BTC: Come together

by Aaron Wherry

Let’s all parties agree here and now to support the arts.

Because if they don’t, the artists will be angry.

And if the artists are angry, there will only be more songs like this.

Let us promise now not to leave our children a world where crap protest songs are tolerated.

BTC: Come together

  1. C’mon…the line “dressing it up with a sweater” was pretty good, as far as this type of thing goes. But then, what do I know? I stopped listening to music in the early 90′s.

  2. “But then, what do I know? I stopped listening to music in the early 90’s.”

    So did the producers of this song, apparently.

    Also…

    Bagpipes? Really?

  3. What struck me about this was it’s a protest song encouraging people to vote against a candidate (Harper). Whereas in the U.S., artists released a protest song encouraging people to vote for a candidate (Obama). How very Canadian.

  4. I know it’s Ed Robertson’s style, but his rap-esque verse makes him come across as the stereotypical lame white dude trying to be cool. It can be pulled off in a song like “One Week,” but here it just sounds awkward.

    And yeah, I agree with Sean. Bagpipes… necessary?

  5. I know it’s Ed Robertson’s style, but his rap-esque verse makes him come across as the stereotypical lame white dude trying to be cool.

    I’m sure he’s looking at his bank account and crying right now. Actually, he might be…

  6. No.
    No!
    NO!
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    It’s taken the better part of two and a half decades to get “Tear are not enough” out of my system.

    I’M NOT GOING TO LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!!

  7. Way better song–look up “stumping tom connors” and “NDP” on You Tube. The song is “I’m stickin’ with the NDP”

  8. I blame Harper.

    And was “If I had a Rocket Launcher” unavailable? The rights tied up perhaps? Probably saving it for a sitcom’s theme song.
