This song notes that the most important result of modern politics is “all the hilarity on Saturday Night Live”. I am not sure that I am that pessimistic about our political system. But, I will say that Colbert, John Stewart, SNL, and the Top Ten Lists can be more enlightening and compelling than most political debates. (And, that list comes from someone who does not own a TV). – KW
Excerpt from the lyrics:
Happy to Be Here
by Todd Snider
All of my neighbors are all up in arms
About something they saw on TV.
Seems some politician got busted for something
That won’t make any difference to me…
The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
