An Early Clue to the New Direction (First Obama Era Edition)

From 1971, here's extremely poor man's Crosby Stills and Nash the insufferable America with their evergreen annoyance "A Horse With No Name."



I believe the late great comedian Richard Jeni said it best: "You're in the desert. You got nothing else to do. Name the freakin' horse!"

In any case, as always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

None of the above, but it does have something to do with the lyric.

Gummo said...

Songs with painfully ungrammatical lyrics?

Most stupid lyric lines in post-Elvis Pop/Rock songs? (In this such case, "The heat was hot")

Randy Newman once said this song was about a kid who thinks he's taken acid.

And originally this was going to be a clue about drug songs until I checked and found I had already done that list a few months ago.

Steve, the kindness of my progressive friends took care of that sting! I promise to return the favor by supporting my new President with grace and polite disagreement where warranted.

I would be all cocky about getting two in a row, but you handed this one to us after we floundered.

Have a great weekend you guys!
