Gillian Welch - Tennessee

Association is with booze, as the chorus runs in part:

It's beefsteak when I'm working
and whiskey when I'm dry

There's various other references to booze, in the the context of the temptations of the flesh.

Billy Bragg: It Says Here

A song that skewers the right-wing press in Britain, over and over again. My favourite skewer:

Could it be an infringement of the freedom of the press to print pictures of women in states of undress?

Thematic connection...

Dirty Laundry - Don Henley

(Interesting video. You have to question how effective a satire really is, when the supposed targets of the satire so gleefully take the ball and run with it.)

Which has never been worked quite as successfully by anyone as by Michael Jackson in Smooth Criminal

From another Australian soundtrack...

Skinhead from Romper Stomper

(Double-click, as possibly NSFW. Normally I wouldn't post a neo-nazi song, but I'm pretty sure that one was made up for the movie, which is anti-nazi.)

Gillian Welch & David Rawlings: Cortez the Killer

These two have been my favorite musicians for a good long while now. I'm starting to think this is it for my music taste from here to eternity. Anyway, I love their version of the Neil Young classic.
