Friday Five – Songs for Blago

Sorry Mr. Blagojevich, you have to join the ranks of nearly 4.8 million other unemployed U.S. workers today. But in the meantime, here’s a list just for you!

Wave goodbye to the corrupt politician boys & girls!

Wave goodbye to the corrupt politician boys & girls!

Is Anybody Listening – Queensryche * : actually yes. Not only did they listen to his conversations, they recorded them & played them back during the trial which is what ultimately led to his removal from office!

Step Right Up – Tom Waits: one of the most talked about allegations was Rod’s attempt to basically sell Obama’s vacant Senate seat.

Lies – Violent Femmes: A very appropriate tune for the Big B, since it’s not only about lies, it even mentions poetry reading!

Bad Reputation – Joan Jett & the Blackhearts: which is exactly what he will have the rest of his life whether he is convicted on the criminal charges or not.

Looking For A Job – Todd Snider: after yesterday’s vote to remove him from office, looking for a job is exactly what Mr. Blagojevich needs to start doing today.

* (for the record, this song is not on my iPod, but the title fit so well I had to use it – I almost went with Danity Kane’s song of the same name – it’s just as bad, but they are nicer to look at!)
