    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    I was wondering if any of the old Songfacts gang (you know who you are) checks in to the site much these days. Every once in while I come back searching for you guys but come up empty. It was a vibrant and crazy place when we all joined close to 15 years ago and it remained that way for a long time. Frankly I miss it. If any of you stop by, leave a comment. I'd love to know how you guys are doing. RonJonSurfer (Ron)

    Hi All ! I haven;t been here for a long time, mostly because I'm still fairly computer illiterate and I have trouble negotiating the Site. It's good to see some of my great Mates here. Hope you all had a happy Christmas and have a wonderful 2019. Here's a photo of my whole Family taken on Christmas Day. I'm at the back - now OLD 78.

    I didn't join 15 years ago, but I do my best to *bump* the "All Things Music" subset. Ever since Last.fm terminated all forums and fan posts, I've been hanging out here to see if there is "Life on Mars." (It seems to be very sparse.) Folks in search of Music on the Interweb don't have many choices these days, between "Buy 'N Large" (Apple) or "We Think You Like This?" (Spotify). For really obscure music, I sometimes drop by CD Baby, if a "Toy Cows in Africa"-like track catches my eye/ear on YouTube. So now I travel the "Roads to Moscow" while "Dancing in the Moonlight," on the way to "Scarborough Fair.";) Patrick Abe

    Y'all thought you'd got rid of me But my life is meaningless without my Fin and Farin. Coming back here reminds me of all our time together, and makes me a bit sad. I don't know where they are (or even if they're still alive???) but I hope they're happy. (Joined at 17, now 32 and living a life i never imagined for myself !)

    Thanks Ange. I'm like an Australian Abraham Lincoln - the father of his country. Nice pic of you and your Grandson. Hi to a lot of 'old' friends whom I see have posted recently, Dear Edna, Laurie, Carole, Tim, Ken..... special congratulations to you. I also saw EYEgor drop in briefly. Had to get my DVD of Young Frankenstein and watch it again. Hilarious. Pity that most of the actors in it are deceased.

    I miss you, Fishies...

    I miss all of you fishies too.... It just isn't the same anymore, but I still do stop in from time to time. I miss talking about the music, songs, artists that we love and learning about new stuff from other fishies. The laughs, jokes, etc....I find that Facebook is starting to bore me. I try to post videos, quotes, songs etc... on Facebook and get very little response...Always could count on Songfacts for some good discussions and such..

    Why does music move us?

    How sad it is to think that there are Human Beings that actually don't like some form of music,it seems almost impossible because music is universal and with so many forms that some toe tapping must surely be going on!

    Tom Petty dead at 66

    His tour came through my parts a few months ago. The next morning, I saw some young people in T-shirts from the show as I was getting my bagel. I asked them how it was, and they went on for quite a while about how amazing it was. Artists like Springsteen and The Rolling Stones have plenty of young fans, but the older ones take all the oxygen. Petty was accessible, constantly moving forward while honoring the past in a way that didn't feel like nostalgia. Here's what I posted on our Facebook page this morning. Almost hit send on it yesterday when the story first broke, but got the news that he was still on life support. Petty wrote from personal experience, but made it our experience. "Refugee" is about feeling trapped, which is how his record company made him feel at the time; "American Girl" is about longing for something more out of life, with his hometown of Gainesville, Florida as the backdrop. After someone burned his house down in 1987, he wrote one of his most personal songs, "I Won't Back Down," which he thought was "too obvious" when he wrote it. What's obvious now is that it's a powerful and sincere anthem of resilience. He was known for his integrity in standing up for the artists and fans against the corporate money grabbers. When his label, MCA, tried to make Hard Promises the first major album priced at $9.98 (going rate was $8.98), Petty dug in his heels, threatening to name the album "$8.98" if they tried. Tom Petty used his powers for good. He hosted a fantastic show on Sirius/XM called "Tom Petty's Buried Treasure," which he curated with hidden gems, making for some very satisfying discovery in a way no algorithm could. He championed the human element in music, which is especially acute in his 2002 song "The Last DJ." Released at a time when corporate radio was shushing local voices so they could save money by piping the same transmission to multiple stations, the song made it clear to those voices (this writer included) that someone still cared. His music videos were groundbreaking, and they still hold up. Often surreal ("Don't Come Around Here No More") and always entertaining, they earned him an MTV Video Vanguard Award in 1994. Many of his videos started with him opening a book to reveal the story. He and the Heartbreakers recently wrapped up their 40th (!) anniversary tour. It was triumphant, with an audience that crossed generations, united by the music. Millennials aren't all into EDM and the squiggly sounds of today's hits - many love classic rock. Petty was one the last really accessible rockers on the top tier. You'll see many young people with T-shirts from that tour because they could afford to go with money left over for the merch tent. Petty had both personal genius and the ability to find and nurture top talent. The Heartbreakers are an incredible band, with two members, Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, around from the start (actually, even earlier - they with Petty in Mudcrutch). When Petty was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, it was with his band. Outside of the Heartbreakers, Petty also collaborated with the best and brightest. Along with Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and George Harrison, he was in the Traveling Wilburys. Dave Stewart of Eurythmics co-wrote "Don't Come Around Here No More"; Stevie Nicks wanted to BE a Heartbreaker. Expect a deluge of well-deserved tributes.

    Song/Video of the day

    Thirty years ago, Kelly DeLima formed "Kapena," a "Brownbags to Stardom" contest Kaimuki high school band that went on to bigger and better things. Brothers Tivaini and Teimomi Tatofi returned to Tonga to start families, and Kelly eventually got his kids to play. A reunion happened recently, and local music program "Hi Sessions" recaptured that old Reggae magic. Who/what is "Kapena"? What is "Masese" about? So, what else did Kapena do?

    A non-partisan discussion. I was just reading how The Stones and Elton John recent fired off severe objections to using their songs in a campaign. So in researching the subject, I ran across this ... Technically speaking, copyright laws allow political candidates to use just about any song they want, as long as they're played at a stadium, arena or other venue that already has a public-performance license through a songwriters' association such as ASCAP or BMI. However, the law contains plenty of gray area. If a candidate refuses to stop using a song in this scenario, an artist may be able to protect his "right of publicity" โ€“ Springsteen's voice blaring over a loudspeaker is part of his image, and he has a right to protect his own image. "It's untested in the political realm," says Lawrence Iser, an intellectual-property lawyer who has represented the Beatles, Michael Jackson and many others. "Even if Donald Trump has the ASCAP right to use a Neil Young song, does Neil have the right to nevertheless go after him on right of publicity? I say he does." http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/why-politicians-keep-using-songs-without-artists-permission-20150709?page=2 I agree. Because if it was my song, I would want to protect what it it used to "represent" or "promote". E.G. If I was opposed to alcohol consumption, say on a deep and personal level, not just a simply objection, an all out loathe the practice, say, than I wouldn't want my song used in a Beer commercial or a Scotch ad. I say that's a justifiable objection. Well a political candidate can certainly strike a similar chord with an artist. What do you think?

    OK, it's a blizzard. They've changed projections around here to 24-30 inches of snow. I'm just outside of New York City, so expect to hear about major problems in the Big Apple. Right now I've got power, food and booze...I'm good.
