Saturday Matinee – Sha Na Na, The Broke Brothers & The Wailers

Saturday, 12 November 2016

Sha Na Na was best known for opening for Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, doing covers of early R&R and R&B hits, but they wrote some original songs as well. “The Vote Song” appeared on their album “The Night Is Still Young” in 1972, also a presidential election year, and if you replace “Nixon” with “Obama” in the lyrics, it still works.

The Broke Brothers‘ cover of the The Stone’s hit is an interesting take. It’s also an appropriate song that sums up my feelings about last Tuesday’s Election Day results.

As a resident of the People’s Republic of California, my vote didn’t count for anything, not even on the specious ballot measures, but at the same time I’m pleased that a certain someone will not become President.

The Wailers perform their classic 1977 hit “Three Little Birds” (sans the late Bob Marley) in 2014. For everyone on all sides of the political spectrum, this seems appropriate as well.

Have a great weekend, folks, and steer clear of the hooligans.

Shut up and eat it.

Update: I had pre-scheduled this post with the assumption that Hillary Clinton would win the Election since all the polls and talking heads said she would. I am pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

There is still hope for this Great Country.

Worth pondering.

The National Lampoon would have done it, but they’re not around anymore so someone had to.

Today’s Headlines: “WE MADE HISTORY”

This is what I found when I opened the paper this morning:

Hillary History Paper

This is the first time in history a political party has nominated the subject of an ongoing FBI investigation.

This amused me; it disturbed me also:
