Bacharach? Say it ain't so!


Oh, I dunno, I think there are plenty of songs that would work great for McCain campaign ads.

For example, Skinny Puppy's "Deep Down Trauma Hounds" (From their album Cleanse, Fold, and Manipulate):

holding his hands
dream the whole week
radiance hissing rodent speak
elective evil once started
shot struck home so it goes

inches towards flattened back
on all fours drawn and racked
doesn't mean a thing

nature perverts itself so it goes
so what the hell let it grow
regret so full of haste coming clear
piss in blood


Then there's that nifty little ditty "Killing Games" from Skinny Puppy's album Last Rights:

Fallen angel head crashes dead out of control
Lost memories staircase twists
Darker rooms lit with left out toys
After playing mean changes toys into tools
Twisted playthings on the staircase fools
Fools weapons represents the killing game
Who taught the killing game
Who taught the killing game

(and so forth)

Tons 'o songs out there that'd fit McCain ads. Pearl Jams' "Do the evolution":

I'm ahead, I'm a man
I'm the first mammal to wear pants, yeah
I'm at peace with my lust
I can kill cause in God I trust, yeah
It's evolution, baby

I'm at piece, Im the man
Buying stocks on the day of the crash
On the loose, Im a truck
All the rolling hills, I'll flatten em out, yeah
It's herd behavior, uh huh
It's evolution, baby

(and it just goes on like that. The music video is even better.)

Or Napalm Death's song "Parasites" or "Scum" or "Human Garbage," oh, there's just a boatload 'o possibilities.
