    And this one is definitely also on my list of "best songs ever"... )

    I pictured a rainbow
    You held it in your hands
    I had flashes
    But you saw the plan
    I wandered out in the world for years
    While you just stayed in your room
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    You were there in the turnstiles
    With the wind at your heels
    You stretched for the stars
    And you know how it feels
    To reach too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon

    I was grounded
    While you filled the skies
    I was dumbfounded by truth
    You cut through lies

    I saw the rain dirty valley
    You saw Brigadoon
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon

    I spoke about wings
    You just flew
    I wondered I guessed and I tried
    You just knew
    I sighed
    But you swooned
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    With a torch in your pocket
    And the wind at your heels
    You climbed on the ladder
    And you know how it feels
    To get too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    Unicorns and cannonballs
    Palaces and piers
    Trumpets towers and tenements
    Wide oceans full of tears
    Flags rags ferryboats
    Scimitars and scarves
    Every precious dream and vision
    Underneath the stars

    Yes you climbed on the ladder
    With the wind in your sails
    You came like a comet
    Blazing your trail
    Too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon

    Today is the 11th of September, 2015, and as such, it has been 14 years since the George W. Bush administration finalized the last step into turning the United States of America into a fascist regime. This next song however — from one of my most favorite bands — already dates back to 1988, but I only first heard it a few years ago, during Toto's 2012 reunion tour (with Joseph Williams on vocals again), which was intended as a tribute to Toto's recently departed bass player Mike Porcaro, who had already been diagnosed with ALS at the time.

    Without knowing that this song was already written and recorded in the late 1980s, I immediately got the impression that it was about what G.W. Bush and his cronies had done to the US. Therefore, as an apt consolation for my US American friends, this wonderful song.

    Every thing's gonna be alright boys
    Help is on the way
    Hold your head up high now
    There's no need to cry now
    We're not running anymore

    Leave the politics behind boys
    They're not working anymore
    There's so much more at stake here
    It's make or break here
    Haven't we been here before
    Tell me what we're waiting for

    Gotta remember
    You don't have to be afraid
    You still have the freedom to learn
    And say what you want to say
    Gotta remember
    Don't let 'em take away
    The land we call the home of the brave

    Who sings the song of the people
    You don't hear it anymore
    I heard it late last summer
    To the beat of a different drummer
    It never sounded quite like this before

    So you're trying to shake this feeling
    That trouble's right outside the door
    You lie awake each dark night
    Like a time bomb wound up too tight
    A storm in waiting, just offshore
    Tell me what we're waiting for

    Gotta remember
    You don't have to be afraid
    You still have the freedom to learn
    And say what you want to say
    Gotta remember
    Don't let 'em take away
    The land we call the home of the brave

    Gotta remember
    You don't have to be afraid
    You still have the freedom to learn
    And say what you want to say
    Gotta remember
    Don't let 'em take away
    The land we call the home of the brave

    Wake up kids
    We've got the dreamers disease
    Age 14 we got you down on your knees
    So polite, you're busy still saying please
    Frienemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
    Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
    First we run, and then we laugh 'til we cry

    But when the night is falling
    You cannot find the light
    You feel your dreams are dying
    Hold tight

    You've got the music in you
    Don't let go
    You've got the music in you
    One dance left
    This world is gonna pull through
    Don't give up
    You've got a reason to live
    Can't forget
    We only get what we give

    I'm comin' home baby
    You're tops
    Give it to me now

    Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
    We're flat broke
    But hey we do it in style
    The bad rich
    God's flying in for your trial

    But when the night is falling
    You cannot find a friend (friend)
    You feel your tree is breaking
    Just then

    You've got the music in you
    Don't let go
    You've got the music in you
    One dance left
    This world is gonna pull through
    Don't give up
    You've got a reason to live
    Can't forget
    We only get what we give

    This whole damn world could fall apart
    You'll be ok, follow your heart
    You're in harms way, I'm right behind
    Now say you're mine

    You've got the music in you
    Don't let go
    You've got the music in you
    One dance left
    This world is gonna pull through
    Don't give up
    You've got a reason to live
    Can't forget
    We only get what we give

    Don't let go
    I feel the music in you
    Don't let go
    Fly high
    What's real, can't die
    You only get what you give
    You are gonna get what you give
    Don't give up
    Just don't be afraid to leave
    Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
    Fake computer crashes dining
    Cloning while they're multiplying
    Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
    Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
    You're all fakes
    Run to your mansions
    Come around
    We'll kick your ass in
    Don't let go
    One dance left
    Don't give up
    Can't forget

    Another oldie but a goodie.

    Guess who just got back today
    Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
    Haven't changed that much to say
    But man, I still think them cats are crazy

    They were askin' if you were around
    How you was, where you could be found
    Told 'em you were livin' downtown
    Drivin' all the old men crazy

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town again)

    You know that chick that used to dance a lot
    Every night she'd be on the floor, shakin' what she got
    When I say she was cool she was red hot
    I mean, she was steamin'

    And that time over at Johnny's place,
    Well, this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
    Man, we just fell about the place
    If that chick don't want to know, forget her

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)
    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town again)

    Spread the word around
    Guess who's back in town

    Just spread the word around

    Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
    Down at Dino's Bar 'n' Grill
    The drink will flow and the blood will spill
    And if the boys want to fight, you better let 'em

    That jukebox in the corner blastin' out my favorite song
    The nights are getting longer, it won't be long
    Won't be long till the summer comes
    Now that the boys are here again

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)

    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town)
    Spread the word around
    The boys are back in town
    (The boys are back in town again)

    The boys are back in town again
    Been hangin' down at Dino's
    The boys are back in town again

    Here's an oldie from back in my youth...

    You told me I was the one
    The only one who got your head undone
    And for a while I believed the line that you spun

    But I've been looking at you
    Looking closely at the things you do
    I didn't see it the way you wanted me to

    How how howzat
    You messed about
    I caught you out
    Howzat
    Now that I found where you're at
    It's goodbye
    Well howzat
    It's goodbye

    You only came for a smile
    Even though you're really not my style
    I didn't think that you'd run me 'round
    Like you do

    How how howzat
    You messed about
    I caught you out
    Howzat
    Now that I found where you're at
    It's goodbye
    Well howzat
    It's goodbye
    Aha
    O yeah, oh yeah

    Well I've been looking at you
    (I'll tell you what I see)
    Looking closely at the things you do
    (No you can't fool me)
    I didn't see it the way you wanted me to

    How how howzat
    You messed about
    I caught you out
    Howzat
    Now that I found where you're at
    It's goodbye

    Howzat
    You messed about
    I caught you out
    Howzat
    Now that I found where you're at
    It's goodbye
    Well howzat
    Goodbye
    Oh yeah, oh yeah

    Here's arguably one of the most influential guitarists of the past four decades.

    This is 1990s-era Van Halen, with Sammy Hagar on vocals, after their original singer David Lee Roth chose to embark on a solo career. Both of these songs are from their For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge album, which was a dummy title, because the band wanted to name the album after the initials of that phrase. (It's a great album, though. )

    I met this guy back in 1993, and no, it's not a trick. He really is completely ambidextrous.

    Somebody showed me this video, telling me that he had met his soulmate and couldn't get this music out of his head. I understand now, and wish them both a lot of happiness...

    There is always a perfect match, hey?
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    Why did we ever come so far?
    I knew I'd seen it all before
    Tall buildings reach up in vain
    Tinseltown is in the rain

    I know now love was so exciting

    Tinseltown in the rain
    Oh men and women
    Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

    One day this love will all blow over
    Time for leaving the parade
    Is there a place in this city
    A place to always feel this way

    And hey, there's a red car in the fountain

    Tinseltown in the rain
    Oh men and women
    Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

    Do I love you? Yes I love you
    Will we always be happy go lucky?
    Do I love you? Yes I love you

    But it's easy come, and it's easy go
    All this talking is only bravado, yeah

    Oh, Tinseltown

    Tinseltown in the rain
    Oh men and women
    Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

    Tinseltown in the rain
    Oh men and women
    Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

    Tinseltown is in the rain
    Tinseltown is in the rain
    Tinseltown is in the rain
    Tinseltown is in the rain

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Do I love you? Yes I love you
    Will we always be happy go lucky?
    Do I love you? Yes I love you

    But it's easy come, and it's easy go
    All this talking, talking is only bravado

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Tinseltown is in the rain
    Tinseltown is in the rain
    Tinseltown is in the rain

    I step off the train
    I'm walking down your street again
    And past your door
    But you don't live there anymore

    It's years since you've been there
    Now you've disappeared somewhere
    Like outer space
    You've found some better place

    And I miss you
    Like the deserts miss the rain

    Could you be dead?
    You always were two steps ahead
    Of everyone
    We'd walk behind while you would run

    I look up at your house
    And I can almost hear you shout
    Down to me
    Where I always used to be

    And I miss you
    Like the deserts miss the rain

    Back on the train
    I ask why did I come here
    Can I confess
    I've been hanging around your old address?

    And the years have proved
    To offer nothing since you moved
    You're long gone
    But I can't move on

    And I miss you
    Like the deserts miss the rain

    I step off the train
    I'm walking down your street again
    And past your door
    I guess you don't live there anymore

    It's years since you've been there
    Now you've disappeared somewhere
    Like outer space
    You've found some better place

    And I miss you
    Like the deserts miss the rain

    And I miss you
    Like the deserts miss the rain (deserts miss the rain)
