GOOD WEEKEND WIDDERSHINS!
Let me see here…I do believe we are back to our “normal” schedule with the “Lazy (whatevers) actually occurring on the weekend days.
Last weekend-Saturday was the first of April, but we didn’t cover the unofficial April Fools’ Day thing. So this weekend we shall.
Besides fools on the first day of April we sure as hell have a lot of other fools we’ve been dealing with for the past few months: Trump fools (of course I refer to his orangeness along with his supporting cast), Republican fools of the elected type in the House and Senate, and voting fools as in the oh-so-unappreciated and unacknowledged voters of Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, ad infinitum. These voting fools felt their voices have not been heard (cough-cough) enough, and don’t feel they are appreciated or loved enough. They are foolish enough as to vote against their own best interests in an attempt to…what, be heard? (Note to same: we’ve heard you…a lot…in fact more than you deserve.)
So let’s take a look at musical fools in song. There are lots of them, songs that is, although there are also lots and lots of fools too, musical or not. These fools tend to skew toward those experiencing bad romances, but there are others also.
(1) Ship of Fools ~ Robert Plant
(2) American Fool ~ John Cougar (before adding back Mellencamp?)
(3) Fooled Again ~ Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
(4) Fool For The City ~ Foghat (There’s love here, alright, but it’s not for a woman; it’s for city life)
(5) Fooling yourself ~ Styx
(6) Ship of Fools ~ Grateful Dead song
(7) What A Fool Believes ~ Doobie Brothers
Okay Widdershins add a song or songs of your choice below. No need to say it’s an open thread.
