I STAND ACCUSED — ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE ATTRACTIONS

One of my all time favorite Elvis Costello songs is "I Stand Accused" (from his GET HAPPY record).

This great song was originally written and recorded by Isaac Hayes and Jerry Butler.

Elvis celebrates the power of the song with just the right amount of emotional distance lest he be consumed by the song's 100% romantic commitment.

Barnburner baby!

Isaac

CHILDISH GAMBINO — THIS IS AMERICA

Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino) takes the protest song form to new heights in this impressive music video that exquisitely captures America's crisis as a Police State busy escalating its 150-year long system of genocide by degree against Black citizens. While Hollywood hides behind generic superhero movies that only pretend to speak to social issues, Donald Glover puts his body, soul, and voice on the line. Props to Childish Gambino. Bring it on.
