Beer and Presidential Choices (Tuesday Tunes)

The United States presidential campaign is in full swing, the theme of "Christ For President," if not its literal interpretation, seems to be appropriate. This version is by Wilco (mp3 link), from their April 4, 1999 show. and was originally released on Mermaid Avenue, their collaboration with Billy Bragg and the departed, yet still timely voice of Woody Guthrie.

"We don't like gambling or chasing women, but we love our Lord and Pabst Blue Ribbon." The second song this week always makes me smile, "Drinking Beer For Jesus," (mp3 link) by Deral Fenderson, underappreciated musical genius of our time (and self-proclaimed "cooler than Graham Smith" of Kleenex Girl Wonder). For more beer songs, try this Russian site I found while Googling Mr. Fenderson (now there's the name for a teen comedy): Beer Songs In RealAudio and MP3.
