Happy Weekend Widdershins!

The weather is starting to slowly change (although after a few cool days we suddenly got a couple of 90 degree humid ones…) But now we are back to our regularly scheduled program of a beautiful, sunny, cool, breezy day. Comfortable enough to wear shorts and t-shirt, but cool enough to actually enjoy the city!

What is happening in your neck of the woods? What’s on your mind? What are you listening to? Post some tunes you think are kind of underrated. Something that never became a big hit, but you think is grade-A material.

 

I was able to crop his paw out

Good Weekend Widdershins

I bet you already guessed that I’ll be absent most of the day and into the evening today because football.

It’s been said  “weather: you just can’t do anything about it”.  Well, they weren’t counting on tRump and his ever handy sharpie.  He’s not going to let measly little things like science, or meteorology, or complex mathematical formulas get in his way.   That hurricane was going to Alabama-by-god!

So while we mere mortals can’t do anything about the weather, we can do something about weather music.  So let’s take a look at some songs about weather.

Addendum:  tRump had such a hit with the hurricane map he decided he’d finish up the border wall/fence also.

 

Hello Widdershins! Happy Sunday!

So let’s see, has anything happened? Anything at all? Hmm… Oh yeah, Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide and Donald Trump tweeted a meme blaming the Clintons for murdering him. Mind you, Trump wasn’t the only one doing that. Bernie Sanders supporters did the same thing. So there you are.

On to more pleasant weekend shenanigans. This week I noticed something: the days are getting noticeably shorter. I know it’s still only middle of August, but the seasons have been so crazy this year that I think summer is over and Autumn is just around the corner. So, in anticipation of cooler temperatures (one hopes) and Autumn, let’s do Autumn/cold weather themed songs.

Good Weekend Widdershins

So this past week we had the second of twenty-three quilizion Democratic candidate debates.  Actually I’m not sure how many are scheduled but I know the next one is set for September in Houston Texas.  I’ll add a widget for that later.

Purportedly the idea is to present all the candidates who want to run as the Democratic nominee and have them answer some questions about their positions on various issues.  Then, Democratic voters and the public at large can make a choice on who they prefer and want to support.

So it comes down to choices, and with that in mind let’s take a look at some songs about choices.  Choice or choices can be in the title or lyrics, or it can involve decisions or anything similar.  No strict rules here.

Hello Widdershins!!!! Happy Weekend!

Our Fredster is trying to stay safe from Barry: let’s keep an eye out on this storm and Fredster, please be safe!

I know I’ve been MIA for a bit; I got so burned out by the craziness of it all that I just had to step back, not go back to Twitter, barely read the news. And you know what? Ignorance really is much more blissful. Not following every Trump fart can have a positive effect on your life!! But, of course, one can’t sit there with one’s head buried in the sand. As Al Franken wisely said right after Trump’s election: Folks, this is going to be a marathon, not a sprint. And so it is…

But I am happy to be back amongst friends here, I will try to be less absent as we get ready for the election of our lifetimes.

As far as our musical theme this weekend: let’s do a free-for-all. Dig up your favorite and maybe forgotten songs and melodies!

I will begin with – who else – Madge! This Oscar performance of Stephen Sondheim’s “Sooner or Later,” written for her and the film Dick Tracy, is stunning. She sings the hell out of it. (The song went on to win the Oscar.) And keep an eye on her huge diamond earrings and when one of them falls off.

Let’s take a mini-break from the horrors of the news and celebrate the official coming of beach weather! I think we can take a bit of consolation from the fact that Drumpf’s threatened ICE raids this weekend melted in the summer sun.

Here are a few summer ditties for you all, please contribute your own in comments!

Open thread, of course.

Saw this sometime ago on Maddow and it was probably cuter when the number of Democratic candidates wasn’t large enough to field an NFL football team. Nevertheless, I will persist.

Maddow mentioned at the time how many “B” guys we had running:

  • Cory Booker
  • Pete Buttigieg
  • Beto O’Rourke
  • Bernie Sanders (and now)
  • Joe Biden

So I recalled that this weekend and thought about songs that have words in them or their titles that begin with the letter “B”.

There are more than you would think and here are a few I thought of and found.
