May BlogCast ~ Swan Songs(?) For a Troubled World

Welcome to my BlogCast… this installment is focused on May themed lyrics and song titles.

Admittedly, I’m posting this content a day later than originally intended… my excuse for this tardiness being the difficulty in getting motivated to blog much of anything here @WordPress… not while we’re all standing by, helplessly, eye witnessing Tweetie so thoughtlessly… so gleefully… bullying other likeminded, mindless “leaders”… and then… to add injury to insult… punctuating his 140 characters by casually and callously firing off missiles and dropping the MOAB (Mother of all Bombs).

We might categorize what has transpired within his first 100 days as nuclear brinksmanship, but that would imply that he would know when it’s time to back down (many doubt he does). Left unchecked by sounder minds, all his daring (and double daring) winds up accomplishing is inculcating absolute zero respect (for him) and boundless enmity (towards America)… from whomever he trains his antisocial media crosshairs on.

IN THE END that can only escalate us / the US towards WW-III.

In all honesty… if (when?) Tweetie pushes the button… given my druthers… I’d much prefer residing smack, dead center of some soon-to-be, ground zero bull’s-eye than winding up condemned to becoming either a buried alive, fallout shelter dweller or a staggering, irradiated, rotting corpse existing within his zombie apocalypse.

Sorry to start off on such a downer, but having this discussion is relevant. You see, it was my somber, reflective, angst-ridden mood that got factored into the emotional mix… and played a significant role in what became this month’s musical mix.

True, the lead song qualifies as upbeat… but after that? Well… I found it impossible to maintain this mood… as is evident re the concluding two tracks.

There is one additional noteworthy aspect… the stunning visuals accompanying these tunes… which draw our attention to the natural beauty and fragility of planet Earth and our DNA… which should serve to remind all of humanity of all we stand to lose if (when?) Tweetie loses his temper… and of how, once, in the thick of that post WW-III nuclear winter… “survivors” will soon long for freshly rain-washed air, clear skies, sunrises and sunsets… will soon discover something as primal as falling in love to be complicated and (perhaps in this cataclysmic context) even pointless.

And that all duly noted, it’s time for the music to do the rest of the “talking”…

Temptations ~ My Girl

Bee Gees ~ First of May

Michael Bublé ~ End of May

My props to the inestimable, inexhaustible talents of the YouTube videographers who have made possible all viewed and heard here, this day.

If you’ve liked what you’ve heard, stop by for my next BlogCast on (or in the temporal vicinity of) Thursday, June 1, 2017… i.e., if humanity survives that long.
