Hurray for the Riff Raff

Leave a comment

Something about the name of this musical group had me reading Maya Angelou Still I Rise and thinking we must raise a glass tomorrow for the rejects, losers and any of us who have gotten our derriere dusted good and proper in the game of life. The tale of Easter and Jesus rising from death, after being treated like the riff raff, has a story for everyone who has survived adversity to watched their inner phoenix rising from the ashes. The band’s Navigator album leads to  this pleasant Ghost story, but the song that really speaks to me at this time is St. Roch Blues.
