Five Songs, Part 50

I’d be lying if I didn’t say Occupy Wall Street, and its (so far) triumph of man over (political and economic) machinery, wasn’t on my mind this week. Imagine — having the nerve to stage a protest without getting someone’s permission! And without any media coverage that wasn’t dismissive.

(And BTW, speaking of media: Can we stop calling NPR “public radio” once and for all? They went nine days before they covered this. NPR is “National Public Radio” as much as Volkswagen is “The People’s Car” these days.)

So it did creep, some, of course, but not totally, into this week’s Five Songs. (There is that shout-out to my Tiger-loving, Yankee-hating friends after last night …) Enjoy …

For What It’s Worth — Buffalo Springfield

What’s the Buzz — From Jesus Christ Superstar

It’s a Happening — The Magic Mushrooms

Detroit Rock City — Kiss

Pig Is a Pig — The Plasmatics

    I had to post “Power to the People” on my site a few days ago, in tribute to Occupy Wall Street (the fact that it was Lennon’s 71st b’day was another excuse).

    Power to the people!!
