In a world filled with political singer/songwriters I lean towards The Clash but The Rolling Stones’ gem of a ditty “Salt of the Earth” seems to best sum up the current US presidential race.
“Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let’s drink to the uncounted heads
Let’s think of the wavering millions
Who need leaders but get gamblers instead
Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio”
Who, if anyone, puts your political leanings to song? Why?
