Mu On Mo #45 – At Twilight’s Last Gleaming

November 5, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Mr President ?

I know you’re there, I mean how could you not read this blog ?

Anyhoo, I have something I want to say.



It’s about the election.

The country’s divided along party & ideological lines like never before.

It looks bad.



In such a polarised socio-political climate, I’ll wish any victor the best of luck.

But this is not about that.

It’s about you losing.



Cuz there’s a chance of that now.

So, if for some reason, whatever the reason, you fail to win.

& don’t get re-elected, I just want to say…



…it’s ok, Mr President.

Cuz while some mockingly called you a Messiah & others gladly believed it, you’ve never been more than a man who did nevertheless perform certain miracles.

You worked hard, Mr President, so so hard & it shows in your tired face & greying hair.



So, should you lose… it’s ok.

You achieved & for that you’ll be reviled by your foes & remembered fondly by your supporters.

But just between the 2 of us, kick Mittens’ white ass as you listen to a patriotic song that got the following comment on YouTube…





“My God hearing her voice is like listening to an angel! She is was truly blessed with a great talent!”






?

& just how do you know how the voice of mythical being sounds like, hmmm ???

Anyhoo, here comes the talent…













For the election, that was Whitney Houston – The Battle Hymn Of The Republic.

See you another time for more Music On Monday ?

…that’s if we’re still around, right, Mr President ?


Mu On Mo #07 – John & Lurve II/IV

February 13, 2012



With a certain chance of us all dying a horrible death some time during this apocalyptic year, it’s better to focus elsewhere.

& to soothe the soul, what’s better than a few tunes ?

Here’s some Music On Monday…



Hello & welcome to the 2nd part of a 4-part Lurve themed Mu On Mo.

After the still recent & unexpected news about Whitney Houston, I very nearly reconsidered today’s pick, as “I Will Always Love You” & so many other love songs of her seem more appropriate than ever.

But… this isn’t nor has it ever been The Whitney Houston Fan Blog, so for the time being the RIP post will have to suffice & besides that… today’s song needs to be heard too.



Now even though Valentine’s Day isn’t until tomorrow & only lasts a single day, I feel the following song really changes that.

It’s a song that can be listened to any time of the year & as soon as you do, you’ll feel instant deep love for your parents, for your pets & later (as you discuss that) for your psychiatrist.

It’s also the song that got the following comment on YouTube…


“Best lyrics ever. Bob Dylan must be jealous.”



Oh yes, high praise indeed but so very true.

For it is not just any ol’ love song.

Listen, feel the Lurve & enjoy the song…













From the 80’s with love… I think, that was P.I.L. (AKA Public Image Limited) – This Is Not A Love Song.

See you another time for more Music On Monday.

…that’s if we’re still around.


RIP

Oh dear.

Even with all that happened in the last decade or so, the news still came as a shock…

Because when people are in a downward spiral seemingly of their own making, you want them to snap the Hell out of it & do better to get better & when they finally seem to & then they die… well, it’s even more tragic to the point of being unfair, you know ?



Maybe what it boils down to is the following lyric…

“Bittersweet memories, that is all I’m taking with me.”

But for me it’ll always be that girl who wanted to dance with somebody (who loved her).






Whitney Houston RIP
