Positive Songs For Negative Times #25: WTAF?

The new Ben Folds single succinctly summarises a year that gives new meaning to the term "annus horribilis" . As Ben puts it in this short sharp shock piano ballad....

We're not repeating history
Just the parts that sucked
2020 - what the actual fuck?
Pray we get through,
But hey, don't hold your breath
Cuz there's plenty left to wreck
We've got 6 months left
How many years will we try to cram into one?

And on top of all that, we have to say goodbye to Charlie Daniels, who died of a stroke, aged 83, earlier this week. I didn't agree with his politics, but I couldn't fault his fiddle-playing.

Here's another one I owe to Uncle Tel...

And its star-studded sequel...

Nothing succeeds like excess.

RIP, Charlie Daniels.
