So I made a CD for Sid’s and the Debate Party we’re having next week. Since it’s my idea, I’m guest bar tending. If you’re in the area, you should stop by.
Anyway, on to the CD:
Power To The People: John Lennon
War Pigs: Cake
Know Your Rights: The Clash
All You Fascists: Billy Bragg and Wilco
War Sinéad: O’Connor
Redemption Song: Joe Strummer
Paranoia (Never Enough): Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
I Got Your Number: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Shake the Sheets: Pharmacists & Ted Leo
Last to Die: Bruce Springsteen
The Rising: Bruce Springsteen
Keep The Car: Running Arcade Fire
Four Winds: Bright Eyes
Plasticities (Remix): Andrew Bird
16 Military Wives: The Decemberists
Hey Clown: Firewater
Dirty Old Town: The Pogues
The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song…(With All Your Power): The Flaming Lips
Indian Summer: Pedro The Lion
This is a jukebox CD, meaning I can get away with multiple songs by one artist. At the same time, I feel that the CD is missing something. The ending track could be a lot stronger (read: Louder). Anyone have any ideas?
Strong, loud closers:
“Fight the Power,” Public Enemy
“List Of Demands,” Saul Williams
(Just joking about that last one)
Fight the power was on my list, but I forgot to buy it. Public Enemy it is!
I don’t have good taste in music and I”ll illustrate this by suggesting “New Order”.
What about “Cop Killer?”
“War” by Edwin Starr. Quintessential anti-war song. Observe:
War! Huh, good God.
What is it good for?
I gotta shill for my mostest favoritest band:
The Beatles – Revolution
But when you want money for people with minds that hate, all I can tell is brother you have to wait.
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right.
