Let me tell you a question…


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?
