As of the last two days or so, I've been bewitched, bothered, and bewildered by Fiona Apple's version of "Why Try To Change Me Now?". I'm almost pretty sure that I'm almost ready to decide that I almost like her version of it better than Frank Sinatra's.


Aw, heck. Enough pussyfooting. 'Far as I'm concerned, hers blows Frank's version away.

So, without further ados, ...

Here she is:


Anyways, ...


Have you been "obsessing" about any songs lately? If so, care to share?

I've been listening to the "Gangsta" rapper Kendrick Lamar and his new album "Damn." Powerful stuff for the socially conscience as the little brother spits his truth. He did a collaboration with U2 which was an odd mix, but I find the excerpted lyrics from his song "XXX" appropriate giving my latest debates with my fellow Americans on ad.gif (especially my conservative counterparts)

[Chorus: Bono]
It's not a place
This country is to me a sound of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Hail Mary, Jesus and Joseph
The great American flag
Is wrapped and dragged with explosives
Compulsive disorder, sons and daughters
Barricaded blocks and borders
Look what you taught us!
It's murder on my street, your street, back streets
Wall Street, corporate offices
Banks, employees, and bosses with
Homicidal thoughts; Donald Trump's in office
We lost Barack and promised to never doubt him again
But is America honest, or do we bask in sin?
Pass the gin, I mix it with American blood
Then bash him in, you Crippin' or you married to blood?
I'll ask again—oops—accident
It's nasty when you set us up
Then roll the dice, then bet us up
You overnight the big rifles, then tell Fox to be scared of us
Gang members or terrorists, et cetera, et cetera
America's reflections of me, that's what a mirror does

Hit 'em up boy!! We call that FIRE!! devil.gif "Close your eyes to look around" now that line, it definitely applies to the "Liberal media" thread where "Why the news keep telling me about myself in a way I don't want to see myself" keeps resurfacing.

I bought a CD. I think it is the second one? It is Abba. The album is The Visitors. 'Tis only 30 years old. I had not heard most of the songs before.

Quite enjoying the tunes and lyrics.

These four have some talent. I would think some of these songs would be hits today but that is probably my opinion more than the public's.

I'm turning to a bit of blues with Otis Taylor.

Nice tunes guys, some of that I'm familiar with!

I have something that's practically never played on the radio. I've been a huge Fleetwood Mac fan since I was little but this is a live performance I hadn't heard about until just recently. It's the live version of Big Love with Lindsey Buckingham on the guitar.....


I don't say this lightly when I say that I very rarely think a live performance compares with the studio recorded version, but this is one of the few songs I can say was actually better than the studio recorded version. It almost sounds like an entirely new song with how intensely he's able to play the guitar. I bet the members here wouldn't be disappointed hearing this one, though it's possible with how subjective music can be for everyone.


Have you heard much Bono or primarily through the song you shared?
