Be Here Now, Sept 20, 2016

If you haven’t seen the 2013 documentary “Muscle Shoals,” you should.  The studio that spawned a lot of superior music is now closed, and when we passed through today, this is what we saw instead:

Be Here Now

Where once they made music, now buy a gun.
It’s so in style, join in the fun.
Sidearms your pleasure, armed with aplomb.
When you need bolstering, purchase a bomb.
Warfare’s a game. Come join in and play.
You can wage war for real when you grow up some day.

    A type of music of a different sort …? Yes, I’ve seen the film and the one about “The Wrecking Crew” & “Funk Bros”.. All good films. Everything must pass…. Too bad, I say. Cheers Jamie

          I enjoyed them all, Jamie. Thanks so much. I especially loved Joan Osborne and was surprised to find I had 5 of her performances on my playlist. She has so many styles and I never pay attention to who sings what, but I’m crazy about everything I heard her do on your videos and on my iTunes!!! Now I know who she is.
