  • The "I Need To Listen To More" Playlist

    I’m the type of person to listen to the same 5 songs over and over again. So for this playlist, I decided to pull together songs that I really love but are either newer to me, or I don’t listen to them enough. Happy listening!

  • My BTS Beginner Playlist

    My sister-in-law recently introduced me to BTS, so here is my playlist for any BTS Beginner. It features songs from across many of their albums that you’ll want to know even if you can’t understand the lyrics. P.S. – go watch some of their music videos! The dancing and high production value is insane!

  • Marc’s Protest Songs Playlist

    I grew up in the 1960’s, and along with Gilligan’s Island, and Lost in Space on TV, came the great outpouring of empassioned frustration and anger from the youth in western societies stemming from the war in Vietnam, and from the big urban centers of Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Detroit and elsewhere, where people of color were crammed into the housing projects and the ghettos of these cities exploded onto the Nightly News with Chet Huntley and David Brinkley, having had enough of discrimination, white oppression, poverty, and unemployment.  It was a time of tumult, and civil disobedience the likes of which we hadn’t seen in this country until very recently.  What was different then from now, is the incredible outpouring of GREAT music, driven by the hearts and minds of some of America’s greatest songwriters.  The Protest Song became a staple on the transistor radios dotting the cities and accompanying the young people in the schools and on the streets.
    When Donald Trump was elected in 2016, the first thing I said was “Well, at least we’ll get some GREAT MUSIC from this experience.”  But I was to be disappointed.  Music had become more and more shallow, and less and less meaningful to me since then.  Some will argue that I don’t know what I’m talking about, and maybe they’re right.  But from my ‘lived experience’ I miss that cascade of expression from the most talented that we had to offer, giving voice to the voiceless, and pushing for change.  Today, there’s no shortage of pushing and shoving for change.  It’s just happening in often unproductive ways, and strains the bonds that hold us together.  So I have assembled a list of what I think are some of the greatest protest songs in my memory.  Not all of them echo from long lost AM radios of the 60’s, some of them more contemporary.  But all are as valid today as they once were.  Give a listen, and hear the echos of past struggles, and hopeful movement toward something better.  If the pen is mightier than the sword, then the Protest Song must have come from some of the heaviest artillery that were ever in the hands of Man.
