It seems appropriate that in light of the racist law passing in AZ that this week’s Friday Music Thread is dedicated to “fighting the power”.

As a tribute to Earth Day, today’s theme is music about The Earth. That includes songs about our planet, nature, or just life on the third rock. How can I start with any other song? What a Wonderful World – Joey Ramone Fields of Gold – Sting Couldn’t Stand The […]

Music can take you away from your troubles and worries but sometimes it can take you away to an actual place. Today’s theme is music that’s about or from another place, maybe a specific city or country or a bar, maybe it’s World Music that transports you to another culture. […]

With all the hate on display from the other side this week I thought I should make this week’s music thread about love which is by far the subject of most music. It’s not always the positive aspects of love that prevail in the love song genres. Many love songs […]

When AdLib said he was going out of town I said I would cover the music night thread again since taking a break. So I thought this theme was apropos. I have fun doing the music thread but I just got tired of hearing what I wanted to hear and […]

The theme tonight is, like, totally cool…uh…what was I saying…oh yeah! It’s like totally Psychedelic, Man! So share the trippy music (it doesn’t have to be exactly psychedelic) of past and present but don’t Bogart that link. Have to begin with the first name in Psychedelic music in my book, […]

OK I get the feeling some of you did not do your home work so here is a pop quiz. Who is Ruckusium and what comic strip and later animated series did that name come from and why? Who is Birtherbillium and why is that name appropriate? Who is Goebbelium […]
