I’m going to keep this thread going.

It’s a welcome departure from dreary dialogues about the systematic dismantling of the nation, by the worst people on the face of the earth.  I mean, common —and even heinous — criminals, and murderous tinhorn third world dictators, you can kind of understand.  Not excuse.  But sort of understand.  They mostly come from such effed up backgrounds and cultures, that to seize control of their situations — or try to, anyway — you can kind of see why they might do that.

But the lying quislings who are destroying the greatest nation on earth, at the expense of so many lives and so much treasure, and generating so much corruption and perversion and misery;

they are intentionally turning the land of opportunity, the land of the free and the home of the brave, into a socialist, technocratic, tyrannical dystopia because of their twisted, hateful ideologies.  And their hatred of the America that most of us love.  These are people who have benefitted in every way from living in the mightiest, and greatest, nation in history.  And who in return have demonically planned and worked continually, never resting, busy as termites, to subvert and overthrow a nation “by, of, and for the people”.  With “inalienable rights”, granted by God.   And whose efforts are finally coming to satanic fruition.

This thread is also a welcome departure from endless, pointless theological back and forth with folks who are ignorant of both science and spiritual truth.  And have no real interest in either.

Linking good music seems a much more worthwhile use of time.

Here are variations on a theme.

Most of you, I take it, are familiar with the landmark film “Standing in the Shadows of Motown”.  If not — you should be.  If you like great music.

It’s a doc about “The Funk Brothers”, which is what the stable of musicians who played on every Motown hit in the 60s-early 70s called themselves.  That was during a time when “Hitsville USA” was making a distinctly Black contribution to American culture.  Some of the greatest music of all time.  A real, and unique, CONTRIBUTION to a shared American culture.  Not the debasement of it that was ushered in with urban, hip-hop, rap, etc.

Around 2005 or so, the remaining FBs that were alive at that time reunited for a concert.  And the film tells their story.  

I’ve already linked what I think is one of the real highlights.  Here is the same vocalist, singing an early Motown classic.  And doing a stand up job of it.  “Heatwave”:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTKFR3ra2ts

And here is a version of the same song by The Who, when they were still part of the England’s “Mod” phenomenon:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xt-LaMmKRec

Finally, a version by The Jam.  A British band, part of the “Next Wave” that they, The Sex Pistols, and The Clash ushered in.  The were part of a Mod revival in the mid-late 70s.  And refused to Americanize themselves for a US audience.  So while they were HUGE overseas, they never got much traction here.  Paul Weller, their prodigy singer-songwriter, pulled the plug on the group at the height of their success in ’82 or so.  A decision still mourned by Jam fans.  And he never  looked back.  He’s had a long, successful solo career, and never reunited with his former mates, despite fervent calls to do so.

And, since the sound is a little rough on that one, it seems only fair to add the album track:

This is what happens when you search on too many cover songs.  You get suggestions like this.

Pretty amazing, actually.  There's a ton of these vids...
