I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

Thanks for this.
Stole it for my blog.
Tom and I watched it together, which was pretty interesting. :)

The Fat Lady Sings

It is interesting - isn't it? I know the guy deals in stereotypes - but he's funny as hell. And he's right (for the most part). I think he makes judgments, though (the benign smile when talking about men, the crossing himself when talking about women). That bothered me. But the gist? Pretty much spot on.


Jude

Even being quite generalized there's a lot of truths in there and he's funny as hell!

I love this guy! I got a link shared with me on Facebook and tried to convince the high school students I work with that this is why their boyfriends were clueless. They SO got it!
