Music Monday – “Take me to the place where you go/Where nobody knows if it’s night or day/But please don’t put your life in the hands/Of a Rock ‘n’ Roll band/Who’ll throw it all away”

Yesterday’s “One Love for Manchester” concerts, pulled together only a couple weeks after a terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert are being compared to the 1970’s “Concert for Bangladesh“, the 1980’s “Live Aid“, the 1990’s “Tibetan Freedom Concert” and the 2000’s “Live 8” as another in a long line of notable benefit concerts – this being perhaps the biggest of the 2010’s and the first for much of Generation Z members born since ~2000.

“One Love Manchester” featured lots of performances by current and recent stars with a healthy dose of UK-based musicians including Coldplay covering an Oasis anthem

Don’t Look Back in Anger” – Coldplay with Ariana Grande (Oasis cover)

Robbie Williams asking the crowd to help him with his biggest (and very fitting for the occasion) hit…

And an Oasis song, sung by surprise guest, Liam Gallagher, that was also very appropriate to the moment…
