A George Harrison masterpiece with a famous guitar riff (which was actually played by Paul McCartney): “If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street / If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat / If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat / If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.”
It's like they looked into the future and saw the UK in 2006!

Personally, it never occurred to me to label songs as conservative or liberal. What's the point? I'm from the Beavis & Butthead School of Rock. There are only songs which majestically rock--or songs that suck.

And speaking of songs that suck, the next 50 "conservative songs" is out and another U2 song has made the list.

“The Playboy Mansion,” by U2.
Not a place worth visiting: “Then will there be no time for sorrow / Then will there be no time for shame / Then will there be now time for shame / Then will there be now time for pain.”

Here's a guy from the National Review talking about it on Fox And Friends. That's funny. He disses Neil Young too

The article's a parody in the Stephen Colbert vein. But I guess you weren't able to "analyze" that and "missed the point".

Since The National Review is known to be a conservative publication I would highly doubt that.

Or maybe they aren't twisting those songs and it is actually a parody. Maybe they actually have a sense of humor *falls off chair*

Of coarse the author is having a bit of fun when he uses lyrics from older songs in order to take a swipe at a few tenets of liberalism in the 21st century. Like Che chic or anti-capitalism masquerading as environmentalism. That's National Review's raison d'être. But unlike Colbert, who feigns conservatism in order to mock it, the author is not pretending to be anybody. He's just a rock fan who happens to write for a conservative magazine.

Conservative-Rock. I think everyone on this thread "got" the oxymoron. But then again, who thought rock 'n' roll would age?

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
