It's President's Day weekend and with Covid receding (for the time being), it's a vacation for many Americans (sending kind thoughts to all the people who have to work through it). So this weekend's music thread is about vacations, relaxing, hitting the beach, traveling, whatever sounds like an enjoyable vacation in the lyrics of your favorite songs. So sip that umbrella drink and put on your beach sandals, time to take a musical vacation.
The Superbowl is being played by the Los Angeles Rams and The Cincinnati Bengals, two tough animal mascots. So to celebrate the weekend's battle between Rams and Bengals, this weekend's music thread is for songs about animals. Giddyup!
Record setting job growth so unemployment is down, the leader of ISIS is killed, courts are preventing Republicans from gerrymandering away people's voting rights, Covid infections are down sharply (though deaths are still too high) and the Olympics have started while the Superbowl is played next week. Lots of things going on that are about winning so this weekend's music thread is about winning and losing, playing, games and being active.
This weekend's music thread celebrates taking a stand and especially, the music of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Foo Fighters. We are looking for leaders and with his selfless stand against Spotify spreading Rogan's Covid lies that kill, Neil has stepped up to be one.
On this MLK holiday weekend, our music thread is a tribute to this remarkable man, the principles he stood for and the vision he had and acted on to bring about a better world where people would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
This week we observed the one-year anniversary of the Trump-led attempt to overthrow our democracy on January 6, 2021. Our nation and our democracy held firm and we're still standing against the Republican Party of Insurrection but we will need to pass voting rights protections to keep standing strong. We can't let down now. So the theme for this weekend's music thread is about standing up, staying strong, and fighting to win against the destructive forces trying to rip democracy out of the majority's hands.
After the past five years of dealing with the Trump Regime, the 1/6 insurrection that continues today, Covid, Climate-Change-caused natural disasters, and a Tiger King sequel, we sure deserve a good year! To celebrate the start of 2022, this weekend's music thread is about beginnings. Songs about things that are new or starting and songs that express hopes and desires for good things you would like to see in 2022 are all on the fresh slate this weekend.
Those empty holiday stockings are growing more excited about being filled with candy…not to mention the boys and girls dreaming of emptying them and getting those sugarplums in their tummies. So this weekend’s music thread is for songs about sugar, honey, candy and things that are sweet.
We're in the last weeks when most Americans are seeking the perfect gifts for those they care about while Trump's followers have it easier because they'll buy anything. So this weekend's music thread is for songs about shopping and any types of things you can buy, sell, give or receive.
It's your turn to Come Together with Beatle songs from Yesterday that mean Something to you and you can listen to Any Time At All or Eight Days a Week because Tomorrow Never Knows.
