    Hey General

    keep up the great work on the pod James Corbett was a top tier guest as he is doing great work promoting individual critical thinking such as you guys are in ploughing that hard road as well.

    Of the choices you have put forward No 3 but why use old music is there anyone you can collab with to get a unique music track for the show, Regards Russell

      Hey Russell,
      Thanks for your choice.
      I chose older music because I’m a fan of it. That being said, I’m totally open to someone doing up a kick ass intro song for us to use!

    The Who-Won’t Be Fooled Again or Jackson Brown-Lives in The Balance come to mind. Lives in the Balance is particularly good. Lyrics-“You might ask what it takes to remember , when you know that you’ve seen it before . When a government lies to it’s people , and country is drifting to war.” The song also has a haunting intro.

        Another less known song but good lyrics is Deep Purple-No No No. Lyrics below-

        “No No No”

        Really hate the running really hate the game
        Looking at them all I wanna be unborn again
        Their suit is getting tighter although they’re getting thin
        The flies are crawling on their face and trying to get in
        People say that we’re to blame I say
        No no no it’s just the game
        Must we let them fool us no no no
        Have we got our freedom no no no
        Is it getting better no no no
        Do we love each other no no no
        Must we wait forever no no no

        Heads are getting stronger bodies getting weak
        Looking at them all it feels good to be a freak
        Their hands are getting closer they’re reaching out so far
        The greenies gonna get them make them serve stars
        Tell them how it is and they say
        No no no we know it all
        The washing’s getting dirty the air is getting thin
        It’s all in such a mess that no one knows where to begin
        They talk about creating but all they do is kill
        They say we’re gonna mend it but they never will
        Poison in the rain but they say
        No no no we ain’t to blame

    All good choices General.
    I think for your podcast theme however, #2 Empire – Birds Of Tokyo – is my pick.
    It’s not only very fitting for our times, but also the complexity of the lyrics represents the level of depth & intelligence you offer in your articles and podcast.
    The tune is also easy on the auriculas as opposed to being fast & heavy (which I love – but we’re talking context here), which I think could be appropriate as an intro — the can opener to your ‘hard hitting’ info! 😊

      Agreed. That’s exactly why it’s one of my choices. Plus they’re Aussie!

      I’m with Amanda on choosing song number 2.

      Keep up the good work!
