Fighting for King George

by Dick Siegel

An unabashedly political, pointed, upbeat and roots- rocking indictment of King George the Worst, his court of cronies and their Iraqi misadventure along with two further pared down reflections on being an American in search of sanity and humanity.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For anyone who needs a musical kick in the pants to help combat the dreadful inertia being induced by King George the Worst and his court of Crusty Cronies ...this three-song EP is for you.

Songwriting ace, Dick Siegel, puts George W. and his fellow misadventurers through the mill on the rip-roaring, rocking title track "Fighting for King George". It'll make you feel like doing a victory dance.

From "Fighting for King George":

"now King George is in his armor
doing a cowboy dance
singing 'take the statue of liberty
and ship it back to France'
and we read our newspapers
chew the daily lies
go to sleep with nightmares
wake up and close our eyes
fighting for King George
fighting for King George "


From "My Sweet America":

"wasn't she so good
wasn't she so beautiful
her millions sing to hear their freedom ring
now I hear her name
used to whip and blame the world
America they've come to drag you down"

From "Gentle Fire":

"gentle fire, tenderness
beauty is the song of love
always to remind us of
all that love has won"

He does for the new millennium what Dylan did for the sixties.
Proves that even though we left tyranny and England and now live freely in America, we still labor under a King , albeit a different one. Incredeable insight into the political nightmare we all must survive daily. Thanks for turning on the light.

Wonderful. Hope many have the chance to listen
Dick always hits it on the head with me.

hmm..maybe time for a Saturday night live gig?
You can rip up a picture of the king.

Keep it in the car and give yourself a jolt every morning!
In times that feel hopeless to me, this CD puts into words and music the way I feel about current events and America in general. In that way, it helps me to feel connected, and not quite so helpless. Love the last tune, quieting down to a song about what love can do. I'll have this CD worn out in no time!

A zeitgiest snapshot wrapped in great music and sharp lyrics.
As he has done for years, Dick Siegel weaves his keen wit and humor together with a social conscience, great lyrics, and snappy musicianship. The songs on Fighting for King George range from a scathing historically accurate depiction of our current quagmire to the emotions it evokes in our hearts and in our sense of patriotism.
