Yeah, swing and boogie just makes me want to dance!
I just came across this one, never had heard it before:

Why does Trump talk so much about "fake news"? Says Trump:
"You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you."
He's just covering his own ass.

This music video is brilliant. I'm not even a fan of hiphop

Here is an article I found interesting on why this video is effective and disturbing. It hijacks our brains.

... The scientist Vittorio Gallese, who was part of the team of researchers who discovered mirror neurons, describes kinesthetic empathy as “involuntary and automatic.” Therein lies the dilemma for viewers of “This Is America,” who might recoil at the chaos and yet feel a strong impulse to dance anyway. One man, recording his reaction, summed up this tension when he remarked: “I’m lowkey scared of him right now. But I have to bop my head.”

This kind of empathy means viewers cannot, really, just be passive observers. The video’s juxtaposition of carefree dancing with carnage and disorder, the vacillation between the gospel-Afrobeat hybrid and the harsher, sparse rap reflects the discord in the audience’s bodies, our faces perhaps displaying discomfort while our bodies betray us. In doing so, “This Is America” perverts the positive potential of dance’s collective nature, taking it from something celebratory to something far more disturbing that implicates us all.

I was just about to post that video, just because of how much conversation it is starting (and the fact that it is an amazing song).

I'm going back to "electronica" lately.  Tangerine Dreams is great.  No words to get in the way of the music...  Real headset stuff.  If I want lyrics, I go back to Simon&Garfunkle or Bob Dylan.

The instrumentation and power is good.  I would like someone speaking real words though, LOL!
