As a way to vent my frustration at the US debacle…I mean, election, here are five Canadian political songs from the past for your commiseration, since we can’t say enjoyment. Lyrics (with selected highlights) and links to youtube videos can be found under the fold.
Rush, “Beneath, Between And Behind” (1975)
Rough Trade, “What’s the Furor About the Fuhrer?” (1981)
Bruce Cockburn, “The Trouble With Normal” (1983)
Bruce Cockburn, “Call It Democracy” (1983)
Red Rider, “Lunatic Fringe” (1981)
No, posting Cockburn’s lyrics doesn’t violate of my “no profanities” rule. I’m quoting him, not saying it myself.
