August Adios!

For years and years I did an annual parody song of REM’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) recapping the year’s biggest news and pop culture stories. Trust me, it’s pain in the ass.

I’m not really sure why, then, I would decide to do a monthly recap of the top stories in song form. Mind you, it’s not a parody song. It’s an original.

Here’s the thing, there’s always something to sing about. It may not be pleasant – like the Maui fires – but if there’s a rhyme, there’s a way.

August 2023 had its disasters, natural and otherwise. We had the aformentioned fire in Lahaina, Maui and Hurricane Idalia in Florida. And for the unnatural, Donald Trump was indicted not once, but twice.

Sing along with what happened in July with “Goodbye July.”

A first ever World Cup win by the Spanish women was ruined by a kiss while the girl power of Barbie continued to dominate the box office.

The Montgomery, Alabama dock brawl took over socials and spawned more than a few memes and bits dedicated to the folding chair. Meantime, we lost Pee Wee Herman and legendary Price is Right host Bob Barker.

Enough talk. Let’s sing about. This is August Adios!
