Hi Alicia,Congratulations on The Independent article, that's great. I really like your blog and the things you've written and said about the current state of affairs. In The Independent you say "Have you, like me, been recalling the great protest songs of the Sixties, and wondered where the new protest songs are?" If you get a chance, I really hope you do listen to the song "Talkin' America tis of thee Blues" by Joel Moore at www.joelmoore.org.This is the link to the song:http://tanasimusic5.blogspot.com/2005/01/talkin-america-tis-of-thee-blues.htmlI think you would really like it. With lyrics, he expresses similar sentiment: "Now people believe me when I sayGod went public the other dayI saw him jumpin'up & down shoutin IPOWell his stock shot up right through the roofSo we synchronized our satellites and gathered our troopsand reported for duty over at sand dune thirty-two..Our souls are frost bitdownwind this arrogant witin an Earth drowning fitin rides our service-dodging President
Bloggers can't wait to hear the Alicia Morgan solo! Impeach!
No solo for me (or anyone, as far as I know) - it's all choir, although I am in the alto section.
Alicia: Congratulations! I can't wait to hear this album.What is your impression of the possibility of Neil touring the new disc? If it is as powerful as you say and it sounds, he could be stunning.If you are interested in other politically influenced songs, you might want to check out: James McMurtry: 'They Can't Make It Here Anymore' and Jon Langford (a U.K. ex-pat, memeber of The Mekons) 'Lost In America'.-Chicago reader
