    We've played with DAC a few times over the past three decades as an opening act. Mofo's crazy a hell. Similar to Artimus Pyle when hammered.

    They are funny as hell to be around after shows when loads of good looking females hover all over them and we all get to sign autographs on their various body parts. LOL

    It's truly unbelievable that they are also humble as hell when with friends and the cameras are off.

    Do you think Stevie Wonder could even point out Africa on a map? Why did Michael Jackson get to record his part separately from the others? I have so many questions about this problematic 80's production.

    Can we cancel/impeach dead people?

    Famous Boomer Singers - We Are the World

    Famous Boomer Singers - We Are the World (1985)



    "We Are The World"
    (performed by USA For Africa)

    There comes a time when we heed a certain call
    When the world must come together as one
    There are people dying
    And it's time to lend a hand to life
    The greatest gift of all

    We can't go on pretending day by day
    That someone somewhere will soon make a change
    We're all a part of God's great big family
    And the truth, you know
    Love is all we need

    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So, let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares
    And their lives will be stronger and free
    As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
    And so we all must lend a helping hand

    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So, let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    When you're down and out
    There seems no hope at all
    But if you just believe
    There's no way we can fall
    Well, well, well
    Let's realize that a change can only come
    When we stand together as one

    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So, let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me
    [Repeat with ad-libs until the end]

    Bob Dylan - Tangled Up In Blue

    Bob Dylan - Tangled Up In Blue (1975)



    "Tangled Up In Blue"

    Early one morning the sun was shining
    I was laying in bed
    Wondering if she'd changed at all
    If her hair was still red
    Her folks they said our lives together
    Sure was gonna be rough
    They never did like mama's homemade dress
    Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough
    And I was standing on the side of the road
    Rain falling on my shoes
    Heading out for the East Coast
    Lord knows I've paid some dues
    Getting through
    Tangled up in blue.

    She was married when we first met
    Soon to be divorced
    I helped her out of a jam I guess
    But I used a little too much force
    We drove that car as far as we could
    Abandoned it out West
    Split up on a dark sad night
    Both agreeing it was best
    She turned around to look at me
    As I was walking away
    I heard her say over my shoulder
    "We'll meet again someday
    on the avenue"
    Tangled up in blue.

    I had a job in the great north woods
    Working as a cook for a spell
    But I never did like it all that much
    And one day the ax just fell
    So I drifted down to New Orleans
    so I lucky was to be employed
    Working for a while on a fishing boat
    Right outside of Delacroix
    But all the while I was alone
    The past was close behind
    I seen a lot of women
    But she never escaped my mind
    And I just grew
    Tangled up in blue.

    She was working in a topless place
    And I stopped in for a beer
    I just kept looking at the side of her face
    In the spotlight so clear
    And later on when the crowd thinned out
    I was just about to do the same
    She was standing there in back of my chair
    Said to me, "Don't I know your name?"
    I muttered something underneath my breath
    She studied the lines on my face
    I must admit I felt a little uneasy
    When she bent down to tie the laces
    Of my shoe
    Tangled up in blue.

    She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
    "I thought you'd never say hello," she said,
    "You look like the silent type."
    Then she opened up a book of poems
    And handed it to me
    Written by an Italian poet
    From the thirteenth century
    And every one of them words rang true
    And glowed like burning coal
    Pouring off of every page
    Like it was written in my soul
    From me to you
    Tangled up in blue

    I lived with them on Montague street
    In a basement down the stairs
    There was music in the cafés at night
    And revolution in the air
    Then he started into dealing with slaves
    And something inside of him died
    She had to sell everything she owned
    And froze up inside
    And when it finally the bottom fell out
    I became withdrawn
    The only thing I knew how to do
    Was to keep on keeping on
    Like a bird that flew
    Tangled up in blue.

    So now I'm going back again
    I got to get to her somehow
    All the people we used to know
    They're an illusion to me now
    Some are mathematicians
    Some are carpenter's wives
    Don't know how it all got started
    I don't know what they do with their lives
    But me I'm still on the road
    A-heading for another joint
    We always did feel the same
    We just saw it from a different point
    Of view
    Tangled up in blue.
