Out of the blue the song "Get Together" popped into my mind, a little before my time, didn't even remember who sang it.......anyways, my BF looked it up for me, turns out it was done by a band called " The Youngbloods"...great old hippy song....optomistic message.
Now here's where it gets weird, we start looking into this band's history and discover this song was put on a list after 911 by Clear Channel that recommended this song along with many others not be played because of "questionable lyrics"....really!?
Check out this list, some of the greatest tunes ever, "Imagine" John Lennon, "What a wonderful world", Louis Armstrong, to name a few......old and new classics that provoke emotion, many personal favorites of mine.
The events surrounding 911 were certainly a catalyst to my awakening and disillusionment of our corrupt government run behind the scenes by outright criminals, too evil to even comprehend. The idea of even trying to "highjack" our feelings, our bond to fellow humans, by witholding the small comfort certain music brings us is yet another example of why we need to show these monsters the door.
Maybe we desend on Washington and BLAST every song on this list until TPTB are so sleep deprived they have no choice but to address our issues!
Absolutely true. It gets down to basics. “Get Together” is the downfall of the elite, for they rule us based on divide and conquer. The way they divide us is so powerful and professionally enacted, it is an enormous challenge to overcome. But that leads to another great song, in the panorama of the many that come forth from the human spirit . . .and that song is . . . . We Shall Overcome!
this should be started in a different post its a good topic music does make us listen to the message of common men our subconscious has been armed with all we need to know to beat them
