Shut Up and Sing, Part II.
This should be filed under "Be Careful What You Wish For."
Back when every true American thought the Iraq war was a swell idea, radio talk show trull Laura Ingraham wrote a book that billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife bought up by the bushel. This book, aimed at Hollywood entertainers, was called Shut Up and Sing.
Cue Neil Young.
Jonathan Demme, who filmed the recent documentary Neil Young: Heart of Gold, reports that, “Neil just finished writing and recording – with no warning – a new album called Living With War ... a brilliant electric assault, accompanied by a 100-voice choir, on Bush and the war in Iraq. Truly mind blowing. Will be in stores soon.”
The featured track is titled “Impeach the President.”
Shut up and sing, indeed.
