This week our word of the week is Hurricane. Unfortunately, we currently have Hurricane Isaac headed into the Gulf of Mexico. Don’t know for sure which direction it will head at this point but it certainly has everyone’s attention. So….while we are watching to coverage of Isaac, and keeping our finger’s crossed that it doesn’t cause any significant damage, let’s listen to some of the best Hurricane songs ever recorded.
After listening to the music, please take the time to read my note after the last song in the post. Have a great weekend!
Hurricane Carter – Bob Dylan
Rock You Like a Hurricane – Scorpions (with full orchestra)
Like a Hurricane – Neil Young
Hurricane – 30 Seconds to Mars
Republicans/Right Wing Evangelicals: Earthquakes,Hurricanes,Terrorist Attacks-God’s Punishment
Hmm……..I wonder what they will say if Hurricane Isaac hits Tampa and the Republican National Convention next week??????
What is going on in the US? From my position in the so-called socialist Europe I can’t see why people and nature aren’t the most important subjects on this globe. What is it, that some (many?) rightwing people in the US are afraid to lose?
Back here in the Netherlands we’re trying to keep up with all people; rich and poor. And we’re trying (sometimes stumblng) to make a liveable life for everyone; coloured, white, old residents, fugitives, etc.
Your video “God’s Bigots” gives me the creeps and at such strength, that my attention to your musical choices has temperorarily gone.
By the way, since your story about your final playlist, I’m asking myself, there’s hopefully no fysical problem at your side? I am interested in your final playlist; it probably generates a picture of a person thinking about the last fase/period in somebody’s life and that would be meaningfull.
If you don’t want to answer, skip the text and play on 🙂 🙂
