9-6-08 TV Smith – Only One Flavour

Posted by Sean on September 6, 2008

Well, you’re kind to compliment my ranting, Shanoah. Problem is, it’s something that I can’t keep up all the time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t know how these political bloggers do it, day in and day out, writing about stuff that so obviously pisses them off.

Plus there’s the fact that I feel like I’m being played… that someone, or something, is distracting us with the drama of the election to put into motion something sinister, maybe several somethings. fnord

The blow-up over Sarah Palin only confirms my fears. Why did the Republicans pull a stunt like this? Everyone’s looking at Palin and leaving their flanks and their sixes unwatched. Something’s going to happen, something nasty. Maybe it already has. fnord

I can’t help but think that the great drama of our democracy is just that: sound and thunder, signifying nothing. TV Smith, who once fronted The Adverts, knows how I feel. Here’s Smith with Die Toten Hosen singing Only One Flavour, off 2001’s Useless: The Best of TV Smith.

Lyrics and guitar tabs at here. Sing along.
