Sunday Night Music Byte

Oh, what the heck, let’s have a triple feature with another performance from the Concert for Kampuchea.. The Concert for Kampuchea (subtitled “Rock for Kampuchea”) is a musical film from the best of the Concerts for the People of Kampuchea. The film was directed by Keith McMillan and was 4 nights of concerts in 1979 at Hammersmith Odeon to raise money for the victims of Pol Pot’s reign of terror in Cambodia. The event was organized by Paul McCartney and Kurt Waldheim (who was then Secretary-General of the U.N.), and it involved well-established artists such as McCartney, The Who and Queen as well as younger punk and new wave acts like The Clash and the Pretenders. The film finishes with the presentation of Wings’ Rockestra (more than 25 musicians playing together).

This is a video clip of Queen performing their song ’39.


Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 15

BREAKING NEWS:  Arizona Republican Congressman, Jeff Flake told CNN‘s Wolf Blitzer last week that the reason that he disappeared and spent a week on a deserted Pacific island last summer was because, “I’ve kind of felt like a pansy, I guess.” Let’s think this through, he felt like a pansy since leaving his ranch for Congress and to change his self perception he ran away from life and other people to spend a week on a tropical island? Sounds like a very macho plan. Running away is the Republican macho thing to do. How appropriate that his name is “Flake.”

THIS JUST IN:  Rush Limbaugh’s bid to become the owner of the NFL’s St. Louis Rams has abruptly ended now that the main figure of the ownership group, Dave Checketts (who also owns the NHL’s St. Louis Blues) has banished Limbaugh from the group. Now that Limbaugh has the blues, perhaps he should seek an ownership interest in Checkett’s hockey franchise.

BREAKING NEWS:  Now that Maine Republican Senator Olympia Snowe has broken ranks with her party by voting in favor of the Senate Finance Committee version of the health care reform bill, how long will it take for Republicans and conservatives to start saying that , “she was never really a Republican anyway”? Let’s hope that the castigation starts soon so that Snowe may perhaps take the Specter route and switch parties. The Democrats will then enlarge their majority without waiting for the next election.

THIS JUST IN:  Gallup’s most recent poll regarding the popularity of well known politicians reveals that Alaska’s former quitting ex-governor Sarah Palin’s popularity has sunk to a new low of 40%. That figure is well below the magical 50 % believed to be required to launch a successful campaign. Here’s to you, Sarah, you’ve come a long way, baby.

BREAKING NEWS:  In preparation for his Playgirl Magazine photo-shoot, former, future Sarah Palin son-in-law, Levi Johnston is dieting on moose meat. I know that there is a joke in there somewhere, but I just cannot think of one at the moment.

THIS JUST IN:  Meghan McCain (daughter of failed Republican presidential nominee, John McCain) was out with the girls on Twitter last week and made quite an impression.

BREAKING NEWS:  Reverend Al Sharpton is preparing to file a defamation of character lawsuit against comedian Rush Limbaugh. In an op-ed published in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal Limbaugh writes Sharpton “played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews ‘diamond merchants’) and 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riot.” Sharpton disagrees and plans to challenge Limbaugh in court. Regardless of the merits of the case, the deposition testimony should be riveting.

(sung to the Village People song “Y-M-C-A”)

Sarah, there’s no need to feel down
I said, Sarah, just because you’re a clown
I said, Sarah, a smile isn’t a frown
There’s no need to be unhappy.

Sarah, you lost a race with McCain
I said, Sarah, you flushed him right down the drain
And you messed up all of your interviews
But you’re still on the nightly news

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

We’ll have such a good time when you fall on your face,
And we’ll revel in your disgrace…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You will have SarahPac, and a new running mate
To help spread Politics of Hate…

Sarah, are you listening to me?
I said, Sarah, you’ll have to go on TV
I said, Sarah, I’m sure we’ll laugh till we pee
And you’ve got to know this one thing!

You make a big ass of yourself
Every time that you open your mouth
You give ammo, to our friend Tina Fey
She just repeats the things you say…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You’ll get all of the votes from the states that are red
But, the G.O.P. is now dead…

We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at you in 2-0-1-2

You can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, you’ll need a fork cuz you’re done…

Sarah, you’ll have a case of the blues
I said, Sarah, has no grasp of world views
But that’s OK, cuz she amuses us,
As we throw her under the bus…

That’s when she will realize that,
Her future, is modeling for “Arctic Cat”
Maybe she’ll host a reality show
If they pay her with enough dough.

We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2

She can wink and then blink, and twit everyone,
But, she’ll need a fork cuz she’s done…

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll wear a big frown
Sarah, Sarah to us you are a clown

2-0-1-2
We’ll all laugh at her in 2-0-1-2
Sarah, Sarah you’ll have a case of the blues
Sarah, Sarah I said, why don’t you just go vamoos.
