Katy Perry
Chained to the Rhythm
On repeat, as recommended by the lyrics.
Haven't been this attached to a new tune since Stevie Wonder's "So What the Fuss".

"So here's how I'm going to use MY voice. I'm going to vote for Hillary Clinton." -- Katy Perry

I stopped there. I disagree with the politics of lots of entertainers. I also don't care what they think, since most of them DON'T think. I want them to look good, sing sweetly, and emote effectively. That's all I care about from them. I use their talents to improve my life. And ignore the rest.

YMMV.

YMMV.
When I disagree with entertainers, I boycott them. For instance, Liam Neeson is publicly anti-gun, even though almost every single one of his movies features him using one. Therefore, I refuse to support him in any way, which includes watching any movie that he has stared in. IMHO, so-called "celebrities" (businesses as well) should keep their opinions to themselves. Especially when that opinion has something to do with hot button issues such as politics or religion. That is, if they want to keep their current fan/customer base anyways.

This strategy has also hurt Target and Starbucks in recent months. Both businesses alienated a large swath of their customers and suffered the consequences of said customers refusing to do business with them.

Most people are stupid and forgetful, so this strategy doesn't always work in the long term and sometimes even backfires on the protesters (Chick fil a for example). It can however, have devastating effects in the short term. 40% stock downturns as well as CEO's stepping down are recent examples of that.

I agree though.....YMMV

I'm not sure why but recently this song has popped back into my life:

Elvira by the Oak Ridge Boys

"Giddyup, ahoompapaoompapah mow mow!"

I remember listening to this as a kid.  I find myself drawn to these older songs more and more lately.  (apologies to those that think this song isn't THAT old...)   :wub:

Flawless use of Lauryn Hill's timeless 'Ex-Factor' sample. Real nice!

what probably influenced me the most was the shooting instructor in fourth grade, he was a WW2 veteran and gave me a copy of To Hell and Back.   That might cause accusations of the school teacher in   All Quiet on the Western Front, it wasn't that way at all though. And then there was always the propaganda film Sands of Iwo Jima.  Louis L'amour helped out some too.

None of which I will repudiate now.

Even so.

 Best anti war book- Good bye to All That by Robert Graves.  Honorable mention, the Forgotten Soldier.

Best anti war movie besides the obvious ones - The Americanization of Emily
