Brandon Ridenour & Jeremy Jordan – Maxwell’s Silver Hammer

Scroll down to read this post.
For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: Ridenour, on trumpet, arranged the song in the style of early jazz, which isn’t surprising because that’s exactly the stylistic roots of the song, as created by the Beatles.

Hat tip Danae.

    There is a version by the Mona Lisa Twins, that has a distinct Post Modern Jukebox feel to it.
