Tune of the Week: Good-bye

I tried to find a song to celebrate the sacking of Don Imus this week. After years of being subjected to this man's racist, mysoginistic bilge, we can finally close the book on him.

Try as I might, I couldn't find anything really appropriate, save the very simple and forthright...

"Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, good-bye!"

(song and lyrics by Gary DeCarlo, Dale Frashauer, and Paul Leka)

And it feels so good...

It is indeed very nice to see Don Imus go. It's interesting to compare the fury over Imus with that of the Dixie Chicks. Imus got fired and lost a lot of endorsements. The Dixie Chicks got blacklisted from American radio and the music industry as a whole. Imus' recovery, like the Dixie Chicks, depends on the strength of fringe market forces. Let's hope only the Dixie Chicks survive.

Isn't it strange that we live in a time where it makes sense to compare the careers of a group of artists who voiced a very mild criticism onstage of one of the most outrageous maniacal imperialist mass murderers in history and a vile reactionary racist talk radio shock-jock who spent hours upon hours spewing his toxic and non-sensical verbal sewage? Here's to better days!
