    Eric Swalwell: "Caught Up in the Country," Rodney Atkins


I have no idea why Swalwell thinks he can pull this off.

And Mayor Pete's pick seems kind of edgy to me.
never heard that before, but sounds like what AI would do if it was asked to create a Nash-vegas song
(just watched the video... at the end is pure fiction that would be the crowd that shows up at an Atkins show)

I had to look up Pete's too...kinda edgy, but I'm a little shocked he didn't come out to a Mellencamp song

I had to look up a bunch of these, including Mayor Petes.  I actually found this exercise more telling than I thought.  I just don't think Swalwell pulls off country boy very authentically.

As for Mayor Pete, I just think it's weird signaling.

And of course Bernie picking the Lennon Power to the People says everything about him.  If he'd picked Curtis Mayfield I think the signal would have been better (and yes, I realize this is Iowa)

Trump has convinced 40% of the country that his lies are true... so it's not inconceivable that you could change my mind about
"Old Town Road."  Make your case.

my cringing has less to do with the song itself, and more about its selection and who selected it.

Funny I was going the other way of thinking and he should’ve done Patti Smith's people have the power

  Make your case.
I think you have been called out and I'm interested in your response.

I'm on the road and will give this a listen, until thenthis article sums up most of my thoughts.

It bucks all traditions, from how it was made, how it was marketed, how it was released, how its video was made and distributed, its viral aspects, and so on.  It's an insanely catchy ditty made by a nineteen year old kid at home that nobody can put in a box, pissed everybody off and it's ABSOLUTELY fucking outlaw brilliant.

I get that and I'm impressed by the non-musical aspect
Especially the cross-genre aspect that really hasn't been breached since DMC/Areosmith's 'Walk this way'
honestly I'm still shocked that 98% of music is still coming from the 'system' and more small self-made acts aren't getting attention with the ability to distribute for free for over a decade

it's slightly catchy tune, but after 3 listens, I've heard it more that I ever wanted to hear it

That link in Excon pod cast is killer too
