Below are the songs I want to hear after the votes are tallied and the election is decided.
If McCain wins, I will be too distraught to play music and will be busy rioting until further notice. But, just for kicks, lets say I can bear to listen to organized sound under such depressing conditions. These are the tunes I will force into my headspace:
Impeach the President by the Honeydrippers [Obvious, innit?] Atmosphere by Joy Division [Strikes the perfect somber tone for an unfathomable tragedy.] Tears of a Clown by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles [Also known as the greatest song ever, this never fails to raise my spirits, even under the most trying circumstances.] The Coldest Days of My Life by the Chi-Lites [See Atmosphere above, but with added soul for solace.] Beat Connection by LCD Soundsystem [Mainly for the line, Its the saddest night out in the USAplus it boasts a damned uplifting rhythm.]
(Note: The playing of the Rolling Stones You Cant Always Get What You Want should be verboten. Thank you.)
If Obama wins, I will kick out these righteous jams:
Move on Up by Curtis Mayfield [Shouldve been Baracks theme song all campaign; perfectly captures the elation of a just cause being realized.] Revolution Generation by Public Enemy [Its gonna take a revolution to undo Rove/Cheney/Bushs reign of error. PEs 20-year-old anthem is the potent motivator to help us get the job done. The Beatles Revolution #1 could also aid us lefties, but its powers been diminished by radio overplay and annoying Baby Boomer residue.] Dont Call Me Nigger, Whitey by Sly & the Family Stone [Message to the two-digit-IQ racists, who will be hella angry if the Arab Muslim homosexual terrorist wins.] One Nation Under a Groove by Funkadelic [It is imperative that Americans unite and get on the good foot from the get-go. This is the song to provoke said unified movement.] Vision Creation Newsun by Boredoms [From our allies in Japan, this piece signifies an awesome rebirth through rhythm and sound. Its an irrepressible positive force.]
What tracks will you be spinning, my fellow Americans?
