Lyrical History

(*Editor's note: I couldn't decide on a single song for TGIF Tunes, which has more to do with how tired I was yesterday and less to do with a lack of options, so I'll return to that feature next Friday.)

I've always found it fascinating when popular music attempts to take an historical event and tell it to a new generation. My kid brother pointed out this song to me and I find it not only historically accurate, but rather poignant at a time when xenophobia and racism is plastered on evening news stories about the origination of the swine flu. Please watch this video and share it with your friends.
