It's Father's Day Weekend so it's a good time to take some time to share gratitude for fathers who have loved, taught and helped raise their children to be good and kind people. Share songs that are about fathers, children or that you want to send to your father whether he's here or looking down on you.
Weep for the Uvalde parents. They will never again hear the laughter of their children. For the grandparents, uncles, and aunts who will never again receive those precious hugs and kisses from their beloved grandchild, nephew, or niece.
This weekend's music thread is dedicated to the poor victims and their devastated families and friends in Uvalde. Songs about children, parents, family, love and life are the theme this weekend.
Karma is indeed a bitch, and both Will Smith and Chris Rock are learning from it. One will have to do penance; the other will benefit. I leave it up to you to figure out who is who.
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson epitomizes what excellence looks like to the fullest despite all the obstacles placed before her path — stoically facing a gaggle of stupid questions such as when Lindsey Graham asked her to rate her faithfulness.

We can and should take this time to celebrate the marvelous moms who are with us now and those who may not be here but are always in our thoughts. Songs about women, mothers, and children are what we're sending out along with our love to moms around the world this weekend!
Among my list of pet peeves, is liberal. Is this because the conservatives on FOX made it toxic so I had to choose progressive? Maybe at first. But I did the little researching thing, and prefer left or progressive for several international and historic(al?) reasons.
The holiday representing the Pagan tribute to Spring and the Christian legend of rebirth is celebrated this weekend, Easter it is! It is a time to take joy in the gift of life and its regeneration. So this weekend's music thread is dedicated to songs about the cycle of life, nature and joy.
Recording their first song in 30 years, Pink Floyd (featuring two of the three surviving members of Pink Floyd, David Gilmour and Nick Mason), plays background behind the Ukrainian singer from the band Boombox, Andriy Khlyvnyuk, and his rendition of a Ukrainian ballad, "Hey Hey Rise Up". The song's profits go to help Ukraine. So this weekend's music thread is for songs dedicated to the incredibly brave and terribly suffering people of Ukraine.
