Oh no ... it's Election Day !!!
and especially American friends. There ain't many of you, I admit, but honestly, tonight I don't envy you one bit for being American (actually I don't do it at others nights either, but that's a different story): whatever you do, whichever of the two cunts you choose to vote for, you just can't do the right thing, I'm afraid.
And the main problem is that it won't be all too long before all of this will have a serious impact on European politics as well: God help us all!
Here are a few tunes that I just couldn't get out of me head within the last few days:
Johnny Osbourne - 'Politician' ('81)
Clash - 'I'm So Bored With The USA' (Demo Version '76)
Cortinas - 'Fascist Dictator' ('77)
Talking Heads - 'Don't Worry About The Government' (live Maynard, Mass. '77)
Dead Kennedys - 'We've Got A Bigger Problem Now' ('81)
Smirks - 'American Patriots' ('79)
Anti-Pasti - No Government' ('81)
Attila The Stockbroker - 'The Ballad Of Airstrip One' ('84)
Tonight's dilemma is so crucial, at least so it seems to me, that - in comparison to the the two jerks currently shivering on the other side of the Atlantic in the thought of whether or whether not they will be leader of the free world by tomorrow morning - the title of this next one has become true. And I never thought I'd ever say this:
Notsensibles - 'I'm In Love With Margaret Thatcher' ('/9)
Ah well ...
PS: I'd love to have included John Cooper Clarke's mighty 'Twat', because by and large it sums up neatly my thoughts about those two imbeciles, but for the life of me I couldn't find it. Sorry, but then again I suppose you know it by heart anyway ...
