Musician David Crosby visits the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zucotti Park - pics
Edited on Fri Nov-04-11 03:38 PM by Kadie

Musician David Crosby, center, visits the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zucotti Park, Friday, Nov. 4, 2011 in New York.


NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 04: Musician David Crosby visits the 'Occupy Wall Street' at Zuccotti Park in the Financial District near Wall Street on November 4, 2011 in New York City. Despite a freak snowstorm last Saturday and the confiscation of their generators by the fire department, hundreds of young and old are staying put in the park. The activists have been gradually converging on the financial district over the past seven weeks to rally against the influence of corporate money in politics among a host of other issues. The protests have begun to attract the attention of major unions and religious groups as the movement continues to grow in influence around the world.


Singer David Crosby from Crosby, Stills and Nash (R) walks among the demonstrators with 'Occupy Wall Street' as they continue their protest at Zuccotti Park in New York on November 4, 2011. The encampment in the financial district of New York City is now in its second month. The demonstrators are protesting bank bailouts, foreclosures and high unemployment.

Or maybe Joni Mitchell will be inspired again. Got to get ourselves back to the garden....

We definitely need some Music to inspire, serenade the cause and tell our story.

19. Yeah we need more protest songs! Like they make it on the air waves...
The Eagles had three plain as day protest songs including the album name song "Long Road Out Of Eden" 2007 I never heard them on the radio. With Clearchannel controlling the majority of the radio stations in this country they are not as effective as they were in th 60-70s


Eagles Frail Grasp On The Big Picture Lyrics

Well, ain't it a shame
That our short little memories
Never seem to learn
The message of history
We keep makin' the same mistakes
Over and over and over and over again
And then we wonder why
We're in the shape we're in

Good ol' boys down at the bar
Peanuts and politics
They think they know it all
They don't know much of nothing
Even if one of them was to read the newspaper
Cover-to-cover
That ain't what's going on
Journalism's dead and gone

Frail grasp on the big picture
Light fading and the fog is getting thicker
It's a frail grasp on the big picture
Dark ages

You my love-drunk friend
All that red wine and candlelight
Soulful conversations
That go on until the dawn
How many times can you tell your story?
How many hangovers can you endure
Just to get some snuggling done?
You're living in a hollow dream
You don't have the slightest notion
What long-term love is all about
All your romantic liasons
Don't deal with eternal questions like
Who left the cap off the freaking toothpaste?
Whose turn to take the garbage out?

Frail grasp on the big picture
You keep on rubbin' that, you're gonna get a blister
It's a frail grasp on the big picture
I've seen it all before

And we pray to our Lord
Who we know is American
He reigns from on high
He speaks to us through middlemen
And he shepherds his flock
We sing out and we praise His name
He supports us in war
He presides over football games
And the right will prevail
All our troubles shall be resolved
We have faith in the Lord
Unless there's money or sex involved

Frail grasp on the big picture
Nobody's calling them for roughing up the pitcher (?)
It's a frail grasp on the big picture
Heaven help us

Frail grasp on the big picture
All waiting for that miracle elixir
Frail grasp on the big picture
I don't wonder anymore

Frail grasp on the big picture
Somebody says, "You brought her here so go ahead and kiss her
Frail grasp on the big picture

Frail grasp on the big picture
Light fading and the fog is getting thicker
It's a frail grasp on the big picture

Frail grasp on the big picture
Frail grasp on the big picture

14. Took you long enough, David
But then, most of your peers have been conspicuous by their absence.
