“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!
The members of the American Celtic punk band, Dropkick Murphys, reknown for supporting the working class, labor unions and charitable causes, are also our Week #116 tour guides thru the vast expanse of Sunday titled tracks.
On this occasion, via their performance of Sunday Hardcore Matinee, they’ll be attaining musical velocities that’ll likely transcend the speed of sound.
BTW, that Going Out In Style title, above, is also their album title.
Either playback the clip onsite or over @YouTube (offsite option just in case anyone is experiencing any playback issues).
Our next musical adventure takes place seven days from now. Hope you’ll be clickin’ back at that time. Till then…
Way back @Week #16, our ongoing journey into the world of Sunday titled songs (travel date: 12-31-2018) we found ourselves exploring Velvet Underground’s Sunday Morning… a track bookended by a glockenspiel intro / outro.
VU’s likely influence upon the Nineties alternative – emo – pop – punk – indie band Jimmy Eat World, resulted in the latter group’s composition A Sunday, which appeared on their 1999 album ClarityAND, which also just happens to be our Week #81 Sunday Song.
Thanks and Kudos to YouTuber Stephen Carpineta for supplying the mood enhancing visuals… perfect imagery for imperfect times. A walk on the wild side… i.e., our meandering through the underpopulated wilderness… doth neatly conform with our society’s newfound, hopefully temporary, socially distancing lifestyle.
Thanks for stopping by on this day. STAY safe, STAY at home, STAY healthy and meet me back here for our next Sunday Song… seven days from now…
