  • I just realized that Rod Stewart was singing about playing pool - not frying food

    For years and years since about 1971, I've been listening to "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart. Well, not every minute of these past 49 years but at least 500 times I've heard that song either on the radio or from my music collection. Not even my favorite Rod Stewart song but I've heard it probably the most out of the Rod Stewart songs on account of it being so popular and all. ("In A Broken Dream" is my favorite Rod Stewart song and he recorded it with a band that called themselves Python Lee Jackson). So anyway, I've heard the...

    I was just listening to Paul Brady's "Nothing but the Same Old Story" and I flashed on what's going on in the Catholic Church: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgaIAzWW2zc "Nothing But the Same Old Story" The lyrics have evocative lines: Paul Brady lyrics I'm thinking of a cri de coeur from a priest who entered the Catholic priesthood with the hope of holiness and an honest life for God, then got waylaid by the corruption at the top, the cynicism at the bottom, the scorn from all the worldly of the world--- thought about being a saint, himself, speaking out boldly, paying up personally...

    Happy Valentine's Day, a day on which we anglophones struggle under one of the worst burdens in a world which has otherwise blessed us: the word "love." The French for "love is amour, which rhymes with dozens of other useful words - toujours (always), jour (day), carrefour (crossroads), tambour (drum)...

    Author’s Note: This is a column I wrote back a few years ago but never published. Instead, it appeared in abbreviated form in my latest book, Letters to a Young Progressive. Given recent political trends, I thought it would be good to publish it in its original extended form. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the books of Ayn Rand. After escaping from the Soviet Union in the 1920s, Rand became a famous American playwright, philosopher, and novelist. She has written many books – three of which I would urge everyone to read. The first,...

    When you won it before, Couldn't look you in the eye, You're like a bad penny, Each win made me cry; You change like the weather, At the end of the world, I wish you'd stop spending, You're still f-ing spending; Cause you're a lib, You're a wacko, What the hell are you doin' there You don't belong there; I don't care if it hurts, I want fiscal control, I want a balanced budget, I want bums off the dole; I want you to notice, When it all falls down, You kept f-ing spending; You would not stop spending;...

    Recorded in Nashville, TN at Ocean Way Studios and produced by Grammy award winning engineer, Ben Fowler, Keep The Change addresses the clashing philosophies we encounter in our lives every day. What kind of people do we want to be? What kind of freedoms do we want to enjoy? The sound is drenched with soulful vocals, Wurlitzer electric piano, tasteful acoustic licks over a laid back drum beat. This song is sure to catch your ear and perhaps even encourage a dialogue about life's philosophies.

    Nicki Minaj, the first female solo artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 list at the same time, announced today the first set of dates for her “Pink Friday” concert tour. The 29-year-old Trinidad-born rapper, who now makes New York City her home, is perhaps best known for the bump and grind she performed this past February while sharing the stage with Madonna during the Super Bowl half time show. She was no less provocative last month in an appearance on ABC’s “Nightline” when she said that she contemplated killing her father when she was younger. In...

    I recently started hearing a piece of music on the 'Air 1" radio network, and I thought I'd share it with all of you fine folks on Free Republic. In recent days, we've had a lot of discouragement. Between the economy, gas prices, unemployment, and politicians who are either clueless or intentionally trying to destroy the country...it's easy to get depressed. I heard this song not too long ago called "We Won't Give Up" by a Christian rock group called The Afters. They said they wrote it as kind of a "sports style" song, the kind one might play to...
