Billie Holiday - Strange Fruit "Strange Fruit" performed most famously by Billie Holiday, who first sang and recorded it in 1939. Written by a teacher Abel Meeropol as a poem, it exposed American racism, particularly the lynching of African Americans. Meeropol set it to music and with his wife and the singer Laura Duncan, performed it as a protest song in New York venues, including Madison Square Garden.

The very first concert I ever attended. It wasn't just a show it was like watching the unbelieveable. Watching Michael Jackson perform was so hypnotizing. It was inspiring. He started off with humble beginnings and became this international mega star. It was hard for people of color with talent to in the era he was growing up to acheive the kind of success he did.

like older rock bands

I am a huge music lover. If you meet me, within an hour you will be completely aware of it. People have always come to me to find new music, music that hasn't been discovered by the local radios.   Check out my other post, My post, Songs Everyone Should Listen To (My Playlist) , to see songs I actually listen to. One thing I always tell people is that just because music is old, doesn't mean it's not good anymore. Music doesn't expire. One of my all-time band, if not my most favorite band, is The Beatles. There isn't new music being released, yet it isn't being overplayed. I never get annoyed with the music because I control how much the music is played around me. The music is still good, and sometimes when the current music is horrible and overplayed, old music is a breath of fresh air. Music is my best friend. I am a complete music addict. And it's a great addiction because it doesn't hurt me or anyone else, and you physically cannot overdose on it. Music is always reliable. It's not a lie that I simply love music. I play it on my phone, my iPod, my computer, my car radio, my iHome, My piano, my violin, my guitar, my ukulele, my flute. I constantly have music playing. Or I sing. I couldn't post about music without doing a John Lennon reference, so here it is. "Music is everybody's possession. It's only the publishers who think that people own it."  Music really is my escape. It's where I leave my problems and I can take a break and relax. It's where I become someone else. Music is almost my alter ego in a way.. I've never thought of it like that, until now. But it really is. So my question to you few people who actually read this, and thank you for that, but what are some of your favorite songs, bands, musicians? Ones that aren't constantly played on the radio. Thanks for reading! I really would appreciate some feedback! :)

Walt Whitman

'Resist much. Obey little'. American poet Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is among the most influential poets in American literature, and is known by many as the "Father of Free Verse." Much of his work was considered controversial during his lifetime, especially the collection Leaves of Grass, which includes sexual references many deemed obscene at the time.

Walt Whitman When I was a kid we played a card game called "Authors" that had photographs of authors and I always Walt Whitman was very handsome! I remember my brother and I playing it all the time. We loved it!!

Walt Whitman was born on May 31, 1819 in West Hills, New York. He is considered one of America’s most influential poets. He revolutionized American poetry and invented free verse, a new poetic form. He was part of the transcendentalist movement, which believed society and institituions threatened the purity of the individual...READ MORE ON WORDSNQUOTES.COM.

Walt Whitman “Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.” ~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Reading list.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Perhaps the most ironic banned book situation, Fahrenheit 451 deals with the issue of censorship in a dystopian society that sends firefighters out to burn down houses discovered to have books inside. Those opposed to this book claim various reasons for banning it including profanity, portrayal of smoking and drinking, and anti-religious and anti-establishment sentiments.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This might be my favorite book ever! (Or close to it!) I LOVED it.

Fahrenheit 451 A great book I had to read in High School but fell in love with!

Top 15 Great Science Fiction Books books-worth-reading

Banned Books Week is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and I am excited to be participating again! So I chose to read Fahrenheit 451. I read this many many years ago, and it was time to revisit this classic. What a perfect time to read a book not just about the banning of books, but the burning of them, and the banning of reading. It's ironic, but a sad irony, the kind you don't want to see. When life imitates art and not in a good way. Fahrenheit 451 is about a fireman -  in this world, firemen set fire to books, their job it is to burn them, and the houses of any people who dare to have books in their homes. Guy Montag meets a young woman outside her home one night, and her kindness and curiosity awaken the curiosity of Guy. She makes him think, wonder. We later learn that Guy has another secret, a stash of books he has taken on the sly from homes he has burned. He ends up on the run from the government as he refuses to turn away from this new side of himself, and ultimately murders his boss. Guy makes it out of the city after a harrowing chase through the streets, pursued by the Electric Hound, and finds himself in a group of revolutionaries, self-exiled from the cities walking the rails, who read.  It is a book about censorship, about whether the government should do the thinking for its people - for why should the people care or know anything about political candidates? - it's about people preserving knowledge for the future. I love the group that Montag is with in the very end, those fellow escapees committed to free thought and will, to the preservation of literature for future generations. Everyone has a book they are responsible for remembering, to hold onto until the time is right for the book to exist again. It always makes me wonder what book would I choose to be responsible for? What do I think is important enough, for whatever the reason, that I would try to keep it alive, waiting generations if necessary. I think that I may choose Watership Down, my favorite book. Fahrenheit 451 has been challenged for reasons of language and for religious reasons. It blows my mind that someone could read this book and not understand that they were just doing exactly what the book was trying to show was so wrong! That you are censoring a book about censorship? Maybe that is what is so scary, and what they really are guarding against. Knowledge that you don't have to just accept what is told to you, that you can think about it, form your own opinions.  If you haven't read this, or haven't read it in a long time like me, I urge you to pick it up. It is a quick but powerful read, and what better time to read it?

I love reading

My absolute favorite thing is finding a book I can't put down. And reading it until really late at night. And only stopping when my eyes start to hurt and my vision gets blurry from either sleep or strain. And when I put it down I realize how tired I am and fall asleep instantly. In the morning, I wake up, and the first thing I do is pick up the book. And I read until I'm hungry, or I need to pee. I just love that.

Gosh this is me all the time:) yesyesyesyesyes. I don't read books I don't like.
