“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!
It’s now Week #111 of our trekking and tracking thru the mighty realm of Sunday titled songs.
This time out, our tour guide will be Tennessean, Jason DeFord, better known as rapper JellyRoll, who’ll be attempting to cut thru the fog of his hangover; recall his Saturday night escapades; scare up a recreation of his recreation, whereabouts, etc.; all set to his tune, Sunday Morning.
C’mon back for our next musical adventure; seven days from now. Till then…
Be careful not to choose your leaders the same
way you choose your drinking buddies. If you do,
“best” case scenario, he’ll be too hungover to be
functional. Worst case scenario, he’ll be so drunk
on power, it’ll be impossible to get him to leave!
Our Sunday Song Series continues… this week featuring Kris Kristofferson’s Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down. This singer/songwriter’s picturesque storytelling lyrics focus upon the unfocused… i.e., the hungover, who’ve been haunted by liquid spirits / perhaps other substances and now find themselves ruefully ministering (<- forgive the wordplay… it IS Sunday) to the debilitating aftereffects.
Under such circumstances, it’s easy to see how dulcet tones could come in handy… and considering the voices of this vid’s dynamic duo, we’ve hit the jackpot! This particular duet is so apropos, too, seeing how Johnny Cash’s cover has been credited with making Kristofferson’s tune a Billboard Country Music chart topper.
To discover where our next Sunday Song journey will take us, let’s meet up back here seven days from now…
