bonnie -- Another part of the "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" story is that Reagan starred in a 1951 movie called "Bedtime for Bonzo", Bonzo being a chimpanzee. Many of us felt that this was one of Reagan's main qualifications for the high offices he eventually achieved. There was a sequel called "Bonzo Goes to College", but our future governor and president wasn't in that one.

One of my favorite protest songs performed by Spanky and Our Gang: "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?", 1967

Another from Spanky & Our Gang, which YouTube displayed: "Give a Damn", 1968

In celebration of America's final 2016 presidential "debate", which ended about an hour ago, here are three from the Fugs.

Note: Bad language ahead.

"C.I.A. Man", The Village Fugs Sing Ballads of Contemporary Protest, Point of Views, and General Dissatisfaction (aka The Fugs First Album), 1965

"Kill for Peace", The Fugs, 1966

"Dover Beach", Tenderness Junction, 1968 

The lyrics are from the poem by Matthew Arnold:
... And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

Congratulations to the Cleveland Indians for winning the American League pennant this year, and to all residents of Cleveland, and because t. bedford appreciates the music of Phil Ochs, who could have been from Cleveland but wasn't:

"One More Parade", All the News That's Fit to Sing, 1964

"Draft Dodger Rag" and "Here's to the State of Mississippi", I Ain't Marching Anymore, 1965

"White Boots Marching in a Yellow Land", Tape From California, 1968

And for a more upbeat ending:

"Power and Glory", All the News That's Fit to Sing, 1964

The lady doth protest too much, methinks
~ Shakespeare's "Hamlet"

GOLD -- Neil Young

SILVER -- Carl Wilson

BRONZE -- Jamiroquai  (too bad he got "typecast" by the hit "Virtual Insanity")

TIN -- Newsboys

I avoided the Wednesday nite debate like the plague. However, via channel surfin', caught a few seconds right around the "puppet" business. Stephen Colbert has a fine re-enactment around the 7-minute mark here (And yes indeed..."THAT was less juvenile than the debate"):

Thanks, Cindy!

The environment:

Maybe a feminist protest - and maybe not

Hey, Arlo protested the War (we all know it so no video)
Protesting the grind:

Early economic protest - or story of it?

Protest on the Sunset Strip (Neil's on it)

Gold - Newsboys
Silver - Carl
Bronze - Jamiroquai
Tinner - Neil

For Lisa

Marlon protested:

I just protest THIS guy:

I do NOT protest THIS guy (on lead vocal and bass)

Thanks to Larry, Lee, John  B., Kds, tBedford, Pete, David, Lisa and Al for your votes.

While I'm here, I'm going to go ahead and get mine in...

GOLD:  Guilty by the Newsboys.  Some great talent and a powerful message.

SILVER:  Of The Times by Carl Wilson.  Love the incredible voice of Carl's and the economy has always left me broke.

BRONZE:  When You Gonna Learn by Jamiroquai.  Glad I found this one!

TIN/PEWTER:  Let's Impeach the President by Neil Young.  I can agree with him on the issue, but other than Heart of Gold and Southern Man, I really never got into much of his music.

My final answer.

Some of his C S N and Young material is pretty solid Cindy but I hear you.  A L O T of his solo output, of which there is a TON, is often hard to listen to.  He sure is a HUGE Brian fan though.  But then who isn't?

Oh ya... ... ...'him'.[rolleyes]

Probably my favourite John Lennon protest song from an album full of them...

It's funny, but I agree completely, despite the fact that Neil Young is my second favorite musician. That's why I said earlier that sometimes he forgets the musical aspect. I could have said "often" instead of "sometimes". But the ton of music he's made includes so much great stuff that for me it outweighs the bad stuff, of which there is A LOT.

These are the first two tracks from Living With War, the 2006 album that includes "Let's Impeach the President":

"After the Garden" and "Living With War"


"The Needle and the Damage Done", Farm Aid, 1995

"Ohio", Live at Massey Hall, 1971
