Runaway Train from The Wild Trapeze.
Seems to me that being the middle is starting to get me in trouble.
I tried to run away but they have a talent for making trouble seem enjoyable.
The more I try to separate, the better it feels to get right in the way.
Should I douse the spark or fan the flames or merely think of clever things to say?
And I try so hard to get out of the way of that runaway train.
Oh, how I do love the rain.

The angelic chorus you hear accompanying the normally paced sound of the crickets is NOT a synthesizer or a human chorus singing. It's the crickets themselves (in slow motion) creating the sound. This recording is an extended digitally remixed and mastered version taken from the original 1992 recording entitled "Ballad of the Twisted Hair" from the album "Medicine Songs" by David Carson and Little Wolf Band produced by Jim Wilson and released on Raven Records.

Wafalme (the Kings) live in Nairobi (Kenya) in the slum area of Mathare Valley. They are already hip-hop stars in Kenya and now they want to speak to kids all over the world. Dandora and Korogocho are two slums that totally lack trash collection, despite the fact that houses, shops and hotels from all of Nairobi dump roughly 1.5 tons of trash there every day. Research by the UNEP shows that residents of Mathare, Dandora and Korogocho are dying because of this dump. A total of 328 children and adolescents living and schooling there were examined. Half of the children tested had concentrations of lead in their blood exceeding internationally accepted levels.
Yet, the the youth of the slum say "trash is cash." Plastic, iron, paper, glass, and organic waste (80 percent of the total trash) can be recycled and become a source of income for thousands of the inhabitants. Some have invented work for themselves and are actually producing water-purification systems, compost, bio-fuel from coffee seeds and paperboard... all developed with self-constructed machines. The results are that recycling creates a source of income for a big number of people in a slum where joblessness and surplus trash cause major problems. The music video was written and developed by the young hip-hoppers themselves.

In the media landscape there are climate change deniers and believers, but rarely are those speaking about climate change actual climate scientists... yo....we're climate scientists.. and there's no denying this Climate Change Is REEEEALL..
Who's a climate scientist. I'm a climate scientist..
Not a cleo finalist No a climate scientist
I said Burn! it's hot in here. 32% more carbon in the atmosphere.
Oh Eee Ohh Eee oh wee ice ice ice Raisin' sea levels twice by twice
We're scientists, what we speak is True. Unlike Andrew Bolt our work is Peer Reviewed.
“The Testimony of Patience Kershaw”. Sung by the UnThanks, written by Frank Higgins and based on the testimony given to the Children’s Employment Commission in 1842 by a 17 year old girl who was employed as a hurrier (see here) in a coalmine.
It’s good of you to ask me, Sir, to tell you how I spend my days
Down in a coal black tunnel, Sir, I hurry corves to earn my pay.
The corves are full of coal, kind Sir, I push them with my hands and head.
It isn’t lady-like, but Sir, you’ve got to earn your daily bread.
I push them with my hands and head, and so my hair gets worn away.
You see this baldy patch I’ve got, it shames me like I just can’t say.
A lady’s hands are lily white, but mine are full of cuts and segs.
And since I’m pushing all the time, I’ve got great big muscles on my legs.
I try to be respectable, but sir, the shame, God save my soul.
I work with naked, sweating men who curse and swear and hew the coal.
The sights, the sounds, the smells, kind Sir, not even God could know my pain.
I say my prayers, but what’s the use? Tomorrow will be just the same.
Now, sometimes, Sir, I don’t feel well, my stomach’s sick, my head it aches.
I’ve got to hurry best I can. My knees are weak, my back near breaks.
And then I’m slow, and then I’m scared these naked men will batter me.
But they’re not to blame, for if I’m slow, their families will starve, you see.
Now all the lads, they laugh at me, and Sir, the mirror tells me why.
Pale and dirty can’t look nice. It doesn’t matter how hard I try.
Great big muscles on my legs, a baldy patch upon my head.
A lady, Sir? Oh, no, not me! I should’ve been a boy instead.
I praise your good intentions, Sir, I love your kind and gentle heart
But now it’s 1842, and you and I, we’re miles apart.
A hundred years and more will pass before we’re standing side by side
But please accept my grateful thanks. God bless you Sir, at least you tried.
