Notes and Sources:
Shilts explained his use of the title: “And the Band Played On is simply a snappier way of saying ‘business as usual’. Everyone responded with an ordinary pace to an extraordinary situation.” The phrase itself is originally from The Temptations‘ popular 1970 song about encroaching chaos, Ball of Confusion (That’s What the World Is Today); in the song, the phrase repeatedly signals that no one is paying proper attention to world problems
