R.E.M. belting out the always apt "It's the End of the World as We Know It."  

(I b'lieve Trump is mentioned in the  lyrics! They knew all about our current situation back in 1991!)

And then there's Mr. Dylan. His nonsense lyrics often wind up being very insightful. Even if they're not, you always get a couple of good images and several quotable quotes, in this case from the chorus of "Things Have Changed." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9EKqQWPjyo

Nice. Do you like any Neil Young?

I've never listened to him, except when he records with people I do listen to. Obviously he can write and he can sing - I was just never much interested in him after "Southern Man" and that typical liberal look-down-your-nose-at-people-who-aren't-like-you attitude.

Another storied singer from Ireland is Christy Moore. He's sort of their version of Pete Singer - a folk singer with very definite and left-leaning political opinions. But he also sings a lot of fun stuff, including "The Reel in the Flickering Light," an encounter by moonlight among the "creatures" ending in a dance.
