January 31. No explanation necessary...

Prophets of Rage - The Ballot or the Bullet

“But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.” - Martin Luther King, Jr

No idea why I'd choose this song for today. Just felt right.

I've been getting into Harry Belafonte and various 50s music lately? I've had a thing for 1920s big band music since Boardwalk Empire, and an offshoot of that (since 20s music isn't exactly the easiest to come by at the time) was an appreciation of 40s music, but for some reason the 50s I've avoided, until recently. It's not exactly an unknown song, but it's sure to still put some pep in your step after listening. So go on, jump in the line, rock your body in time.

February 3rd...aka the “Day the Music Died”. Seems only fitting to throw this one up there.

Hmm...try it without using the YouTube tag up top. I did that and it looks like my post is fixed from here.

Very familiar with the song, but how have I never actually seen Nancy Sinatra performing this until now? Yowza.

Im not ashamed to admit it, I have a few of his songs on my playlist

50's music was mentioned so I thought id follow that train of thought, and this one always pops up for me.
Granted, since Planes Trains and Automobiles, I cant help but to chuckle during this song, every, single, time.

I won't quote your post, because that's so much cleanup with 3 quotes within it, but mine above was "Jump in the Line."
