    Some folks don't like r(s) and some folks don't like h(s). ;-)

    Not very YES-like, really is it? Whole different vein than Show Me.

    Go Screw Yourself actually came out of the shouting matches during the collapsed Paris sessions. ;-)

    Well, The Wold is an area in England. Maybe the song is more parochial than we thought?

    Maybe he means Harry Chapin’s former radio station.

    This piece had some nice things in it - some surprises here and there. I wonder who the players are on it - this is not Anderson in his garage with a harp.

    I preferred Anderson's material back in the day when I had no idea what he was talking about.

    The YouTube version claims that it is the "Election Edit" (same length as the Facebook video). What is this edited from? Is there some longer, non-election version of this song?

    Heard a couple minutes of the song. Awful. Just awful. And now it's stuck in my head.

    We've seen Yesmen in US election campaigns before. This Trevor Horn-produced song was used, with permission, by the Obama campaign:
