Bloc + Rock

A great piece from Dan Brown at the CBC comparing the party theme songs from the federal election, with links to audio.

For my money, the Bloc had the best of the four.

It’s remarkable how the Conservative song sounds so much like a Simpsons parody. Or a new-age bilingual fascist rallying cry. If you’re trying to convince the country that you’re not evil, having a theme song where the singers sound like they’re wearing titanium spandex and gas masks is not advisable.

And the NDP, trying to package itself as new, hip and relevant, should have known better than to have repackaged Rise Up, a song that was first released in 1983.

The Liberal song, will, it’s just crazy.
