I know that for those of you in New York, your choices all were decided in September at the Primary, but there are plenty of people who read this blog from around the country.

So my call for election-related music brought out various interesting suggestions. From Tim McDonough a call for "Our Candidate" by World/Inferno Friendship Society (don't worry, I hadn't heard of them either.) From Andy at Circles of Concrete, "Policies" by Pete Yorn and "My Own Country" by Pennywise. And from the incomparable Thom Campbell, "President Gas" by the Psychedelic Furs and one of the finest songs ever written, "Beyond Belief" by Elvis Costello.

While I was thinking about old folk songs yesterday, I decided to just continue down that road with two by Pete Seeger.
