Music of the day

Playing for Change, Gimme Shelter (ht/t to Roger Ebert)

From their website: “Playing for Change is a multimedia movement
created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through
music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music
has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between
people. No matter whether people come from different geographic,
political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has
the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And
with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with
the world.”

It is sublime. Although the joking part in me insists that it needs
more cowbell(*).

(*) In case you miss it, that’s an SNL reference.
