With all the apparent ills and impending doom in this world, our worst enemy can be paralyzing fear. At some point, the symptom becomes the disease. It has afflicted me of late. Lucinda Williams sings a song on her latest that helps heal my wounded weary soul.

Friday’s Jukebox early…
Last week’s theme sank like a stone….time to give imitation a shot.
Part of this week’s theme is from an old Guardian “readers recommend” list – they have hundreds. (extra points for not using that as a crutch).
Or post any song that you can’t keep out of your head…
Betty Wright: “The [...]
Part or whole, end or beginning, slice or dice it. Only connect… !
Saturday Update – I see that in trying to get in “the whole wide world”, I have violated the law of “list” threads:
the narrower the topic, the easier it is to think of music about it. I have made this [...]
We’ll start off with the ladies…

OK, Agonistas- this week has been beyond horrible- every single story of ours since the last Jukebox, every news outlet, every blog site – look at them, look at us! Sometimes that world’s just too much to take nonstop.
So though the regular Jukebox usually kicks in on Saturday, a special early one to help [...]
Just to get it out of the way… Word Crimes – Weird Al
Rules this week: – The first ten comments will have the music embedded- after that, probably not-we’ll see how the thread loads. Trying to determine whether any additional appeal of embed justifies effort. Editors’ posts will be left however they submit them.
– Any ranting at other’s music choices will be expunged.:-). . After all [...]
