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!

I cannot stop watching this performance! I think I've watched it ten times over the past twenty-for hours - it was just amazing and I love, love, love the androgynous but extremely sexual vibe. Love him.

I don't follow AI at ALL....watched it years ago if it was already on, and I found the 'judges' annoying as hell.
I thought that was great, and the way he turned it around to make it so different, that shows talent and creativity, IMHO, and that Simon Cowell (hope I got his name right) is the one full of himself....dumb ass.
I hope this guy wins, if only b/c he actually will go places if he does.
