Whether home or rolling down the road, you’ll tap your toes:

Dedicated to the Americans trying to get home from Europe, hoping they all are properly screened and properly treated:

Home as a part of us:

Bon Jovi says “this house is not for sale:”

This is still the place we all call home:

From the early 1960s, and the composing team of Gerry Goffin and the incomparable Carole King, a social distancing song:

Now let’s kick up the performance level, with the divine voice of Dionne Warwick on a Burt Bacharach and Hal David number. Just walk on by:

Mr. George Thorogood and the Destroyers are the obvious clean-up hitters:

    This post is proof that America’s warriors can become great disc jockeys, at least some of them, anyway.

    (Could the reverse be true? Has anyone tried it? Wolfman Jack in charge at Fort Benning? Scott Muni mellowing out the US Army War College? Casey Kasem as a public affairs officer in Iraq? C’mon, people, this looks like “Federal grant magnet” is written all over it.)

    On the boys of summer, my seven year old loves to sing along to the song “Sloop John B” but he will insist to the end that the title is “Sloop John Beef.”

    People are crazy

    Times are strange

    I’m locked up tight

    I’m out of range

    I used to care

    But things have changed

    Yup, or maybe Suicidal Tendencies “You Can’t Bring Me Down,” although that is strictly NSFW.
