Sorry, I like covers of Woody’s classic

While Mr. Anthony is no Woody Guthrie, he nails it with this working class anthem. As he recently said in an interview;

“I see the right trying to characterize me as one of their own, and I see the left trying to discredit me, I guess in retaliation. That sh*t’s gotta stop,” he continued.

The song is about all of us working stiffs and the politicians who are destroying us. Don’t read to much into it.

The song below is probably one of the most controversial songs I have ever heard, and trust me, when it was released, sh!t hit the fan, but I can’t imagine if it was released today . . .

I was very saddened by the death of Sinead O’Connor. An incredible singer and advocate of all of us in the lower bracket (Sinead’s SNL performance in which she tore up a picture of the Pope actually brought forth investigations of the Catholic Church and child abuse, molestation and sex abuse).

It had me thinking it is time to do a tribute to my favorite Irish Female Singers, Sandy, Lisa, Delores and now Sinead.

I do have a bit of fighting Irish in me, my great grandmother was half Irish and half French (which explains why I like cheese and beer so much).

And while Sinead can sing her way out of any situation, she got a lot of pans about her Reggae album, but it is actually my favorite stuff she ever did, so out of place but she made it work, I love the whole album, but this cover is amazing ; ‘If you run to the rocks, the rocks will be melting’;
