Love song to America

Post by Rob » Wed Nov 11, 2009 5:55 pm

I saw Michelle Shocked last week, in an intimate venue in Cardiff, and she was tremendous. She sang this (new) song. She addresses the USA as if she was talking to someone she is in a failing relationship with. Well worth a listen.

Thanks so much for that...I've played it several times. I bought "Anchorage" on 12 inch vinyl when it was released, but never gave Michelle Shocked another thought until now. I've just been reading interviews on the net, and it's clear she's been through a lot of interesting changes. This deserves a mention here too (though perhaps it should go in the politiccs section?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ttd5PgrO ... re=related

All good things, John E
