Music Show #03 – 7/8/ & 7/15 2016 – Delving into Social Issues

This Friday’s show has social issues as it’s focus. These Fresh Toones offer up the opportunity to re-evaluate where we stand on a variety of public concerns. Each song will have a brief intro before energetically delving into some major issues that face us today.

Song #1 “Everybody Needs Something to Believe In” – This song is not about everybody needing to go out and pick a religion, but more importantly it’s about holding your beliefs up to the light and examining them. In the process we may gain a better understanding to who we want to be.

Song #2 “Putting on the Style” – New words to a song written at the turn of the 19th century. It speaks to the the many different false costumes we sometimes robe ourselves in.

Song #3 “The Mother Earth Destruction Blues” – One of the bounciest, foot tapping songs about Mother Earth’s destruction that you’ll ever hear.

Song #4 “That Joke’s Got Go” – Super P.A.C.s and “Dark Money” have got to go. There’s plenty of political corruption already and these methods are just more ways to make it easier.

Song #5 “One of These Days”  A song dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, Pete Seeger and the Civil Rights Movement. Like the hand clapping in the video the beat goes on as the struggle for fairness and justice continues.

Song #6 “It’s Time for an Evolution” – A universal love song that reminds us that as we move ahead we should strive to evolve towards our better self.

Song #7 “Stand Up (and Be Your Love)” – This is 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 little better for everyone.
