My Faves Help Me With the Election Results

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Quirky T was shocked, confused, and angered by the results of the recent election for President of the United States of America. To help me get through this tough time, I looked to my favorite musicians.

 

This was truly the “Land of Confusion” (Genesis). Before the election, I often wished some of the candidates would simply “Go Away” (Gloria Estefan). Honestly, I hope after the election some people will simply go silently away from public view. After all, with some of the candidates “Bad is Bad” (Huey Lewis and the News).

 

So now with the election results, it really will be even less fun to be an “Illegal Alien” (Genesis). After speaking to a Catholic priest, I have learned to resign myself to the situation and “Let It Be” (The Beatles). After all, I am an American and because of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, “I’m Free” (Jon Secada).

To get through this, I will rely on prayer and try to live the lyrics to “The Peace Prayer of St. Francis”.

 

Guitar Train passengers, are there songs you listen to which perfectly sum up real world events?

  1. I gather a lot of people listened to REM’s “end of the world” the day after the election. At my school, the ‘get-to-class’ music that day on the announcements, chosen by a student, was Tears For Fears “Mad world”
