John Mellencamp, Mozart, Ravi Shankar: My Music, December 20, 2016

J.M.W. Turner, The Slave Ship (1840). Oil on canvas. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Good morning.

5:00. John Mellencamp, Pink Houses

Well there’s a young man in a T-shirt
Listenin’ to a rock ‘n’ roll station
He’s got a greasy hair, greasy smile
He says: “Lord, this must be my destination”
‘Cause they told me, when I was younger
Sayin’ “Boy, you’re gonna be president”
But just like everything else, those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and went

“Someone, someone worries
Worries for me up there
Came and lit a few stars
And they fall one by one.”

A song by Hebrew writer Ehud Manor, at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel, on Yom HaShoah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה), Holocaust Memorial Day. Singing for remembering the people who were killed in the holocaust and for all the victims of terrorist attacks.
