The Violent Femmes//Old Mother Reagan, Creedence Clearwater Revival//Fortunate Son


In a celebration of contrast, here are two songs, one that references a less-than-loved-by-the-left American president and one that references shitty American class politics:

Old Mother Reagan.mp3 by The Violent Femmes
About Ronald Reagan —two thoughts: Iran Contra, War on Drugs. ‘NUFF SAID!

Fortunate Son.mp3 by CCR
About David Eisenhower, who was thought to have received preferential treatment due to his family ties and marriage to Nixon’s daughter.

Now, let’s not do that again!

Fortunate Son makes the hairs on my arms stand straight up. Fucking brilliant.

America, fuck yeah!

Now all we need to do is round up the homophobes, put them on a big boat and send them off to start their own colony where they can hang "witches" and have lots of babies.

Can't get enough of those Violent Femmes, that's for sure.
