December Blogcast… Holiday Music With A Message

If you’re ISO hyperactive, chattering chipmunks, a melting down snowman and/or a sleigh-riding / joyriding Santa getting involved in a hit and run slaying of beloved Grandma, etc., this Blogcast will certainly fall short of your expectations.

While such inanity might play out well were we still living in a make-believe, winter wonderland where all is well… WELL… what can I say? We know that’s not true.

Insanity best describes the reality of post Election Day America… a troubled land where far too many folks (not content with making horrific choices up and down their recently cast ballots) have been going on a “celebratory” rampage… one which has, to date, resulted in over 900 hate crimes. And it’s safe to say that they’re far from finished.

Which all provides the perfect lead-in to my holiday Blogcast and my twofold goal. The five tunes I’ve selected will…

  1. Validate those of us, who, year round, already live the spirit of this holiday season.
  2. Remind those who have lost their way that it’s high time to do some serious soul searching… to spark what little compassion may still lurk in their hearts. Maybe then, they’ll stop intimidating and abusing women, ethnic and religious minorities, the LGBTQ community and the aged and disabled?

Well… we can only hope. I mean this, supposedly, is the season of hope… right?

Let’s all keep some good thoughts while giving a listen to the four remaining musical selections…

 

Peter, Paul and Mary ~ Don’t Laugh at Me

New song “One Woman” (International Women’s Day – 3/8/13)

Mint Juleps ~ Every Kinda People

The Workers ~ Let’s Work Together

If you’ve found the above musical, political and social commentary to your liking, meet me back here for my next Blogcast on January 1, 2017.
