The Godmother of Rock And Roll

Sister Rosetta Tharpe shows off her raw talent in this legendary clip from the early 1960s.

That’s how the light gets in…

The birds they sing

at the break of day

Start again

I heard them say

Don’t dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
Ah the wars they will
be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
of every government —
signs for all to see.

I can’t run no more
with that lawless crowd
while the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud.
But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
a thundercloud
and they’re going to hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring …

You can add up the parts
but you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.

“Anthem”  by Leonard Cohen

The B-52’s – Dance This Mess Around

Remember when you held my hand
Remember when you were my man
Walk talk in the name of love
Before you break my heart
Think it over, think it over
Roll it over in your mind
Why don’t you dance with me
I’m not no Limburger
Just a limburger

Dance this mess around
Dance this mess around, ’round, ’round

Everybody goes to parties
They dance this mess around
They do the Shu-ga-loo
Do the Shy Tuna
Do the Camel Walk

I’m really trying to face up to some of the scarier things that happened during my illness and work through those so that I can move on from it, not only physically but psychologically, because the mind and the body are so connected. Who knew?!” ~Kathleen Hanna
