Frank Zappa – More Trouble Every Day (Live in 1974)

Zappa wrote this after spending some time¬†watching coverage of the Watts riots in 1965. 49 years later, it’s still too relevant. Way too relevant. Advertisements

Peter Gabriel – Games Without Frontiers (music video)

“Games Without Frontiers” was released in 1980 on Peter Gabriel’s self titled solo record. It was the first top ten hit in the UK for Gabriel.

I wouldn’t go that far, but I will say that it’s probably my favorite Talking Heads song. It’s a pick me up song. And it was the second single off […]
