We all know Mickty and Judy could dance, but so could Jimmy Cagney he was noFred Astaire, but he could sing, dance and speak Yiddish.

I could've sworn I saw Ethel Merman sing this song among others in some TV special during the 70's. It was so memorably cheeseball that I searched desperately to post it here.

And that's all I got.

Well, that and a Flag Lapel Pin that my fellow conservatives love so much.

Here's some patriotic song derp for ya:

"I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring
Salute the ones who died

And the ones that give their lives, so we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love.....

Like our chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night"

Don't The Boss and Mellencamp both hate America? Their songs are all ironic. Just like REM's "Shining Happy People" is actually about suicide.

Shaggy_C: REM's "Shining Happy People" is actually about suicide.


I thought it wasn't about anything. From what I heard they presented most of "Out Of Time" to the record company, and they said they needed at least one happy, catchy song or they wouldn't have a hit song.

So REM wrote the song as a fark you to the record company.

Not so sure about actually hating America, maybe just a realization that all isn't perfect in the "greatest" nation? Love it, or leave it, or pen a catchy tune and make millions...

Holy shiat, that song's the 18th century version of Let's Get Drunk and Screw, isn't it? I never saw those lyrics before, I'd only read that it was an "old drinking song".

I think you're thinking it's a little bit dirtier than it actually was. The Anacreontic Society wasn't so much singing in beer halls as in wine bars.

To quote from Wikipedia:

The Anacreontic Society was a popular gentlemen's club of amateur musicians in London founded in the mid-18th century. These barristers, doctors, and other professional men named their club after the Greek court poet Anacreon, who lived in the 6th century B.C. and whose poems, "anacreontics", were used to entertain patrons in Teos and Athens. Dubbed "the convivial bard of Greece", Anacreon's songs often celebrated women, wine, and entertaining.

While the society's membership, one observer noted, was dedicated to "wit, harmony, and the god of wine," their primary goal (beyond companionship and talk) was to promote an interest in music. The society presented regular concerts of music, and included among their guests such important musicians as Joseph Haydn, who was the special guest at their concert in January 1791.

American Woman has to be the most patriotic song ever. They play it during their big fireworks show here every year without a hint of irony.

/not this version though, the Lenny Kravitz one...
