    Longtime readers know that Boney M and I go way back.

    For some reason I couldn’t get this song out of my head last night.

    The words are from Psalms 137:1:

    By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

    Which continues:

    If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let...

    Just what the Obama campaign needed to reestablish its seriousness after as series of unserious campaign themes, like Big Bird, Binders and Bayonets.

    A new music star-studded video to the theme FORWARD.

    Bruce Springsteen is all in for Obama again:

    We have featured The Iveys before to a very good reader reaction.

    The band members are the cousins of LI reader, photographer (also, here, here) and West Texas correspondent Danelle, who also happens to be one of the first to email me whenever I get a national media reference, usually in real time.

    This one hurts.  I grew up knowing so many of the Bee Gees early songs by heart.

    The New York Mining Disaster 1941 was one of my favorites, and one of the most underappreciated:

    Robin Gibb passed away today. He will be missed.

    From Rolling Stone:
