“Books are like seeds. They can lie dormant for centuries and then flower in the most unpromising soil.” (Carl Sagan); “Nothing ever dies on the Internet.” (anon.); “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” (Madison Ave. [m]adman). My posts amalgamate these three philosophical elements into one novel experience; they champion critical thinking, human dignity / equality, levelheaded / even-handed / liberty-based governance and solid environmental stewardship. C’mon in!
So much has changed in our world / our lives this past year. If the musical selections, which follow, uplift your spirits even half as much as they’ve elevated my own, I will consider my New Year’s Eve, DJ stint a resounding success.
As we will soon eye and ear witness, dozens of our human family, whilst sheltering at home, have virtually assembled to cheer us up. Until the vaccines are available to every member of our global community, it is our responsibility to help save lives / save humanity by following the pandemic protocols set by our world’s finest scientists, epidemiologists and health care professionals; by emulating the exemplary behavior of our featured star quality, musically talented, selfless souls, too.
This DJ’s Rx for 2021 and beyond: Give these inspirational tunes a listen; 1, 2, as many times as necessary. They are sure to be habit forming, but, this will only be in the best way imaginable.
SIr Paul McCartney, in fine, stylish retro mode, adds his distinctive voice to the lengthy list of vocalists (both pros and laypersons), who, for nine decades, have been covering the clef dotting Harold Arlen’s and wordsmith Johnny Mercer’s 1944 composition… Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.
Their catchy tune served as a WW-II morale booster for legions of war weary souls… soldiers and civilians alike.
If you’ll now indulge me in a little wordplay, I’d certainly Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive, too, to say Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive will help summon up our own similar sentiments as we… the socially distancing souls… all soldier on to do our civic and moral duty… to prevent further spread of Coronavirus… to ultimately save humanity.
Playback Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive frequently. It’ll be
HABIT FORMING but only in the best sense of that phrase.
Stay Safe! Stay Home! Stay Healthy! And also Stay On Board with medical professionals and legal authorities, who routinely back their health promoting, life saving advice to us with sound, time honored scientific / medical facts.
