It Ain't Chocolate Milk

So,that gusher is still gushing. Despite the best efforts of all the king's men, humpty oil rig cannot be put together again. I'm so outta sorts over this, I was going to put Rod Bernard's classic "This Could Go On Forever" to illustrate the lingering, maddening debacle of oil pumping unabated into our backyard. Yeah, that would have been a great marriage of song and situation....but then I realized the title is "This SHOULD Go On Forever" Not as appropriate. Still a great song, but not for right now.

Enter Van Broussard with Red Red Wine, for no other reason than it's a great song, and he's a great Louisiana singer. Van can kick off the Mother's Day weekend for us, and I'll try to think pleasant thoughts of distraction.

  1. It's an obvious song choice but how about Steve Forbert's OIL SONG? Unfortunately, he's had too many opportunities to update the lyrics to current situations over the thirty-some years since he first wrote and recorded it.
