I do the rock!

Edith Sitwell giving readings
14 Moscow Road
Osbert's giving champagne parties
Sachie's got a cold
Gertrude's hanging pictures
Alice making tea
Me, I do the only thing that still
makes sense to me
I do the Rock
I do the Rock Rock

John and Yoko farming beef
raising protein quota
Sometimes they make love and art
inside their dakota
Rodney's feeling sexy
Mick is really frightfully bold
Me, I do the only thing that stops me growing old
I do the Rock
I do the Rock Rock
I do the Rock Rock Rock

Well, it's stimulating

Solzhenitzin feels exposed
build a barbed-wired prison
Nietsche's six feet under but his babies still got rythm
Einstein's celebrating ten decades
but I'm afraid philosophy is just too much responsibility for me
I do the Rock
I do the Rock

Baby Ruth and Dizzy Dean
Best and Colin Cowdrey
Little Mo, Virginia Wade
Pistol Pete and O.J.
I've always like Di Maggio
and Rockne's pretty knute you know
I could never wack a ball with such velocity
I do the Rock
I do the Rock
I do the Rock
It's stimulating - I'm a keen student

Liz and Dick and Britt and Liza
Jaclyn, Kate and Farah
Meg and Roddy, John Travolta
Governor Brown and Linda
Interview and People Magazine
Miss Rona and the Queen
It must be really frightful to attract publicity
I do the Rock
I do the Rock
Carter, Begin and Sadat
Breznhev, Teng and Castro
everyday negotiate us closer to desastro
Idi Amin and the Shah
and Al Fatah is quite bizarre
I could never get the hang of ideology
I do the Rock
I do the Rock
I do - I do - I do - do the Rock

World On Fire

Jocelyn Kupets
Enlightened Music Write-Up

Name of Song: World on Fire
Artist: Sarah McLachlan- As a child, Sarah was very into music.  She took voice lessons and studied classical piano and guitar.  When she was 17, she was in a short term rock band.  She was offered a recording contract with Nettwerk, out of Vancouver.  But in order to do so, her parents said she had to finish high school and one year at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.  Two years later, she signed with Nettwerk.
Hearts are worn in these dark ages
You're not alone in this story's pages
Night has fallen amongst the living and the dying
And I try to hold it in, yeah I try to hold it in

The world's on fire and
It's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water
(I try to pull my ship)
I try to bring more
More than I can handle
(Bring it to the table)
Bring what I am able

I watch the heavens and I find a calling
Something I can do to change this moment
Stay close to me while the sky is falling
Don't wanna be left alone, don't wanna be alone

Philosophe Associated: Jean Jacques Rousseau- The first statement that Rousseau makes is “It is unfair that some are rich while others are poor.”  The music video very much exemplifies what people, that are better off, can do to help those in need.

    This song relates to the Enlightenment because of the the manner in which it was presented and the action Sarah McLachlan took.  People during the Enlightenment wrote down what should be done and did it.  Lately, the United States has been lacking in the action part.  What McLachlan did was put the writings to action.  She modeled the work of the philosophes and did the work to achieve her goal.
