Arizona, and an Amazing Song

The Glen Jones Radio Show played a 2 hour set in response to /related to the shootings in Arizona. The song below was the first song in the set. I would highly recommend going and listening to it. Did you know that Boomtown Rats' song "I don't like Mondays" is based on shootings by a 16 year old girl which killed 2 adults and injured 8 children? I didn't. That is also in the set. I haven't listened to all the other songs, but am listening to the archive again just to see.

Elton John's song is 37 years old?? Wow. Listen to the lyrics. Listen to the piano playing behind the singing. Amazing.

That sounds like an interesting playlist and unfortunately, timely.
