Who Do You Think You're Changing?
Do you still believe? Will you rise up, with fists? Let's have a musical night of music posts, all chosen by your editor, for theme time election night hour.
That first song is by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins, all fine people from Echo Park and Silver Lake, in California. Oh and that is Sarah Silverman doing the introduction, she of the Great Schlep campaign, to get Jewish kids to shame their Florida grandparents into voting for Barack Obama.
You can work out the winks and Vegas and false prophets &c., for yourselves.
And, hell, you should know this, HENGHH? Leonard Cohen, Democracy.
Electioneering, by your Radiohead, with campaign video put together by this dude, who is unsatisfied, by the politics.
Oh, here is Sarah Palin, playing the alcoholic-divorce classic "All Shook Down," plus "Talent Show," by the Replacements.
Because, good lord, we are still Unsatisfied.
You are, you are ... kill for you. (Cat Power)
Ha, here is some of the "change" you people like, from the late great Sam Cooke, who is dead now, and has been since about the time Barack Obama was a (terrorist) baby. Fun trivia: Cooke wrote this after hearing Bob Dylan's "Blowing in the Wind."
We are now taking suggestions, like this one, by Barack Obama's radical Chicago priest, Liz Phair.
