Royal Song of the Day: Saturday 8/6/2011

Merging two stories in the news — the S&P downgrading and the loss of 38 US personnel in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan — the song for the day is “We Hate To See Them Go” by Malvina Reynolds. The song is on  Rise Up Singing., page 187. It is about a dream that “the bankers & the diplomats” would be the ones to go to war.


Lyrics sample: “The bankers & the diplomats are going in the army / It seemed too bad to keep them from the wars they love to plan…”

the video is performed by Heather Lev.
