I can't stop laughing.


The Bush-Cheney campaign's official "morning wake-up" playlist:

Radiohead 2+2=5
Black Sabbath War Pigs
Dead Kennedys Kill the Poor
Bad Religion The Empire Strikes First
Bob Dylan Masters of War
Norman Greenbaum Spirit in the Sky
Green Day American Idiot
Outkast Bombs Over Baghdad
Rolling Stones Sympathy for the Devil


Oh, please! I don't think I could handle the thought that dumbya would listen to Queen!

1) Radiohead - Creep

2) Creed - One Last Breath

3) Creed - My Own Prison

3) Eagles - Hotel California

4) Norman Greenbaum - Spirit in the Sky

5) Beastie Boys - In a World Gone Mad

6) Eminem - Mosh


J, 'No fizzle in his shizzle'?!? LOL!


Thought of some more:

The Soundtrack from the Wizard of Oz


Onward Christian Soldiers

The Alchemist

NoFX Franco Unamerican. He he he.
Ooh, no The Clash, London Calling... Nah...

Last bid, Befrost - Delirious Fall.


The Village People - YMCA

Michael Jackson - Ben

Michael Hussey

Huey Lewis & the News - Hip To Be Square

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son

How's My Drinking - Guided By Voices

Little Man With A Gun In His Hand - Minutemen

Mr. Roboto - Styz

The Beatles - Money (that's What I Want)

Freddie King - Texas Oil

Cyndi Lauper - She Bop

Christina Aguilera - Dirrty

Dumb - Nirvana


I'll go along with Huey Newton. Also:

Lee Greenwood, "Proud to be an American." On perpetual repeat.


Okay, I have a complete list up at my place, but here are my Top Ten, in alphabetical order:

Bobby Brown - My Prerogative
Boys Don't Cry - I Wanna Be A Cowboy
Calloway - I Wanna Be Rich
Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry
Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
Edith Piaf - Non Je Ne Regrette Rien
Fun Boy Three - The Lunatics (Have Taken Over the Asylum)
Howard Jones - No One Is To Blame
Julian Cope - World Shut Your Mouth
REM - World Leader Pretend


The obvious choice here is Political Science by Randy Newman. Has lyrics that the Busheviks would really dig, like:

No one likes us-I don't know why
We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try
But all around even our old friends put us down
Let's drop the big one and see what happens

We give them money-But are they grateful?
No they're spiteful and they're hateful
They don't respect us-so let's surprise them
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them

Yessiree, definitely the mantra of the Bush Administration!

- Badtux the Songwritin' Penguin


Or we can give him one of my very own tunes:

I Got Mine(The Republican Song)
Copyright 1998 Eric Lee Green

Well I have lots of money
and the car of my dreams
and a house on the hill
that's as rich as it seems
Well I spend lots of money
on things I don't need
and laugh at the people
who complain about greed

I got mine, Lord, I got mine
oh I got mine, Lord, oh I got mine
[Cue: Guitar solo from Deliverance]

Well I bought me a wife
a trophy to keep
she gave me two kids
I only like them asleep
They go to the best private
schools in this town
I vote against taxes
for schools falling down

I got mine, Lord, I got mine
oh I got mine, Lord, oh I got mine.

Well some folks they tell me
that I ought to share
Well some folks they tell me
that I ought to care
that people are starving
in some other place
but I keep forgettin'
that they have a face

I got mine, Lord, I got mine
oh I got mine, Lord, oh I got mine

Well the preacher he asks me
to give to the poor
well I tell him to stuff it
and walk out the door
well a poor man walked up
and he asked me for for work
well I called the the cops
they beat him into the dirt

I got mine, Lord, I got mine
oh I got mine, Lord, oh I got mine

Well they say I can't take it
when it's time to go
but I don't care now
I'm enjoyin' it so
well I'll give all my money
on the day that I die
to the Republican party
and politicians that lie

I got mine, Lord, I got mine
oh I got mine, Lord, oh I got mine.


song suggestion:

The Call: The Walls Came Down

also, pretty much anything from Gil Scott Heron
