Flashback Friday #FBF – Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On #BLM

Picket lines and picket signs. Don’t punish me with brutality. Talk to me. So you can see

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On

A song from the past can easily speak to the present. Marvin Gaye does that and so much more in this track.

Johnny Cash – Man In Black

I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down Living in the hopeless, hungry side of town I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime But is there because he’s a victim of the times

Johnny Cash – The Man In Black

An appropriate song for the times we live in. This song is a protest song of sorts I think. He in his own way is aware of the plight of others and I so appreciate that.

The Police – Invisible Sun

This 40 year old song has some very timely relevance to what we are going through in the world right now. Sometimes music speaks volumes and expresses the angst that people are feeling right now. There is a glimmer of hope though.

All Along The Watchtower – Battlestar Galactica Version

This is from the TV Show Battlestar Galactica from the Crossroads episode. Jimi Hendrix covered this in the 1960’s and was arranged for BSG by Bear McCreary.

This is from the actual episode where Lee “Apollo” Adama encounters Kara “Starbuck” Thrace who has returned from the dead so to speak.

Marie Fredriksson Of Roxette Has Passed Away At 61

Marie Fredriksson who was one half of the Swedish rock duo Roxette has passed away at age 61. She had a long-term battle with cancer. Roxette had hit songs “The Look” and ” It Must Have Been Love”. Her voice was powerful and memorable.

Here is another hit song “Listen To Your Heart” which is a great example of her power and finesse.

A Song I Haven’t Heard In A Minute Or Two – The Police, Synchronicity II

I heard this on the radio this morning and it’s something you don’t hear all the time. This is a powerful song with terrific imagery. One of The Police’s great tunes.

Tunes Tuesday “Feel It Still”

This song has a wicked hook and a line I love “I’m a rebel just for kicks now” which for me its about kicks and a chosen life. You can hear this song on American TV promoting TV shows and other things. Needless to say I am a big fan.
