Subject: RE: Republican or Conservative folk singers
I think all music's political. Except some (a lot of what is called 'folk music') is more honest about it.

Songs about how the purpose of life is to look good enough or say the right things that will get you the 'chick' (or the guy).   Or how life isn't worth living once that significant other (who defines you) disappears. That's political, is it not?

Most vapid pop music is, from my perspective, 'conservative' in that it avoids looking at how we can truly enhance the lives of all of us in a meaningful way.

Isn't it great that we can find some music that doesn't do that?
