Ungh….a number of the songs are stretches to be called conservative. Having said that, some really great ones were missed:
Being a Joe Jackson fan, I’d argue that “Stepping Out” and “Slow Song” would qualify for inclusion.
“Don’t Tread on Me” by Damn Yankees as opposed to the Metallica version.
“The Valley Road” by Bruce Hornsby. While Hornsby’s a man of the left, his take on interracial/class abortion in the pre-capitalist South is fairly prolife.
“Philadelphia Freedom” by Elton John. Though I like the Hall and Oates version better.
This is infuriating because I was writing my own list!
And some of the choices are clearly there only make it seem “hip.”
It’s funny you quote Neil Young considering his new album and upcoming tour.
It’s also a sad state of the free world when a incumbant President made the public sign a loyalty pledge to attend a campaign event. Nothing seems terribly free about that. Certainly, it’s not free thought.
