This allegorical tale tackles the topic of leadership by the totally inept.
Set in the American Civil War, this song points a middle finger to bureaucratic blunderers anywhere and everywhere.

Out To Lunch
I like these cats, I mean birds, because they really go after current events and social commentary with the air of real raconteurs.

You've really got great attitude in your voice. It carries a great atmosphere into the whole song! -M-


MEDICINAL MUSIC
3a) our choice - Heck, General . . . this allegorical tale tackles the topic of leadership by the totally inept . . . set in the American Civil War, this song points a middle finger to bureaucratic blunderers anywhere and everywhere . . . it's an indictment, man . . . I put my spleen into these lyrics . . . just picture the usual suspects in the line-up, all the bosses you never respected, lining their pockets whilst man-hoovering you into carrying the can . . . we gotta put a stop to it . . . this is a protest song! Well, Heck,General! Don't let me be one to stand in your way! Go Right Ahead! And Be My Guest! Thank You! "The Eagle Has Landed!" -M-


WARRIORS FOR CHANGE
ABOUT, GOOD OLD BOYS!


Elder Statesmen of the Ruling 11
If the power to govern derives from the consent of the governed, how oh how have we ended up with this pathetic spate of sycophants, dilettantes and cruel merchants? Heck General is a wry reflection from the second rifle line at Shiloh but is sadly topical to this day and encompasses the wisdom that all commanders should personally lead their armies .... from the front lines.

HUGH'S NEWS
There should be an entire station with this song and appropriate news. "The U.S. Army is reviewing the way it notifies families that a relative has been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. The changes follow complaints from families who say they haven't always been told the whole story and in some cases, were given a false version of events."
