TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! FEAR BRUTAL EASTER WEEKEND FIGHT NIGHT IN DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY!!!
On a weekend where a great many Kansas City residents are preparing a celebration dedicated to the PRINCE OF PEACE . . . Kansas City downtown supporters are offered a bloody human cage match spectacle inside the loop.
MMA fight night is already underway and there have already been a couple of notable knockouts.
Rather than celebrating these nobodies beating each other stupid and reinforcing the misguided celebration of American mainstream media violence as a way of life, we're simply offering a few of our favorite fight songs for tonight . . .
Remembering that The Karate Kid wasn't so much about karate beatings but a cheesy 80s coming of age story about the struggle against bullies and the search for balance in life . . .
Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" didn't really promote fisticuffs but instead offered a testimony about the dead end working class life that he surpassed as a young musician.
Kung-Fu Fighting . . . Maybe the best fighting song of all time offers tribute to THE INTERNATIONAL CULTURE OF CINEMA and not beating down mankind.
Just to keep things a bit current . . . Rachel Platten - Fight Song is about the inner struggle to find her voice and battle for her music . . . Moreover, it has been a soundtrack to many political protests over the past year . . .
Finally . . .
Fight For Your Right To Party is a classic opus which reminds us that it can often be a struggle to have a good time but it's totes worth it.
And so . . . We encourage locals to think carefully about their entertainment options and possibly look beyond a mere celebration of bloody conflict to something that might uplift the human spirit as we've tried to do with this collection of sounds to sooth our savage cowtown . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night . . .
