Alice Cooper - Elected (1972)

Hi to my  dear American visitors (you are the majority here), and a little gift for your election day (we had ours in France last May and it was a fucking joke too, absolutely nonsense). Eternal fool's game isn't it? Where are the Alice Cooper of our times? Nowhere. Where are parody, sarcasm, derision in today's rock? Nowhere. Some pitiful web jokes, nothing venimous and anarchist as were Alice and his boys or later on Jello Biafra or the Sex Pistols. Shit times. Get me back to the seventies (moreover I was young and it's not a small reason to get back there). Nothing to download. You got all the song don't you? And sure WB would ask for my blog to be shut immediately. That's how things are going in our 1984-like (and not liked) era.

  I'm your top prime cut of meat, I'm your choice, I wanna be elected, I'm your yankee doodle dandy in a gold Rolls Royce, I wanna be elected, Kids want a saviour, don't need a fake, I wanna be elected, We're all gonna rock to the rules that I make, I wanna be elected, elected, elected. I never lied to you, I've always been cool, I wanna be elected, I gotta get the vote, and I told you 'bout school, I wanna be elected, elected, elected, Hallelujah, I wanna be selected, Everyone in the United States of America. We're gonna win this one, take the country by storm, We're gonna be elected, You and me together, young and strong, We're gonna be elected, elected, elected, Respected, selected, call collected, I wanna be elected, elected. "And if I am elected I promise the formation of a new party A third party, the Wild Party! I know we have problems, We got problems right here in Central City, We have problems on the North, South, East and West, New York City, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Everybody has problems, And personally, I don't care."
