I went to see my favorite living artist Steve Earle a couple nights ago in Boston with my wife. Before he came on stage, they were playing "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by The Last Poets. Then, Earle came on stage and played his new song, "The Revolution Starts Now." I said to my wife, "Wouldn't it be cool if he played the Beatles' 'Revolution'?" And damn if he didn't play it at the end of his set.
His new album is really good, especially the song "F**k the FCC". I first heard it acoustic this summer at the Newport Folk Festival, but there's nothing like hearing it cranked up. and he did the song "Condi", which is a tongue-in-cheek love song to Condoleeza Rice. Also, I got to hear my all-time favorite song, "Copperhead Road."
There's nothing like it.
