Al-related media references.

We’re probably all familiar with seeing something mentioned in the press, on TV, or online that reminds us of an Al song. So I thought it would be interesting to log these, and then after a while to look back and see just how many of the songs still resonate in today’s world. Please feel free to add to the list by emailing me via the Contact page on the website, or at rick.martyn@liketimelesswine.com. I will need details of the reference, the source and date, and the Al song to which it relates. If the reference is indirect or the connection a bit tenuous, a brief explanation would be helpful. An internet link should also be given, if applicable. Unless requested otherwise, I will credit the contributor by name (or username if preferred), and then add the details to the list that I’ve started below:
