when the president talks to god is good.
born in the usa
- purely because the republican government at the time though it was an anthem for all the good things about america.
He sounds really good on it, the live versions are great too, loads on youtube. I love how he talks it at times. Maybe not my absolute favourite though. SLF - Wasted Life isn't a bad shout for this.
the Julie Ruin (Kathleen Hanna's solo album) track 'I Wanna Know What Love Is'... can't find a vid or stream though :-( Some Googling has thrown up this link though, I don't know if you can listen to it there though... http://borxoff.blogspot.com/2008/04/julie-ruin-julie-ruin-1998.html

About the Countryside Allience;

But they were such a bunch of thugs the police arrested more,
Than when 2 million normal people marched against the war!

getting a little overplayed now, but still a great someone to scream along to..
my favourite is cheney. short and sweet.
Elvis Costello/Robert Wyatt. My favourite political 'catch 22' song about how the Falklands War revived a community's shipping industry and how the economic revival comes at the cost of the lives of those going to war. It's like Brecht's 'Mother Courage' in a 3 min pop song.
The structure and the politics are inextricable. It's genius, and I don't use the word lightly.
