I guess it might sound odd for me to say this, given my recent post, but I LOVE politically oriented songs--those of Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, the Chad Mitchell Trio, etc., even the rare Kingston Trio song. I play and sing them frequently. But it occurs to me that talking about those songs is a LOT different from talking about the politics that inspired them, or the politics and politicians who are in today's headlines. Why the distinction matters isn't clear to me, except that talking about specific people these days raises all kinds of red flags that I would rather not raise on this forum.
So...sorry I incited whatever concerns I did. Now back to the music.
