A question we hope we never have to ask

To me the standout song (and its powerful and moving video) is Richard Barone's “Hey Can I Sleep On Your Futon?” which cuts straight to the heart of the whole “Occupy” movement through the voices of ordinary, well-meaning Americans who've been screwed over by a system that has no use for them. Richard speaks for the Army Vet, the Chick Singer, the Student afraid to open the Loan bills, the laid-off Lehman cube-dweller, and possibly even you and me though we may not know it yet. And when he sings of buying our buddies another inexpensive Pabst PBR in the hope they'll let us crash on their futon till things get better, he addresses head-on a fear all of us have deep down. Richard Barone has been writing Pop gems for a very long time now, and kids today may be unfamiliar with his early work with The Bongos and his subsequent solo career (and if so you owe it to yourself to check out his catalog here on iTunes). But what makes this track possibly more memorable than the other equally passionate songs on this wonderful compilation, is that it's a brilliant pop single that just HAPPENS to be about an incredibly heavy subject. It's a bit of a stretch to compare it to “Born In The USA” (by another Jersey boy) but it's got that same hit-song feel with mainstream appeal but when you stop to listen to the lyrics you suddenly realize there's a whole lot more going on in the song than the catchy hooks, and there's a very serious story being told. Here's hoping it's a question none of us have to ever ask.

Non-value-add swearing enough to warm Rush's heart

The album's main problem is that it contains some songs with a lot of vulgar swearing. When I was a kid we learned the protest songs of Pete Seeger in school. But this album is not something you can show your kids. I think it also harms progressives in two ways: 1) It will be red meat for the Right who say those concerned about the sins of banks have no morals. 2) There's some quote that swearing is for those who've run out of effective arguments

Occupy This Album

Matt Pless' "Something's Got To Give" says it all!
