Music Show #61 – 8/25/2017 – Stand Up and Speak Out

Periodically we need to take some time to consider the direction our country is headed, and if we conclude that it is being misdirected we need to speak up. These songs address this.

Song #1 Stand Up (and Be Your Love)” – A song that calls for a renewed effort by us to stand up and share our love.  Perhaps, by doing so, we can bring about some changes to make this world a little better for everyone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e71rta1hAiw&index=26&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF

Song #2 “Not in This Dear Old Country of Ours” – A Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger style protest song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wv591dA4i6c&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=29

Song #3 “The Un-American American” – An examination of the many tactics being used to keep legitimate voters from voting or the means used to disqualify their votes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VilWCUds4Pc&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=28

Song #4 “Words Can Say a Lot” – A hopeful song at a time of great uncertainty.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPxW8a0iI2o&index=31&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF

Song #5 “You’ve Made Your Choice” – When we’ve made our choices whether they be political or personal we need to own them. Then we can go on from there if we need to try to revise the results of those choices.

Song #6 “Turn Down Your Gaslight Donny” – A great sing-a-long for those who are frustrated with Trump’s antics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6V3nIKjmJY&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF&index=30

Song #7 “We Threw It All Away” – New verses to a Bob Dylan song that advocates a strong defense of our democracy at a time when it seems to be under assault. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9SYnw1IJKU&index=32&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF

Song #8 “If There’s a Will, There is a Way” – “America can’t breathe if we refuse to see the things we need to change today.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmM_6243HNE&index=17&list=PLD31BC21FB0FC09BF
