A message to you Rudy
I couldn’t finish a week featuring 2 Tone Records without one from The Specials. Originally written and recorded back in 1967 by Dandy Livingstone, this version—produced by Elvis Costello—made it to No. 10 in the UK singles chart for The Specials in 1979.
At times, despite the best of intentions and energy employed, relationships don't work out + people have 2 face the dire reality that they have to go their...
...because you are Worlds Apart,...hearts broken in two.😢
I know hardly a song that expresses this better than the one by...
"Someday, love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched and went our separate ways."

There is a real way to celebrate the demise of the #Christofascist leader's corporate empire*:
"The judge has ordered cancellation of all [NYS] business certs of "any entity controlled or beneficially owned by Donald J. Trump, Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump, Alan Weisselberg, & Jeffrey McConney."
CW: if you suffer from some kind of anxiety about the future, etc., do not listen to the lyrics.

I think everyone has heard of the Cult of Personality. but like Faith No More they are way more than one song

dedicating it to
#SirDrBrianMay´s BIRTHDAY a few days ago
and add an article found by @TheMetalDog (thank you!):
This is a very decidedly non-ska song from the usually very #ska Suicide Machines. But in light of recent developments with the #WGA and #SAGAFTRA / #SAG, I felt it was appropriate to use it was my #SongOfTheDay
The song dates itself with the line "it's 1998 and the time has come to order." But it still served as an amazing closing track for "Battle Hymns."
(Yes, I know "Jah" was technically the last track. That's only like 5 seconds. Work with me here.)
