“Political Song For Michael Jackson To Sing”

Uncategorized

This one chugs along with a pretty straight forward rhythm. Stopping at the end of each verse for a lyrical punctuation: “I must look like a dork!”
And just before probably every Minutemen fans favorite D. Boon guitar solo: “If we heard mortar shells, we’d cuss more in our songs and cut down the guitar solos!” Wham!
Free-flowing lyrics from Mike Watt. Politics vs Art? Jabs at sloganeering punkers? I don’t know. It’s shit from an old notebook. Killer tune.
Too bad Michael Jackson never recorded it. (Mike Watt did send it to him!)
