Yassssss thanks heaps for this post. Glad to see some altenatives to the current crop. Good place to mention that the ubiquity of This Land Is Your Land has been called out by many Native women on twitter as feeling quite thoughtless and excluding. Just something to keep in mind.

Also this is where I stump for Nobody Speak?

Multicellular Exothermic's post reminds me of the one joke that made me LOL in the recent Ricky Gervaise movie. When the rapper Brent has hired to play on his UK tour talks about how now he knows how the brothers in UB40 must have felt.

More funk

Get up, get into it, get involved.

There's a lot of Chocolate Cities around.

I always loved Pete's "Wasn't That a Time?" because he celebrated the courage of ordinary Americans.
