February 21, 2017 on Win George Harrison’s Career-Spanning The Vinyl Collection Box Set + Expanded Edition Memoir
For those who think Gaga didn't make a political statement - Mike Pence on site, millions of conservatives watching and she sang this. "Rejoice and love yourself today / 'Cause baby, you were born this way No matter gay, straight or bi / Lesbian, transgendered life I'm on the right track, baby / I was born to survive No matter black, white or beige / Chola or orient made I'm on the right track, baby / I was born to be brave " ✨ She also sang the opening to "This Land Is Your Land" but if you look up the full lyrics.. "In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people / By the relief office I seen my people / As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking / Is this land made for you and me? Nobody living can ever stop me, / As I go walking that freedom highway / Nobody living can ever make me turn back / This land was made for you and me."

SERIOUSLY!!! How can you have (the excellent) A Seat at the Table, without giving huge props to Blood Orange's Freetown Sound?! For me, Freetown Sound is a little more filled out, and even more powerful and gorgeous than Solange's masterpiece

Ugh I'm a wreck. As a Canadian he's been part of my dad's Sunday listening habits for as long as I can remember. Such a treasure Leonard Cohen was fond of saying "I feel that more and more we're invited to make ourselves strong and cheerful. .... I think that it was Ben Jonson who said, I have studied all the theologies and all the philosophies, but cheerfulness keeps breaking through." Im no optimist but maybe it will help you

Sorry to be predictable but Low is an effing masterpiece I still find it emotionally staggering that Bowie winked back at "New Career in a New Town" on his last song on his last album I can't give everything away indeed

I've seen all of the footage and I honestly don't believe these were bad shows - like if Manson fucked with the sound guy and fell off the stage i'd consider it a huge treat

I might be just reading surface level but to me it's the work of the patriarchy who spends billions razing the land to suit their infinite demands, whether it's blood diamonds or the tar sands - this is the work of a system that's threatening the very survival of the human race

Wow. This is exquisite. I don't suppose we know if it's Alejandro singing or not? My guess is not, he's more of a producer/wizard behind the boards but.. imagine if it was Also. Such a babe *swoon* - very excited for this new record
