“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

What's in Ed's iPod?

So with the nation perpetually at war, Washington in crisis over healthcare, and Jen Aniston maybe or maybe not pregnant, you must be wondering like me, "Where did it all go wrong"?

But why ponder the Hegelian dialectic that defines our world when you can escape with some fly tunes like the ones I'm listening to. You could do a lot worse than sitting back in your tiny office cubicle and wasting your employer's valuable work time listening to these musical stylings from the alternative genre:

Divine Fits
The National
Cold War Kids
We As Human
Kate Walsh
The Fratellis
Of Monsters and Men

"Hurray" is by far my best find lately. Maybe not for everyone but I certainly like it.

Leadbelly is old-time country blues. However he inspired many later musicians.
