the best songs ever: the lost years
(09-02-2019, 04:14 PM)Eric the Green Wrote: I'm glad to rediscover this one from 2006, which won an Academy Award for "An Inconvenient Truth," the only documentary ever to win an Award for best original song. "I Need to Wake Up" has the musical qualities so lacking in the music of those of her contemporaries who indulged in heavy-metal screaming and screeching. Melissa Etheridge demonstrates in her songs the musical skill and soulful competence that reminds me of The Who, and of JB at his best, as in "Pray." I have to tag this one as one of the best songs from late in "the lost years." She is a borderline BoomerXer, and certainly shows in this song more than the cynicism attributed to Xers.

This song also reminds me of this fine movie song from the same time period, from The Ultimate Gift, which the artist said was inspired by her desire to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane?  Oh yeah, Ole Dorian is spinning around Mar-a-Lago Club, West Palm Beach Fla.  Hurricane Dorian should be renamed to Hurricane Trump because he's been very hard on the forecasters because he was supposed to peter out in the Carrib, and didn't, meandered off track a bunch of times and is now stuck over the Bahamas. So, hurricane Trump is just stalled out, probably playing some golf with a few feeder bands. We'll have to see if he wants to visit Disney;and or will go fishing.

Oh, and dropping a nuke isn't a very good idea 'cause the fallout will go round the round the storm's rotation and hurricanes will take that extra heat as a nice snack. 

ring around the stormy, pockets full posey
the storms will still mosey,
nukes ashes, nuke ashes
from the hurricane outflow, they all fall down Big Grin 

Round and round, ah yeah, let's have it.  A song for today!
