Put your music player on shuffle and list the FIRST FIVE rock songs that come up (NO CHEATING!) For each one, write a deranged misinterpretation proving that the song somehow is related to and supports the modern-day American right-wing agenda. Then tag five of your friends!!!
#1: "White Boots Marching in a Yellow Land" by Phil Ochs
This stirring anthem is an ode and testament to the bravery of the American soldier. The song takes a particularly brave stand in its refusal to stomach the notion of "sympathy" for counter-insurgent forces.
Blow them from the forest and burn them from your sight Tie their hands behind their back and question through the night But when the firing squad is ready they'll be spitting where they stand At the white boots marching in a yellow land
#2: "Walking in L.A." by Missing Persons
One of the most important of American freedoms is the freedom to drive. It is the God-given right of every American to drive as big a vehicle as possible as often as possible. It's part of our dominion over the Earth. And as for notions of "environmental responsibility" or "alternative transportation" they are rightly held up to ridicule. It is preposterous, after all, that anyone capable of driving would voluntarily choose not to.
I don't know could've been a lame jogger maybe Or someone just about to do the freeway strangler baby Shopping cart pusher or maybe someone groovie One thing's for sure, he isn't starring in the movies. 'Cause he's walkin' in L.A.
#3: "Life is Shit" by the Dead Milkman
In this hymn-like piece, the Milkmen sum up what it would be like to live in a world in which liberals controlled everything. And they use stirring, patriotic imagery such as Baptist school-girls and Richard Nixon to communicate that point.
And on a pretty Sunday morning A bunch of pretty Baptist girls Linked their pretty hands and they sang Life is shit, life is shit The world is shit, the world is shit This is life as I know it This is life as I know it
#4: "Let Love Be Your Energy" by Robbie Williams
This tune is all about the wrath of the Allmighty. It starts out with an anti-abortion sentiment before moving onto the eventual Apocalypse provoked by God's wrath.
Out of a million seeds Only the strongest one breathes You made a miracle mother I'll make a man out of me Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky? What did we do wrong, why did it die? And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply'
#5: "When My Boy Walks Down the Street" by the Magnetic Fields
This short simple ditty is another rumination on the miracle of life. It describes the marvelous things a father experiences when he watches his offspring.
Grand pianos crash together when my boy walks down the street There are whole new kinds of weather when he walks with his new beat Everyone sings hallelujah when my boy walks down the street Life just kind of dances through ya from your smile down to your feet Amazing he's a whole new form of life Blue eyes blazing and he's going to be my wife
Now, five people I wouldn't mind seeing take this on (but I'm not officially tagging since I know not everyone is into the whole "internet meme" thing): GayProf bitterandrew Ragnell Eddie Kevin
