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 two  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:

Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty

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:

All Together Now – The Beatles

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 !!!

too much, Tiger, thanks. (JFK, my first national election, just a few years ago)

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

For everyone discouraged by last week’s news-

Thanks from the Ca resident, still damp from all that rain!
I just watched that movie last week.
And you reminded me why I sooo adored Neil when I was young!

Thank you j’avaz, White Album 1968. That’s what I hear, before my time. 🙄

javaz

I know it!
The Beatles were way before my time, too!
I heard they used to record songs on big, vinyl discs at one time, can you imagine?
😯

bito

How did they put those big things in their CD player?

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.

Khirad

I don’t know how savage these are, but it made me think of this acid house classic:

Now I wonder if a man who never actually sees his wife naked before they get married and she wears this bra, can he sue for fraud.

For gravity K, I don’t think so. Then again be careful what you wish for guys. When those pants are flapping around the ankles, the tables could turn. 🙄

OMG I watched the whole thing! Fascinatingly ridiculous!

😆 “savage breasts” indeed.

😆 Khirad, decidedly more “savage” than I got, but then again, I hear that “size” doesn’t really matter to us girls.

Nicole, it great to see you here too. I remember that you asked for pictures of my furry ones and will try to put something in Author’s Cafe soon and hope you are around to see it.

Take care!

nicole473

I would love to see them, Kalima!! I’ll be around off and on. I’m in the process of relocating, and hope it’s over my the end of May.

Kalima

Ok then nicole, just for you I’ll get something together and it will be posted in Author’s Cafe so you can take a peek anytime.

I hope everything goes well with your move.

Take care and good luck! 🙂
