Weekend Music Thread-Social Conscience and Togetherness

With the recent swearing in, to a second term of President Obama, the message is clear. Social justice and togetherness
is the way forward. President Obama’s message is clear, and it is not new. The message for social change and togetherness and love among us brothers and sisters has always been clear, despite race, religion and gender.

This weekend’s music thread is about social justice, love and togetherness. We all know there is more than enough hatred in this world. So this weekend’s thread is about change for the better and togetherness as a society.

Pick your favorites, no matter how old or new, or just enjoy the music presented. Togetherness is the main message here’
and social justice goes hand in hand toward a better world.

Cassandra Wilson, one of my favorite ladies.

  1. Don’t remember if I ever posted this before, but this guy knocked my socks off the first time I saw him. Mike Younger, a singer songwriter, singing “Together”. Better videos of this, but I like this version.

      • Thanks, KT. I caught him at the Bluebird Cafe when his first CD was released. I have never understood why he didn’t catch on more -- he has amazing talent and has the looks to go with it. Plus his story is interesting -- I was with his record producer (friend of a friend) and evidently this guy grew up on the streets of New Orleans, having been kicked out by his dad. Sad story. ….but the sorrow has come out in the talent. Catch him if ever you can…..

          • HI FC! How the heck are ya? We always mirror each other on music, and you really seem to appreciate “good” music. I’m late these days too -- never more so than today -- but I’ll wait to hear what you think. Take care!

        • AB, now it’s more of a material world and less of a spiritual one. At least that’s what the music industry considers “sellable.” Today’s industry is more about money than it is about good music. Few artists today have the writing talent and musical skills that were once tantamount. Sad really.
