Soundtrack for the Revolution 2006

It took until I moved to Los Angeles to really love the political process and so with Election Day less than a month away here are two playlists to get you ready to take back democracy. I really wanted to publish mine on iTunes but even though I think all the songs are available, except for this version of Rockin' in the Free World, it wouldn't register but like half of them.

My Soundtrack for the Revolution:
1. Anarchy In The U.K. — Sex Pistols
2. Fight The Power — Public Enemy
3. Fortunate Son — John Fogerty (live)
4. Master Of War — Pearl Jam (covering Bob Dylan)
5. Take It From The Source — Spirit Of The West
6. A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall — Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians (covering Dylan)
7. It's A Hit — Rilo Kiley
8. Not Ready To Make Nice — Dixie Chicks
9. Rockin' in the Free World — Indigo Girls w/ K's Choice (live)
10. Mosh — Eminem
11. Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2) — Pink Floyd
12. When the President Talks to God — Bright Eyes
13. The Rising — Bruce Springsteen
14. Philadelphia — Neil Young
15. City Of Blinding Lights — U2
16. It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) — R.E.M.

Raise a drink to re-earning our position on the moral high ground by honoring and respecting other countries, not torturing people, being active stewards of the Earth and by combatting domestic and international hypocrisy.

Vote (democrat)!

Democrat? How about just voting for common sense on either side of the aisle... There's plenty of idiots in both parties. We need to find the handful of good ones in EITHER.

Good sound tracks though.

How are you going to vote on the energy Prop in CA this year?
