Monday Music Break - Life During Wartime




Word on the street has it that David Byrne of the Talking Heads saw the 1997 interview on 60 Minutes with former Weather Underground member Matthew Landy Steen and was inspired to write this song. It's about someone living in hiding in the radical underground, dressing in disguises and keeping one step ahead of the law.

Aside from that, it's also a really great song!

FW,
You doing okay?
My MD called and I have a high PSA - seeing a urologist in the am.
What is will be what is...

I had a high PSA myself, but it went down. My doc says that it can fluctuate quite a bit and still be "normal".
I'm doing okay, but it's hard to get back into the blogging. I must be slowing down in my old age...
Good luck on the doctor visit.

That was 1977. And it was anti-climatic in a way. Still alive and busy doing above ground work. You don't need a weatherman . . . mls

I find this more fitting for Weatherman (via Seinfeld): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVC2E7S027I
