Playing for Change — Stand By Me

I love this video. And I missed the concert last night. Blech.

U2. Who cares?

U2 was in town last night. And as you can tell by the title, I did not go.

Not only did I not go, I did not care.

This is not some attempt to look cool by hating something. And I really do not hate U2…I just do not care. Which I think is sad. I used to like their music; there are several songs I still like by them. I just do not want to spend time and money to see them in concert.

I think that part of my apathy comes from the fact that Bono is socially and politically active. I really get sick of the actors and performing artists that feel the need to tell us about who to vote for, what to care for, and what to think. Just because you have a microphone does not make you an expert on politics, finances, or other social causes.

I do have to give Bono credit; he appears to genuinely care, and has certainly done a lot more leg work than anyone else in the group I just mentioned. For the record, I am not criticizing his motives or his beliefs. However, there is a part of my mind that lumps him in with the rest of the performers that know absolutely nothing about a subject, and prove it every time they open their mouths.

All I want is a performer that does their job well, without making me think about abused animals, starving children, or who I voted for. Is that really too much to ask? Sometimes…I just want to be entertained. Not all the time, mind you. But if you’re a musician, stick to music. Thanks.

Sara Smile

This is without a doubt the coolest song I’ve heard in a long time…and it goes against my hatred for covers. Jimmy Wayne does Hall and Oates one better in this one…truly awesome.

According to a site I saw today, Jimmy will include this as a single on his new album, due sometime before Christmas. Meanwhile, enjoy this 2003 performance from Yahoo!

Ooh Child

After making the post above about Huruma, I saw this video on Regina’s Family Seasons and knew that I had to put it on here. I love this video…and I feel hopeful when I hear this song. Even though this is a remake, I love this version just as much.

Watch the video, and then show Regina some love by visiting her blog.

One of my favorite songs…and has been known to move me to tears. Yeah, Bubba’s a softie…but you already knew that, didn’t you?
