Re: Facing the Music – Suggested Songs for Your Trip Home

As you go home to face the music of your vote to end Medicare as we know it, we know you’re worried about what your constituents are going to say…for good reason. Here is a suggested playlist for your trip:

Think – Aretha Franklin (1968)

Desperado – Eagles (1982)

Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word – Elton John (1976)

Hard to Say I’m Sorry – Chicago (1982)

I’m Sorry, So Sorry – Brenda Lee (1960)

You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Rolling Stones (1969)

You Got Another Thing Coming – Judas Priest (1982)

Mama Said – The Shirelles (1961)

Sorry (I Ran All the Way Home) – The Impalas (1959)

Cryin’ – Aerosmith (1993)

Who’s Sorry Now? – Connie Francis (1958)

Lost Cause – Beck (2002)

I Learned the Hard Way – Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings (2010)

Not Ready To Make Nice – Dixie Chicks (2006)

Bad Day – Daniel Powter (2005)

Troubles – Alicia Keys (2001)

When the music stops, you should try listening to the American people.

    Laurie Anderson: Excellent Birds

    • escribacat says:

      Hey Truth, good to see you! Hope you are well. I love Laurie Anderson. I saw her years ago in Oakland — one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.

      • Truth says:

        Hi e’cat, thanks, I’m fine, I hope you too.

        Yes, I like Laurie Anderson, she creates interesting stuff. The concert must have been great! I watched a few videos with her and Lou Reed, and thought it was interesting how they communicated through music. Then I came to find out that they are married -- makes a lot of sense!

  9. Truth says:

    Some good old gold: Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven

  10. Buddy McCue says:

    “Let’s forget about the whining and the cryin’ and the shootin’ and the dyin’ and the fella with the switchblade knife…”

  11. Truth says:

    Ok, it was only the Eurovision Song Contest and although it’s not at all apparent, the contest is about the composers and not about the performers. Still I think Anna Rossinelli (because of whom I paid attention to the show in the first place) should have been amongst the top 5 (and most certainly not last!!!). Not the best song, but an excellent band from Basel, Switzerland:

  12. AdLib says:

    Bito, thanks so much for covering on the music thread! I was sidelined unexpectedly today! You’re a friend and a pal!

    A Little Help From My Friends -- Beatles

    Put It There, Pal -- Bob Hope and Bing Crosby

  13. ADONAI says:

    Beastie Boys -- Sure Shot

    CLUTCH -- A Shogun Named Marcus


    Ben Harper -- Pleasure and Pain(original version)


    High on Fire -- Snakes For The Divine



  14. funksands says:

    Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings -- 100 days 100 nights


    • funksands says:

      The guy who started the label and the band is the white bassist in the back. He worked for Rick Rubin for a while, and spun off on his own to create a label that focused solely on 50’s soul music. He records all of his music and videos on original equipment from that era. Sharon Jones was a lady he found in his Brooklyn neighborhood working at a laundrymat I believe. Purist. :-)
