Plus Bruce Springsteen, Tunng, Hayden Thorpe, and a Wrap-up of the Week’s Other Notable New Tracks

Sep 25, 2020

Welcome to the 38th Songs of the Week of 2020. This was the week where those on the left mourned the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and worried about the future of the Supreme Court, as her dying wish to have her replacement be appointed by the next president was ignored by hypocritical Republicans who blocked President Obama’s Supreme Court pick because it was an election year. Meanwhile America reached the sad milestone of 200,000 COVID-19 deaths, there was no justice for Breonna Taylor, and President Trump strongly suggested that he may not leave office peacefully if Biden wins.  More

Welcome to the 34th Songs of the Week of 2020. The Republican National Convention was this week, in which President Trump and his party attempted to convince the country that if Joe Biden and the Democrats take over it will be a lawless land with a defunded police and riots in every city (um…no, that won’t happen). In a nomination acceptance speech on the White House lawn (which was a breach of protocol), complete with fireworks and an opera singer, Trump tried to pull one over on America that he has handled the coronavirus well (um…no, that hasn’t happened).  More
