A Vastly Different Soundscape (conclusion part one familiar)…

If I was to have a theme song, it would be Soulful Strut…played as the wedding party entrance to the reception at our wedding.

I initially thought to include everything currently in my YouTube music, but the list just keeps growing so instead I’d like to showcase two lists musicians I think everyone may have heard of and a bunch you may be completely unfamiliar with as opposed to highlighting specific songs. Trust me each of these acts have very cool tunes, for all I know someone out there is familiar with every musician listed 👍😁

Only cowards ride SEPTA…

Coward by definition is one without courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant circumstances.

On the other hand, all the people that rode a late night Philadelphia Septa train and stood by and watched a woman initially be sexually assaulted and then full on raped are also heartless and morally bankrupt. Not one single witness called 911 or offered any kind of push back to the assailant or assistance to the victim. No, instead they either sat by and watched or whipped out their phone and recorded the act. Not a one had an ounce of compassion. That, to me is quite sickening. It wouldn’t surprise me that whoever filmed it probably has already uploaded it to pornhub.com or some such site. A situation like this happened a few years back when an elderly woman was physically assaulted by a thug on a subway and again, people recorded the act and uploaded to YouTube or sold the footage to the news and offered absolutely no assistance to the victim. How do people live with themselves ?

I composed this song, as creepy as it sounds, but it’s dedicated to the victim. The cowards…I kind of hope there is divine justice facing them in some capacity.
