Song Lyric Sunday — The Cars and The Chicks

When I saw Jim Adams picked cool/freeze/heat/melt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme, I had every intention of sharing “Cool Fool,” a Cars anomaly co-written by Ric Ocasek and Elliot Easton.

Then a stunning video scrolled onto my Facebook feed.  “March March” is one-half of a double-whammy, released June 25, the same day the Dixie Chicks dropped “dixie” and became The Chicks. A protest song from their current “Gaslighter” album, “March March” hits today’s hot button issues — gun control, global warming, women’s rights, lies masquerading as truth, and racism. The last minute is a gut punch that stopped me cold. Read the lyrics here later. Give the video your full attention. “’If your voice held no power, they wouldn’t try to silence you.’ – unknown. Use your VOICE. Use your VOTE.”

  1. It’s been years since I listened to “The Chicks” and I know they’re not shy about using their music to send a message, but this… and the lyrics leave me absolutely speechless. And I agree, the last minute is a gut punch…and heartbreaking.

    Powerful share, my friend!
