Music not only soothes the savage beasts, it can send a message to the savage beasts that “we won’t be fooled again” and “you’re too good to be true”.

Today’s theme is Music that sends a message to someone you fancy, a friend going through tough times, greedy politicians and CEOs, dear old Mom or even your friends at PlanetPOV.

Here are a few messages in a bottle:

These twoย  songs are to send a message to the MSM, the weak-kneed in Congress, the Teabaggers and all those who think losing one Senate seat means the end of the Progressive agenda:

Rockin’ In The Free World – Neil Young

Here’s a message to the insurance companies and corporations trying to own us and our democracy:

We’re Not Gonna Take It – Twisted Sister

Here’s the message I’m sending to Pres. Obama:

I Believe In You – How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

And to all my fellow Planet members:

    Great choices AdLib. Tom Petty ..was perfect, and I’d forgotten all about that Beatles song. All Together Now Have a good night!!

    This goes out to all of us us that are just plain fed up.
    It’s a close friend of mine that I used to play bass with.
    I’d hold the beat down on this one while he figured out the crazy guitar stuff.

      Nice. I’d like titles identifying all the scenes in the second one. I got quite a few of them, especially the Pakistani and Southern references.

    Happy Birthday Bito !!!

    Okay,

    This first one was a fave from 10(?) years ago; yep she was younger then (myself as well, go figure), the message is the same, yet there is such a maturity in her voice/presentation, that has grown with mine. Actually, I think I like the 2009 version better; maybe it’s because both of us have grown up (although I’m probably old enough to be her mum). Nevertheless to the love of my life:

    Then: 1996+


    and now, Australia 2009

    Adlib, excellent choices and sentiment.

    • AdLib says:

      Thanks Nicole! It was hard narrowing them down. My favorite is “I Believe In You”, with the corporate Repub types singing, “Gotta Stop That Man!”

      Didn’t realize how fitting it was till I watched it, been a long time!

    For B’ito --


    For everyone discouraged by last week’s news-


    For all baseball fans --


    For homophobes --


    For California and Arizona folks cleaning up after the storms --


    And just because it’s a great song --


  12. Khirad says:

    I heard it was someone’s B-day today. This one’s for you Bito:

    Hi everyone!

    I won’t lie and tell you that I just woke up because I’m not awake yet. Reading through AdLibs introduction, the first line made me laugh, “Music not only soothes the savage beasts,”
    As many of you know, English is my second language and there are times, when very tired, that I tend to write it upside down and inside out. The “savage beast” part reminded me that as a kid with limited knowledge of my new language, I thought for years that it was “savage breasts” and couldn’t wait for my time to come to grow some. :)

    Love her voice, reminds me a little of Tina Turner.

    here’s a brand new offering by some friends here in the Seattle area…a bit hard hitting sonically. Best listened to really loud.
