Trump’s First 100 Days Songs Playlist

2017-April-29

Trump 100 Days 100 Song Playlist by BlueBeachSongToday is Saturday, April 29, 2017, and it marks Donald Trump’s first 100 Days in office as President of the United States. (No, it’s okay, I needed a moment, too.)

It is hard to believe that it has been one-hundred days. It really feels like, oh, I don’t know…years!

So, meandering from thought to thought in a nonsensical run-on sentence, as our “winning” leader is wont to do, because he is “a very, very smart person” who “knows all the best words,” as he has told us so many times, despite his small ego and bigly hands the better to grab us by the…oh, (unintelligible)…and, so, to conclude, below is a YUUUGE collection I have compiled of 100 songs to mark Trump’s first 100 days…and to celebrate us surviving him and his kleptocratic kakistocracy of merry Russian men, billionaires, generals, and family members.

So, as I was saying…It is the best 100-Song Playlist in the world. Everybody says so. Believe me. Cross my heart and hope NOT to die while a couple of insecure guys try to settle whose nuclear missile is bigger, yes, Trump & North Korea, I’m talking to you…oh, and you Syria, and ISIS, and Russia, and…God help us!


On a serious note…

Seeing the humor in difficult situations can help us navigate through difficult times, which can also serve as a form of resistance and community. So, I hope you will understand that my attempt at humor in this post does not diminish how seriously I take the current state of our politics.

#TheResistance movement has been busy online and in real life uncovering and sharing information; actively organizing, marching and protesting; as well as coping through humor and music with the incredulous insanity of Russia’s interference in our 2016 election resulting in the election of Donald Trump.

A few days ago, the hashtag #TrumpsDay100Songs was trending on Twitter as people shared song titles to mark Trump’s first 100 days. I was no exception.

My mind flooded with countless songs relevant to Trump, about Trump, relevant in title only, or in meaning, relevant to the Resistance movement, to peaceful protesters, to the times, to specific issues and struggles. So, I wrote them down and below are my meager offerings to the effort, an eclectic collection of 100 songs – across genres and decades.

(If you need a little motivation and inspiration, listen to them today as you participate in the Climate Marches taking place across the country.)

On a personal note, if you follow me on Twitter @BlueBeachSong, you’ve probably noticed that since the election, like so many others, I have been focused more on news, information, commentary, resources, activities, efforts, and issues related to Trump, our government, and #TheResistance. It feels pressingly important and urgent. However, I do look forward to the day when we have resolution on all-things Trump, we get answers to our questions, and we can all go back to some version of normalcy.

In the meantime, I hope you, too, will get involved, join the conversation, educate yourself on the issues, and stay informed – every day – about what’s going on in our country, our government, in the White House and in Congress. And don’t ever stop. Stay engaged, so this does not happen again. We lose our democracy when we allow foreign powers to manipulate our elections.

In the end, the power we have is to make ourselves educated voters and then…vote! And if you can, run for office. Find your way – big or small – to take back control, seek the truth, and hold our politicians accountable. So, tweet, march, run, organize, protest, call, write, create, vote, and sing protest songs. Given the enormous sacrifices the founding fathers and mothers of this democracy made, isn’t active citizenship a small price to pay to keep it safe?

#Resist. #Insist. #Persist. And keep on marching! –Martie | Blue Beach Song
