44. Randy Newman - Political Science

Found on: Sail Away (1972)
Picked by: JG

Like many a protest song, Political Science is eerily and unfortunately applicable to our current times. In it, Randy suggests the U.S.A. drop the A-bomb on every other country so no one will disagree with us. If you can remove it from the fact that Dick Cheney probably listens to this without recognizing the satire, it's actually a very funny song, especially when Newman suggests we save Australia because of the kangaroos.
