Sonic Overload 2/11/13

You might wonder, “what‘s up with all those songs about doing awful things to the Pope?” Well, Pope Benedict XVI has announced he’s stepping down at the end of the month, after a Papal reign that started in 2005. He’s 85 and has been in poor health and wasn’t considered to be a long-term Pope, as it was. He’s also taken the church in a much more conservative direction, continuing to be hostile to homosexuality, reproductive choice and conception. Meanwhile, there was a cover-up, for a long time, of the sexual molestation of children by Catholic priests, something that’s only recently been addressed and there’s a long way to go. And I don’t see the next Pope being any sort of progressive because, except for the brief reign of Pope John Paul I, the last half century has pushed the church further to the right. So, yeah, that’s why I played all those Pope songs.

And things are slowly getting back to normal after the blizzard that dumped two feet of snow on us over the weekend. No major problems for us, just two-plus hours outside plowing the driveway. Ah, winter in New England. Gotta love it...

Finally, Happy Valentine’s Day. This week’s Sonic Overload is chock full of love songs. OK, a few love songs. Enjoy...
