to the tune of "On Broadway"

THEY KEEP THEIR MEMOS LOCKED UP TIGHT ON DOWNING
THEY PAY THE NEWS TO KEEP THEM OFF THE AIR
SO WHEN THE SCANDAL HIT THE STREET
AND I FOUND OUT THE TRUTH HAD LEAKED
I HOPED SOMEHOW THAT EVERYONE WOULD CARE (ON DOWNING)

THEY SAY THEY MADE THEIR CASE WITH LIES ON DOWNING
THE FACTS WERE FIXED AROUND THE POLICY
SO DO YOU THINK WE'D GO TO WAR
IF WE HAD KNOWN ALL THIS BEFORE
A HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS ISN'T FREE (ON DOWNING)

THEY SAY THIS NEWS WON'T LAST TOO LONG ON DOWNING
THEY'LL SPIN IT OFF AND MAKE IT GO AWAY
BUT THEY'RE DEAD WRONG I KNOW THEY ARE
CAUSE BUSH THIS TIME HE WENT TOO FAR
AND NOW IT'S UP TO US TO MAKE HIM PAY

THE MINUTES ARE NOT HOURS THERE ON DOWNING
BUT NOW THEY BELONG TO US ALL JUST THE SAME
SO NOW WE CANNOT WASTE OUR TIME
DON'T THINK ABOUT WHAT WORDS TO RHYME
BUT STOP THE LIARS AND THEIR CROOKED GAME

Help afterdowningstreet.org raise money with a song!

US-THE BAND (from the S.F. Bay Area) has written a truly great protest song for modern times. It's called "How Did This Country Get So Bad? (I 1 2 NO!)", and it will make you smile, clap your hands, and stomp your feet (unless you are a Bush supporter, of course!).

The song is available for a $1.00 download (plus a 33-cent PayPal transaction fee) at www.ustheband.com

And from now through July 31, 50 percent of all proceeds will be donated to afterdowningstreet.org to help spread the word about this VERY important document which proves without a doubt that Bush is guilty of an impeachable offense: sending American armed forces into war based on deliberately manufactured false evidence - that is, LIES!

but I think parodies of Broadway showtunes are simply going to make it harder for us to be taken seriously. I'm all about artistic expression, but I'm not sure what this does for us.

Anyway, with that being said, it's very clever. ;-) I just don't know if it makes people any more likely to become active (except in the theater, of course).

Here are some more songs. Maybe you'll like some of them.

We can't have a movement without songs and energy - it just won't happen. And, trust me, tightening our ties won't make GE or Viacom think of us as any more "serious."

This is how you reach THE PEOPLE> better than MSM (of ?@#%&*course), yes, even more widespread in outreach than blogs (remember, not everyone owns a PC) This is how we did it during the Vietnam War>>> songs, slogans, Cheech and Chong, love & peace, and THE TRUTH of the message got through the radio and records to ALL who heard....so loosen your tie, oh just take that tie off, then listen to "truth-tune" #5 on the list>>>"12 days of invasion"

Thank you. You said it! Music is a universal language. We will be sure to visit you website.

Thank you for the information. The songs are all great!

Thank you for your comment. It's goo to approach things different ways. We use music and art. The most important thing is that people care enough to do something!

Crazy, For your info "On Broadway" is not a show tune, It was a pop hit for the Drifters in 1963 and remade by George Benson in 1978. I don't know if it's a good tune to make into a parody but to anyone over 30 it's a very recognizable tune and any parody should be recognizable. That said it's about time somebody did something. The question is how do we get radio stations to play this.

Thank you. We like to think that good energy is never lost!

Great song... Remember the Repug playbook...the more people hear something, the more they think it is the truth.... Well, this is the truth, it just has to break into their consciousness. It is very hard to believe that your government would betray you the way these guys have.

Thank you. What you said goes along with acting as if. Music is an excellent way to do mirror back the truth!

Guys, NICE SONG!!!

It just lifts my spirits to enter the Blogosphere for a few minutes each day and remember there are other people who are just as dismayed at what America's leaders are doing to this great nation. I love my country and hate to see its greateness diminished the way it's been by these guys.

Keep the faith.

rock on,
BassGuyGG

Thank you for giving us positive support!!! We have always had faith that America is made up of good people. Let us all stand together.
