Two songs one should never insult if one wants to avoid snarky comment

Imagine

and

Jesus take the Wheel.

Ha you are so right. I often tease my 14 year old for her love of Imagine and my ex g/f for downloading Jesus Take the Wheel using my itunes account.

Neither of them appreciate my insults

And "Proud to be an American," which many people seem to think is our national anthem, deserving of standing while it's playing, hat removal, etc. Ugh.

CC-- why wasn't my comment about this song in that previous posting? Was it somewhere else? I guess I'll have to say it again:

Us boomers like "Imagine" because of the rather delicious joke that it's a popular song that is also essentially the Communist Manifesto!
I don't like it much as a song either. And I like possessions.

I don't know where another comment would have gone, Kim. Sorry about that.

I will say that if your entire generation shared your sense of irony, I probably wouldn't mind the song so much.

qho klikes possessions, too. And religion, and feeling that some things are worth dying for.
