Music from around the world
This song list has been moved from the RRT section The Magic of a Good Mix #1 Choose to Love The Universal Language of Music We need a cosmopolitan* approach which seeks integration, not divide. J-Calvin Choose to Love Youtube song video (2018) https //www youtube com/watch?v=g4v6SpMKDQU Note from PF: The basic idea is to love one’s self first, then love others. By using a multi-racial platform to present this lovely song, all of the musicians work together to complete the whole. All are equally vital to the finished composition’s effect and success. This is the way it should be in life. *not a Utopian ideal cosmopolitan approach; the definition here means responsibly and maturely working together while retaining individual differences. It does not mean a dissolution of all nations borders for global communism or socialism. It doesn’t mean trying to make everyone the same, or trying to enforce one set of ideas using draconian measures. The Magic of a Good Mix #2 India The Universal Language of Music This Good Mix series found on the Black Lives Matter Enough is Enough sections is to show that we can respect blacks and other persons of color as fellow human beings, but not like Black Lives Matter because of its cultist, criminalistic, terrorist and race-dividing tendencies. A Good Mix means a good mixture of races and cultures. But it also means people can go home into separate groups without guilt or governmental/societal pressures. We have free will and choices in these matters. If there is forced inclusion or forced or manipulated mixed bloodlines, one group might or not feel supported, another group might fee oppressed. We do not have to “do mixes” all of the time. One group might try to run down isolated groups to try to make them more like their group, like forced religion. Music can help us heal our anger over real or perceived qualitative divides.

I got sent to the mountains of North Carolina. Asheville. Buncombe County. Madison County. Wilkes County. I was on the road with the great collector of music Bascom Lamar Lunsford. He was taking me to the best of the best, the folks he was going to choose to perform at his mountain dance and folk Festival, the first festival of that type in the USA. My film ran on national primetime television in 1966 and showed Americans for the first time what these people were like, not just their wonderful musicianship, but this storytelling and poetry and dance and culture. One day Bascom took me to Jesse "Lost John" Ray, who he said folks in that region called the greatest fiddler….. They treated me beautifully and gave me the opportunity to record wonderful 16mm film… I loved mountain music – bluegrass music – country music back then, and I still do today. Especially when played by "real folks" like Lost John. https //www youtube com/watch?v=GrSl6r0hZpk Badly Bent The Tractors 2018 https //www youtube com/watch?v=FKTG96-DeYw Durango, Colorado The Chicks Travelin' Soldier (Official Video) https //www youtube com/watch?v=AbfgxznPmZM Dallas, Texas 1989 started band Musicians: Victor Furtado & Andrew Vogts Saco [?} Orangutans The Flat Pennies, Old Time Southern Appalachian music An Innovative Twist On Appalachian Old Time Music Song: Invasion of the Saber Tooth [Mammoth?] Oct. 4, 2017 https //www youtube com/watch?v=BjnBRS8w_NQ&list=PL0EdoRRHsYboPabuS-2YaskPA8w8 TEDxWilmington event Two young men started early in youth Mean Mary Mean Mary - Brand New Day (with wedding pictures) June 2017 https //www youtube com/watch?v=Hxn638vb8lw Young Country | Songs of Southwestern Songwriters The Other Side of The Hill Jan 5, 2019 https //www youtube com/watch?v=nGdcWAMKM5w O Come, O Come Emmanuel & Come Thou Long Expected Jesus - The Petersens (Live) Dec 19, 2019 2,048,323 views as of 2020/12/2 https //www youtube.com/watch?v=aKEUlJRQVbA Missouri group Big Head Todd and the Monsters Broken Hearted Savior 2008 Live at Red Rocks https //www youtube com/watch?v=3LDTOELWKts Big Head Todd and The Monsters are a rock band formed in 1984 in Colorado, with Todd Park Mohr on guitar and vocals, Brian Nevin on drums and Brad Christerson on bass.

See a Magic of a Good Mix Songs from around the world depict a unifying aspect. Music is a universal language. As such, let us apply a lingua franca, a cosmopolitan approach in the public domain, a way to conduct affairs and communicate so basic rights and needs shared by all humans are addressed. It is a way to get along with each other despite differences. But at the end of the day, we are able to go home and bask peacefully in our individuality and culture. The American system is that unifying approach. We need to be in synchronized agreement on certain key issues. Many of us have a “true” red-white-and-blue America in our hearts and preferences, but the nation has many types vying for dominance. Terrorist-cartel, Communist Chinese, Radical Islam, Marxist, East European neo-Soviet style or radical religious control are not options.
