This is actually a catch-up song, as I didn’t initially get a tune posted for March 20. Still, there was plenty going on over the weekend. I decided to go with “For the Kids of the Multiculture,” an antiracist anthem by Sonic Boom Six. This song seems like something we should all be listening to in the wake of the killing of eight people in Atlanta and ongoing violence against Asian Americans. There’s no room for such things. So, let’s remember that there’s a lot more that unites us than divides us.
Today, AP is reporting that it looks more and more like the work-from-home trend encouraged by the pandemic will continue even once the virus is tamed.

This could herald a major, longterm shift in American culture, and there is no better song to note this than “Home” by Daughtry.
