Oh my! Excellent choice
This thread made me smile. I happen to have just such a playlist on Spotify. I guess we’re all a little obsessed with this stuff.
In addition to the others already listed. I’ve also got–
Right Before My Eyes-Unpeeled by Cage the Elephant
Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
Missed the Boat by Modest Mouse
Lampshades on Fire by Modest Mouse
(Don’t Fear) The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season – Buffett
Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire
What has surprised me is that there are no new Dylan’s surfacing during these ugly times. We had tons of antiwar musicians in the late 60’s. Has our public education destroyed the ability of the snowflakes to connect the dots? The youth I work with think what is happening is normal. No concept of history.
We will all reap what we sow.
Can’t do much better than these five. Here’s some Dylan for you, Nate.
