Rock Cookie Bottom

The artist in the Jerks and Idiots post was named Jonathan Mann. He is some guy from somewhere. He has decided that he will be making a song a day for a year for some reason. Here is his website.

Anyways, I figured I would make a post about it because I have heard from a couple of people that they do not want to listen because he can't shit gold 365 days a year. So I figured I would go through the pile of turds and find the gold nuggets for you. Man, I love torturing metaphors.

There's So Much To Know- I love this song because of the lyrics solely, the guitar is alright but simple.

You're All Right, Isaac Newton- There are some real forced rhymes with this song, but any song that posits that Isaac Newton was an alien and he didn't know it is alright with me.

A Letter to the Killer of George Tiller- I love this song, just wholesale, I downloaded it from some mp3 conversion site for youtube and listen to it on my iPod. This song is that awesome.

Your mileage may vary.

Hey Paul Krugman (A Song, A Plea)- This song is ok but the chorus of the song gets stuck in my head every couple hours now. It's really good. And I kind of agree with the politics.

Embedding disabled but here is the link.

Don't Give In to Madness- I'm not a communist but my grandaddy was.

Swine Flu: The Musical- Please, media, just leave me the hell alone.

Cannabis Criminalization: A Shorth History In Song- Exactly what it sounds like.

I am Israel, I am Palestine- This is a pretty good song that follows the general anti-war formula. He is influenced by Bob Dylan though after all.

Torture Memos: Waterboarding- This is one of my favorites. A song using the exact language from John Yoo's memos legally justifying torture.

You're Doing it Right, John Stewart- A paean to John Stewart for ultimate Jewish justice.

Well, that's about it. I haven't listened to all 170 songs of his but those are my favorites right now.

  1. I fucking hate dork rock. I did like the waterboarding song a lot though. The cannibus song was ok as well.
