Any Major Orange

October 20th, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

There is a saying that when the USA catches a cold, the world catches the ‘flu. Economically that may be true, but these days, when the USA catches Covid-19, the world shakes its head and says: “These clown are even crazier than we are.”

US voters will go to the polls in a couple of weeks’ time with an opportunity to get rid of the spraypainted blustermachine of venom and lies which has turned their country into an international laughing stock. And that is of vital interest to the world as well, because a United States that is run sensibly and with something approaching ethics (which, granted, it is only about 30% of the time) is better for the world than one that is so weak that it empowers Russia and China, and so hate-filled that it emboldens Nazis everywhere.

And while they are at it, US voters should also send packing those craven and spineless reptiles in the Houses of Congress who have enabled that racist, women-sexually-assaulting, truth-destroying, hatemongering, psychopathically misanthropic sphincter-mouth in the White House. Do it for your country, and do it for the world. And if you think others will do it for you because Biden has such a great lead: remember 2016!

And all this leads us into the Any Major Orange mix. A random mix (and aren’t they sometimes the best?) of songs that somehow riff on the theme of orange.

As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R, and includes an orange cover. PW in comments, where you might like to add “Orange Songs” to the list.

And, for the sake of love, vote that madman out of office!

    Thanks. Yeah, a hacker attack. With the help of good people on Facebook I was able to get the thing going again.

    Sorry I didn’t see this until after Election Day, but I had put my ballot for Biden in the dropbox weeks earlier anyway.

    As for orange songs, there’s “Orange Coloured Sun” by the underrated Pierce Turner.

    Just finished listening to the mix – I love how it’s kind of all over the place. I really liked the tracks from EWF, the Lemon Pipers, The Trash Can Sinatras, Bright Eyes. I liked “Orange Knickers” but I’m not sure why LOL The Sesame Street song is now firmly stuck in my head – and of course Johnny Cash and Nat King Cole are two of my faves. So glad you are back, and that a certain is on his way OUT.

    There were supposed to be emojis there after “certain” – one of them was the poo emoji, so you know who I was talking about XD

    Thank you. All-over-the-place is pretty much how one might describe half of my mixes.
