5/5/2008 Good Noise


This morning we played about a half-dozen new CD's, some old reggae, some of my favorite singers, a 3-song birthday set for my Dad (2 Rosie Ledet and the Buffy Ste-Marie) and the last 4 songs were 'music for our times'. The Gil Scott-Heron track was written in the late 1960's and is still partly timely today. The Bare Naked Ladies did a very satirical look at the Iraq war, then Kathleen Edwards did a fairly 'in your face' view of the Iraq war and finally Michael Franti Spearhead closed with one of their songs written after his tour of Iraq several years ago.
