Okay, I wrote this song over 5 years ago, so forgive me. Of course now my daughter loves American Idol, so I've changed my mind somewhat. But to be clear, the intention of this song is as social criticism of America's obsession with competitiveness in general and banal television shows overall, not just this show. I especially have trouble with people reducing artistic endeavors to the level of crass game shows. But in the long run who am I to judge. It's a catchy little ditty regardless. I believe that's the multi-talented John Laprade on drums, bass and background vocals. Enjoy!!!
