The Widdershins

Posts Tagged ‘music

Hi gang. Hope your weekend is going well. I find it hilarious that the crazy right is annoyed by Eric Holder saying “When they go low, we kick ’em”. Of course they are leaving out the last part – ‘nothing illegal of course’. Where would they be if they couldn’t take words out of context? My reply to them is “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Regarding Madamab and Quixote’s recent posts, it’s time to fight! No matter how discouraged we may be, we have to gather the strength to fight back at every turn. I’m thrilled to see all the national media attention of our hateful, racist SOS running for Governor in Georgia. Georgia started going deep red when former Republican SOS Cathy Cox introduced Diebold voting machines years ago with no paper trail. Coincidence? I don’t think so. If Brian Kemp wins Georgia by cheating – anything, the least innocuous – I want to see lawsuits flying at him from six different directions. At least, the results should be scrutinized like never before.

I also want to see the courts continue to smack, or at least, slow down Trump’s terrible policies. I want to see deep reporting on Trump’s foreign bank entanglements. But, right now I want to see a whole lot of Republicans lose in November. That will get the ball rolling.

Let’s hear some music about strength, strong, fighting and fighting back.

Unspoken – Good Fight

Chicago Feeling Stronger Everyday

Christina Aguilera – Fighter

Shaggy – Strength of a Woman

Raleigh Ritchie – Stronger Than Ever

You didn’t think I would forget this one from the Convention, did ‘ya? We need it more than ever.

“Our Fight Song”

Let’s get to it. Open thread.

Welp. It looks like someone was finally able to unearth some of the financial shenanigins of the Trump family. Yeah, it was a big story for about half a day. Too bad they’re three years too late. We’ll be hearing a lot of ‘statue of limitations’ blah,blah, blah. It will take New York years to bring a case. So what if he ends up owing a 400 million dollar fine? Although it would be interesting if he couldn’t pay and ending up having to sell one of his properties. No foreign bank can bail him out of that. And what about his siblings and kids? I assume they’ve been doing the same. They just pay the fines – if they’re ever caught.

What we really need to know is after the 90’s when US banks wouldn’t lend to him because he was such a failure. How long will it take to dig that up? 2024? Everybody (mostly) knew he was a crook and a con. I’m still pissed at those Republicans in the primary who let him run all over him. They must have done zero opposition research.

So let’s do some music about money – for those that have it and those who don’t.

Donna Summer – She Works Hard For The Money (live at the Nobel Peace Prize concert)

Willie Nelson – If You’ve Got the Money, Honey…

ABBA – Money, Money, Money

Jennifer Lopez – Dinero

Cyndi Lauper – Money Changes Everything

Drake White – That Don’t Cost a Dime

Hi gang! How’s it going? I see Fredster’s countdown thingy on the sidebar is down to 2.3 years to go. Years, people, years. Ugh. How did we make it this far? I guess we’ll keep hanging in until his time is up or Congress comes to their senses and decide it’s time for the madman to go. (which will be the twelfth of never)

In 2016, the 2018 midterms seemed so far away. Now it’s just around the corner and I’m nervous. How can we be sure of anything with voter suppression, hackable voting machines, Russians crawling around in the voter rolls and out-right voter purges by our own damn politicians?! We can’t. All we can do is wait and bide our time.

Let’s do some music related to time.

Chicago – Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is? (check your volume)

Matchbox 20 – 3 AM

The Rolling Stones – Time Is On My Side (lots of screaming fans here)

Pink Floyd – Time (again, check volume)

Maria Muldaur – Midnight At The Oasis

REO Speedwagon – Time For Me To Fly

This should be pretty easy. Open Thread.

Happy Sunday everyone. Are we having a good weekend? I thought we’d do a ‘cities and towns’ theme today. I don’t have any real commentary, so let’s get started. Band name, song about a city/town or song title.

John Mellencamp – Small Town

Journey – City By The Bay

Petula Clark – Downtown

Atlanta Rhythm Section – Imaginary Lover

Glen Campbell – Galveston

Bruce Springsteen – Streets of Philadelphia

Okay, there are quite a few obvious choices out there. Let’s see ’em!

Open Thread.

Happy Sunday Widdershins!

Let us put aside that rabid orange turd. Let us hear music that makes you happy. What songs give you joy? What tunes make you smile? What rhythms makes you tap your foot.

This is an open thread!

This is Madonna’s happiest and most perfect love song. Video directed by Herb Ritts.

Hi everyone! Hope your weekend is going well. Let’s add some color to our world today. I’ve always been fascinated by the effect of color on our psyches. They say lighting sets the mood. Well, color sets the emotion. My 6 year old niece asked me “What’s your favorite color?”. I really couldn’t answer that because I love certain shades of all colors. Maybe that’s weird.

So, let’s look for colors, shades, metallics, etc. Fredster did a music post themed ‘having the blues’ not too long ago and we found tons of ‘blue songs’, so I’m going to do some other colors. I’ll start with a few obvious, easy ones.

The Outlaws – Green Grass and High Tides

Coldplay – Yellow

Bob Marley – Red, Red Wine

Procol Harum – Whiter Shade of Pale

Okay, my internet keeps glitching so I’ll try to add more in the comments. Open Thread.

Happy weekend Widdershins. I’d like to say things are looking up, but they really aren’t much are they? We’ve won a few elections, so good. Then, one vicious policy, grifting, criminal act after another comes oozing out of this administration. Oh well, we’ll look up anyway.

I know I’ve been eyeing the sky a lot lately. After a week of rain, the heat came back and brought storm after storm rolling through. Fortunately no tornadoes, but occasional high winds that can topple trees. Those can run me to the basement!

So let’s look to the sky for inspiration this week. Songs about the celestial, links to an amazing weather phenomenon, or beautiful pics of the galaxy beyond. The sky’s the limit!

Bad Company – Shooting Star

Don McLean – Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)

Train – Drops of Jupiter

Eric Clapton – Tears in Heaven

Frankie Avalon – Venus

Actually, the sky is not the limit ’cause this is an open thread!
