The Official January 20th InaugurationSetlistVision thread


Recommended Posts

I liked the Ga Ga version of the National Anthem. Can't be bothered with the full show. I imagine a lot of songs with their original meanings forgotten shoehorned into an event they really bear little relevance to and the whole thing turning into a shallow celebration of celebrity culture. I prefer the way we do it in the UK.

What, a minister who gets driven to a Royal Palace for a cup of tea and a natter with an unelected and hereditary monarch?

 

Hmmm.

Whatever. I just meant that mixing popular culture with government / state events always looks a bit naff to me.  Same as when people have their favourite song played at their funeral. Distracts from the gravity of the event.  It's just..well..naff.

Imaginative choice. Must still have writer's block. 

I still have very mixed feelings about the performance yesterday. Of course, to see our hero playing there makes me proud, but on the other hand I doubt in 2021 Bruce Springsteen will be as relevant in American society as he was in 2001. I hope to touch some of those doubts in another topic

Apparently Bruce gets a free pass for not wearing a mask on federal property

Yo, doc...performances and speeches are exempt from the mandate. None of the people speaking or performing at the inaugural wore masks during their speeches or performances.

Hmmm.

Are you referencing the UK's PM's weekly audiences with HM ?

I think all MPs have referenced at some points the positives of those meetings, a sounding board with a lifetime of diplomatic experience with 100% confidentially guarented 

And US presidents lap up the regal treatment when they go on state visits to the UK 

Meanwhile our PM is wetting her pants in anticipation of an invitation to the white house

Bruce is very relevant.  It amazes me how many young people know about him now and think very highly of him.

If he was a NZer we would label him a national treasure

Ha! yeah - AND he's found the bloody bottle of hair dye at the back of the cupboard and gone overboard! - looks ridiculous - the way he had it of late (and in the documentary) with grey coming thru was FAR better! 

I thought it was the lighting

Anyone else reminded of Willie Nelson's voice on that one?

Yes, but that's not at all a bad thing

Because coronavirus can distinguish between performers and regular people.  Trust in the science.
