What with the extra time on his hands, and with thanks to the many hundreds, I mean hundreds, of nominations received since I posted Bush’s iPod, Take 2, I couldn’t resist doing another installment. Here’s a new round of songs for the First iPod, drawn from reader submissions. And I’d love to keep this going, so please use the new comments field below to let me know what you think the President should be listening to.
Black Sabbath’s War Pigs was the top vote getter. (“Politicians hide themselves away. They only started the war. Why should they go out to fight? They leave that role to the poor, yeah.”) Jaclyn Stacy in Stow, Ohio writes, ” I cannot believe nobody has nominated War Pigs yet! Talk about a song being truer today than it was when it was originally released! We here in Cleveland have a local DJ that plays that song almost every day–his little barb at an Administration and a party run amok.”
Others with multiple nominations:
Bright Eyes’ When the President Talks to God.(Many of you said this was a must…..”a great song…most blatant, unreserved criticism of the president I have heard to date. best of all it is free on iTunes.” Greg Jacobs of Brookline, MA, writes, ” it poses many humorous and telling questions, like ‘Does God suggest an oil hike? or ‘Does what god say ever change his mind?'”)
Led Zeppelin’s Dazed and Confused.(“….how he looks,” writes Daniel Price out of Hurst, TX)
Lawyers, Guns & Money by Warren Zevon.
Cocaine, by Eric Clapton
Money, by Pink Floyd(“Can be dedicated to Bush’s good friend Tom DeLay,” suggests Reed Kurtz of Hagerstown, Indiana)
Talking Heads’ Burning Down the House (“Since that is what he seems to be doing–albeit at a slower pace than a real fire,” wrote Lisa Johnson of Scottsdale, AZ
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Fortunate Son (very popular)
