Of course "Revolution" is politically .. let's say less than radical: "if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao/you an't gonna make it with anyone anyhow" - but the American Legion tried to get it banned from the airwaves. And "Born in the USA" is a protest song, but Reagan (I think) tried to adopt it. And "I Will Always Love You" is a breakup song, played at half of the wedding receptions I've attended. Nobody listens to lyrics.
Liberal - leftwing guy who preferred Reagan to Carter in 1980? Sounds like a Massachusetts voter!
Memo to Todd Feinberg: start playing "Revolution" as WRKO show's lead-in music, suggest as new Tea Party anthem (thereby irritating Tom Petty).
Memo to newspaper editors: assign babyboomer columnist to write navel-gazing column about the nuance and ambiguity of Lennon, what it means for the next Presidential election, and how great those old Beatles songs were/are.
