Soundtrack for the First Week of January 2015

I've made a mix Soundtrack for this week, to be played against the images of the attack on Charlie Hebdo, to the bodies that line the village lanes in Nigeria from those slain at the hands of Boko Haram, to the gloating Republicans making legislation to sodomize what's left of the working class Americans, to the gaiety of Floridians . . . there are joys and there are trials, there is new hope and there is new terror.   The songs that have come to my mind this week, in this soundtrack, seem more like an escape to a "happy place" rather than a full-on tackling of these images.  

But then, you can hear for yourselves:
