The Weekly Standard on the Abundance of Ron Paul Songs

This is what the article - pretty decent by all accounts - has to say about our friend Steve Dore:

If there is a Woody Guthrie of the Ronulan movement, he has to be Steve Dore, a San Jose-based blues musician and boogie-woogie piano enthusiast. He's been playing music since he was 6 years old, and came of age in the sixties. As a songwriter, he "had nothing to say." The melodies would pop into his head, but the words wouldn't come. Then he started reading up on economics and inflation (he cut a record called "Inflation Nation," which he calls "training wheels" for his current Ron Paul efforts), and went to see Paul at a hard assets conference in San Francisco, where he found himself standing on his chair numerous times, applauding Paul's fiscal sense. Ever since, the music won't stop flowing.

He's written so many Paul songs--everything from "Critical to Get Political" to "Fed Reserve Song"--that he's now releasing a full CD, called "Early Songs of the Great Ron Paul Revolution." The Paul family has preordered 50 copies. Dore would've given them freebies, "but they believe people should be paid for their labor." (In keeping with Paulian philosophy on currency, Dore will accept silver as payment, currently going for $14 an ounce. He'll take gold, but at $800 an ounce, you should plan on a bulk order.)

Dore explains that a long shot like Paul appeals to writers and artists, who are dreamers by nature. Quoting Oscar Wilde, he says, "A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world."

Take it easy song

Take it Easy, Ben

Sung to the tune of The Eagles' "Take it Easy"

Well Ben's been runnin' up the Hill
Tryin' to bend to their will
Got a dozen rate cuts
On his mind
First round was for Citi
Two for Morgan Stanley
One sez Bear Stern's paid in kind
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of Ron Paul's voice
Drive you crazy
Listen up while they grandstand
Don't even try to understand
Just stay on your reflation plan
And take it easy
Well the Fed is in a corner
The dollar is a goner
Such a fine fight to see
It's a crisis, my Lord
One we can't afford
Chuck Schumer wants a guarantee
C'mon Bernanke, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your Discount Window's
Gonna save me
Heads you lose, and tails we win
We just want to party again
So loosen up and cave right in
And take it easy
Well Hank's is on the phone to Beijing
Tryin' to stop Yuan from stinging
Got a world of trouble
On his mind
Sarko's economic war
Inflation lapping at our shores
And Cuomo wants WaMu fined
Take it easy, take it easy
Don't let Trichet's hawkish words
Make you crazy
Come on Bernanke, you can see
Gotta know if that Discount Window's
Gonna save me...
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy.

What about

What about "Land of Confusion" by Genesis? I prefer the Disturbed cover, but either one would be very in the spirit of this campaign.
