We have pre-ordered our copy of Neil Young's new protest album "Living with War". You can get it too at Amazon at this link.
Read his blog here.
In case you have not heard about this, Neil Young has pushed out this album in record speed and with MAJOR record company backing. It features the song "Let's Impeach the President."
Young is also pushing it out into the cyberspace as a free listen and you can get a stream of the entire album at this link.
As Young says at his site, foreign media have been predicting that this album would get no play in the US, a rational assumption considering the lock that Clear Channel and other pro-Bush pro-war multi-national conglomerates has on all aspects of our media.
Thankfully major radio stations ARE playing this album. KLOS in LA played the album IN ITS ENTIRETY, with no commercials, on a recent Saturday AND Sunday.
If you are so inclined, please host the free listening option at your blog/site by going to this link (recommended by the Neil Young site) and post something for your readers to consider.
"Lets Impeach the President" - Lyrics
Let's impeach the president for lying
And leading our country into war
Abusing all the power that we gave him
And shipping all our money out the door
He's the man who hired all the criminals
The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors
And bend the facts to fit with their new stories
Of why we have to send our men to war
Let's impeach the president for spying
On citizens inside their own homes
Breaking every law in the country
By tapping our computers and telephones
What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees
Would New Orleans have been safer that way
Sheltered by our government's protection
Or was someone just not home that day?
Let's impeach the president
For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected
Dividing our country into colors
And still leaving black people neglected
Thank god he's racking down on steroids
Since he sold his old baseball team
There's lot of people looking at big trouble
But of course the president is clean
Thanks for reading!
