A terrible song for the horrible America-Iraq situation:

It's the final countdown - Europe

Or what about: What's Going On? That's for the strange political crisis Holland is in.

How about 'Jive Talkin' by the Bee Gees.

Let's face it - that Moog bass line rocks.

There's a wealth of Randy Newman material timely for this year.

"Rednecks" for Trent Lott

"It's Money That I Love" for Enron, Worldcom, and Global Crossing execs

"My Life Is Good" for Martha Stewart

"You Can Leave Your Hat On" for Christina Agualera

"I Love LA" for the Lakers fans on the board

And then, there's...

Political Science
No one likes us, I don't know why
We may not be perfect, but heaven knows we try
But all around, even our old friends put us down
Let's drop the big one and see what happens

We give them money, but are they grateful?
No, they're spiteful and they're hateful
They don't respect us, so let's surprise them
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them

Asia's crowded and Europe's too old
Africa is far too hot
And Canada's too cold
And South America stole our name
Let's drop the big one
There'll be no one left to blame us

We'll save Australia
Don't wanna hurt no kangaroo
We'll build an All American amusement park there
They got surfin', too

Boom goes London and boom Paree
More room for you and more room for me
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh, how peaceful it will be
We'll set everybody free
You'll wear a Japanese kimono
And there'll be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow
So let's drop the big one now
Let's drop the big one now

All round, all purpose: War's "The World Is A Ghetto".

Modernity overload: Parliament's "Fantasy Is Reality (in the world today)".

Philosophic spirit redemption: Parliament's "Everything Is On The One".

I'll dedicate a rarely-thought-of Bad Company tune to 2002:

"Gone, Gone, Gone"

I don't know if I'm happy, don't know if I'm sad,
I don't know if I'll cry, I don't know if I'll die laughing.

Did I have an ambivalent year? Yes and no. \:\)

Yes. Autechre and Boards of Canada made good new music in 2002. I can't think of a single other relase off the top of my head..

Dang...somebody remembers Bad Company. Hmmm. Must be old like me.

What about "Dick in the Dirt" for OBL, when and if they find him.

"The Eastern world it is explodin',
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'.
You're old enough to kill
But not for votin'.

And you tell me,
over and over and over again,
You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.'" - "The Eve of Destruction" by Barry McGuire

This song came out when I was in high school and we were all worried about nutty nations with nukes and little wars in far away places.

For the Democrats it would be "Can't Get Started"

For George its hard to choose. There are so many possibilities.

I thought of "Pretty Vacant" for his economic policy.

Or "Give me the men" from Desert Song for his militarism.

But I think "Should I stay or should I go" (The Clash) is the winner for the war (or peace) on Iraq.

Yes "Should I stay or should I go" is a good idea .

This doesn't describe 2002 but a tune titled "Do You Realize?" by, of all bands, the Flaming Lips (I've never liked anything I heard by them previously) has made a big impression on me by, IMHO, introducing a comparatively deep philosophic concept to popular current pop music.
