Oops! Dup Weekend Jukebox: Songs that got us through this winter

Editor snafu/
gives Agonists two to post to.:-)

It’s all good. No need to agonize. If it makes you all feel too schizoid, I can take it away until the end of the weekend.

There’s Steeleweed’s Jukebox thread to vent our rage at useless wars.

“guilty pleasures” encouraged in this second thread.
I survived with songs that got me up in the morning- ballads not so much
What about you?

1. Mott the Hoople: All the Way from Memphis

2. Courtney Barnett: Avant Gardener
3. Paul Simon: So Beautiful or So what?
4. anything by the Decembrists: Wrong Year
5. The Chieftains- with the Rolling Stones: The Rocky Road to Dublin”

Weekend Jukebox: Songs of Liberation and Redemption

Any kind, personal or social, any where, one, the other or both….

Let’s start with two spirituals, as the two different religious stories commemorated this coming week became sung metaphors in the Black American civil rights struggle. Saturday is, as it happens, the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s murder in 1968.

Paul Robeson:” Let My People Go”

The Edwin Hawkins Singers:

Wkend Jukebox: love, oh careless love ?

Need a break from the ice and snow?
… Kleenex handy?
… Ticket to Ride?

Fare well, Agonistas ~nymole

Odetta- Love, oh careless love” – a late version

Merle Haggard: Frankie and Johnny

Patti Smith with Dylan’s “Boots of Spanish Leather”
   at a memorial to her friend Robert Mapplethorpe in France

The Cars, of course: “My Best Friend’s Girl”

or maybe:
The Pretenders: Pack it Up

Ezra Furman: Anything can happen
Neill Young: My Heart
