I was doing an ear worm today while in the store shopping. One person said I should be a singer. I said thank you. Of course I don't believe that.
The cashier said, she liked how I sing. That I had a good voice. I said thank you. I also was happy that she felt delight with my tune. She was supposed to be closed and decided to check me out last moment. I'm glad I could make it worth her while.
My mom is still here with me..us.
I must say, I've not lived with her before, but it is comfortable being with her. She is very thoughtful and caring. I am indeed blessed.
I've wondered over the past few weeks if I was meeting her needs. I do want her to feel at home and relaxed and have some much needed peace.
The kids adore her!
My husband has been so very kind to provide the means for her to be here with us. Thank you love.
Glad you are joining us today. Our theme is: Music you rocked out to when you were 16 - teens :)
Oh I had so many! But Jackson anything was my drug. Bring on the dance!
"They Don't Care About Us" is the fourth single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I, released on March 31, 1996. The song remains one of the most controversial pieces Jackson ever composed. In the US, media scrutiny surrounding allegations of antisemitic lyrics were the catalyst for Jackson issuing multiple apologies and re-recording the song with altered lyrics. The singer countered allegations of antisemitism, arguing that reviews had misinterpreted the context of the song, either unintentionally or deliberately.
The song was accompanied by two music videos directed by Spike Lee. The first was shot in two locations in Brazil, in Pelourinho, the historic city centre of Salvador, and in a favela of Rio de Janeiro called Dona Marta, where the state authorities had tried to ban all production over fears the video would damage their image, the area and prospects of Rio de Janeiro staging the 2004 Olympics. Still, the residents of the area were happy to see the singer, hoping their problems would be made visible to a wider audience. The second video was shot in a prison and contained video footage of multiple references to human rights abuses.
Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rapin' me off my pride
Oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
Set me free
