Star Spangled Music

Posted: 06/04/2014 in Screwed

Other than the usual patriotic crap, I generally don’t care all that much for our national anthem.  I realize that it’s not supposed to be a populist ditty that everyone can sing, but, still, I’m just not that impressed with the music.  Or at least I wasn’t.  Apparently, I just hadn’t heard it properly arranged before.

I guess even I can learn something occasionally.  Like when Aretha Franklin sat down at the piano to thank Harvard for giving her a Doctor of Arts degree last week.  Of course, the honorary degree might have been more impressive if they hadn’t given one to G. W. Bush at the same time, but at least we all know she deserved it.

Be seeing you.
