Tonight I permit myself a bit of Schadenfreude (or is it righteous satisfaction?) at the passing of the 'motorist' Rodney King and the 'businessman' Henry Hill. Calling King a 'motorist' as so many knee-jerk liberal journalists did from 1991 on is like calling the mafioso Hill a 'business man.' In 'honor' of these two sorry specimens of (in)humanity, I propose the following for your listening pleasure.
Rodney 'Can We All Just Get Along?' King
Bobby Fuller Four, I Fought the Law and the Law Won
Andrew Sisters, Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar
Beatles, I'm a Loser
Roger Miller, Dang Me
Johnny Bond, Hot Rod Lincoln
Roger Miller, King of the Road
Jackie DeShannon, What the World Needs Now
Sam Cooke, Fool's Paradise. What a great song! Unfortunately Cooke did not take his own advice, and died young in consequence.
Hank Williams, Lost Highway
Byrds, Life in Prison
Merle Haggard, The Fugitive
Derek and the Dominoes, Layla (Piano Exit)
