20. Funny, I hear "These Are Days" and I remember Bill Clinton in 1992.

Like, we'd had 12 years of Reagan-Bush, and all of a sudden there was this optimism... there was a Democrat who might actually WIN.

I realize, though, it's not superficially the most political song. Stand- I had a flash some time in 1989 while listening to that song that it was BRILLIANT because it was a genius song--- in part by masquerading as a really stupid one.

Drugs may have been involved.

But say what you will about R.E.M., or Natalie Merchant, they kept at it and they have a diverse body of work to show for it. I can't spend a ton of time criticizing S O'C's work, but I do feel her current thing with Miley smacks of opportunism. And once it became clear that her "concern" wasn't appreciated, she should have backed off and not "doubled down" yargle bargle.

JMHO.
