A new anthem

Dad's Gonna Kill Me

(Click the link to download this song)

Richard Thompson, whom Rolling Stone Magazine called one of the most important guitarists and songwriters of the 20th century, has a new album coming out this May. The headline track is called "Dad's Gonna Kill Me", a new anti-war anthem for this generation.

(And if you're too dumb to realize it, 'Dad is the new 'Nam - I.E. Baghdad, Vietnam ... If you don't get it, I'm not explaining it to you.)

I wholeheartedly recommend downloading the track linked to above. It is masterfully produced and entirely thought provoking.

Some lyrics ...

I've got a wife and kid, another on the way
I might make it home, if I can live another day
Before I came out here, I never used-ta pray
Nobody loves me here; nobody loves me here

Dad's gonna kill me
Dad's gonna kill me
Dad's gonna kill me
Dad's gonna kill me

Dad's in a bad mood; Dad's got the blues
Its someone else's mess, that I didn't choose
At least we're winning here on the Fox evening news
Nobody loves me here; nobody loves me here

Check it out, even if you are a selfish, warmongering bastard. ;O)
