Alarming News

Is there a better song to be listening to as your plane lands in Las Vegas?

Listen young people I’m 74
And I plan to live 60 or 70 more
Yeah I’ve been all around I’ve done a few things
And I spent a few nights on the floor, oh!

Did everything wrong but I never got caught
So of course I would do it all over again
I surprised many people who’d written me off
Years ago now they’re way underground

Nobody asked me but here’s my advice
To a young man or woman who’s living this life
In a world gone to hell where nobody’s safe
Do not go quietly unto your grave
Do not go quietly unto your grave

Learned a few tricks and I’ll learn a few more
And I got enough bullets to fight a small war
Nobody asked me so here’s my advice
To a young man or woman who’s living this life
In a world gone to hell where nobody’s safe

Do not go quietly unto your grave
Do not go quietly unto your grave
Do not go quietly unto your grave
Do not go quietly unto your grave

“Do Not Go Quietly Unto Your Grave” by Morphine

Song of the Day

“The Only One” by Morphine.

It’s off of “Good”, my favorite Morphine album. If the album has a theme, it’s a celebration of individuality and sincere connection. Some of the songs are “nobody understands me but you” (”I know you”, “You speak my language”) and others are “you’re not like anybody else I’ve ever met” (”The only one”, “You look like rain”, “Good”). It also has one of the best “on the way to Atlantic City” songs ever: “Have a lucky day”.
