Listen of the Month #10
“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz,
My friends all drive Porches, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
Oh lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz”
This month’s Listen is this anti capitalist song by Janis Joplin, commenting on the selling out of her fellow musicians – and the rest of us. Sadly, her estate sold it to Mercedes-Benz as the track for an advert in about 2002… Oh the irony.
