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.
It's Thanksgiving weekend, a day for thankfulness, family, and antacids. To celebrate Thanksgiving, our weekend music thread is about being thankful, love and any song about something you're thankful for. Including antacids.
The GOP now openly supports sedition, racism, death threats towards fellow Congresspeople, men who sexually assault women, pedophiles, voter suppression, and murdering protesters. And that's just the shortlist. How do they sleep at night? That's the musical question we ask in this weekend's music thread through the theme of songs that ask questions.

Georgians have a choice. They can re-elect Warnock, who, during his two years, has accomplished much for the state of Georgia. Or replace him with Walker. Who, up to this point, has demonstrated he is a complete buffoon without knowledge or understanding of what it takes to be a US Senator and will take his marching orders from Trump.
