A Pink Social Conscince?

Pop star (and Philly homegirl) Pink has something to say about George Bush and it seems to be resonating with the young voter set. I've never followed Pink's career, but I have seen her on billboards throughout Philadelphia urging young people to "KNOW YOUR HIV STATUS!" which suggests she really does have something substantative to say about social issues. Anyway, the link below is a withering denunciation of President Bush AND his policies. Pink reminds us of the consequences of George Bush's actions in this acoustic rendetion of her song "Mister President." Have a listen and tell me what you think.

That is a great song and video. I hadn't heard it before, although I had heard Pink had a song like this on her most recent CD. It's a powerful song (great lyrics) and even more powerful because it was done acoustically.

I'm no Pink fan, but I was impressed.

Have you heard Neil Young's powerful Living in War? The Powderfinger has returned!

That was great. I have never heard of "Pink" before, but she has a beautiful voice and she is gorgeous.

As for the song, too bad George’s boys will never let him hear it. It was so right on.
