(June 11, 2013): Joe Jackson – Evil Empire

From the 1989 album, Blaze of Glory.  A song directed at the Reagan years, but that still resonates in so many ways, especially following the revelations of the secret NSA surveillance and PRISM.  As Jackson sings, “you can’t fight them with songs, but think of this as just a tiny blow against the empire.”  I will move on to a different theme tomorrow.
