SO in just over 24 hours, the residents of Hougang are going to cast their vote in the by-election. It was just a little over a year that the whole country was involved in the general elections.
Still, I couldn’t help but dedicate these songs to the people living in the Hougang constituency. Sure, there are people who would say that you shouldn’t mix music and politics, or sport and politics, or whatever. But I think that’s kind of … ah well.
Anyway here they are. First off, Tokyo Police Club’s Your English Is Good. If nothing else, for the opening line.
Next is Radiohead’s Electioneering. Yup. Basically, because Ed O’Brien’s got his Rickenbacker, and this was back when Jonny Greenwood still had his guitar. (haha)
And lastly, here’s a nice version of U2′s One Tree Hill. It’s got nothing to do with politics or whatever. I just put it in because I think this is one of the best songs from The Joshua Tree.
