Pop Goes The Convention

Mark laments the poor quality of pop songs chosen for the DNC.

As I write, the talent-deprived Melissa Etheridge is at the Democratic convention singing versions of “Give Peace a Chance” and “Born in the USA.” Her songs come on top of the tinny, uninspired music from the past two days. After Ted Kennedy finished his gutsy stemwinder Monday night, the sounds of a canned version of “Still the One” (?!) rafted through the hall.

I can’t disagree. The Boss has written better songs that this. My suggestion would be “Adam Raised a Cain,” one of my favorites. Maybe Bruce would help them get creative like “George Raised a McCain”

The Dems need a knowledgeable and cool music afficionado. Somebody who could really pump up the place.

    “talent-deprived Melissa Etheridge”?!? Not to anyone with taste.

  2. I could swear I heard the band playing “Addicted to Love” at the end of Bill Clinton’s speech. No joke.
