Song Description

This high energy headbanging song presents one person's frustration with things beyond her control, with choruses of pity and an equal frustration. Edgy guitar/trumpet lick anchors the song in a striving and failing motif, while the overall feel captures some of the hyped up energy of a political rally or rock concert.

Story Behind the Song

At a rally held by Michael Moore, a woman got hold of the mic and began ranting about all the ways in which he was politically incorrect, and devolved into a rant about everything wrong with the world, until the mic was finally taken away. I think her name was Annie Sunshine, and so that's what I called her in the song. To the best of my recollection, the verses are almost her words verbatim.

Lyrics

It's not the cockpit, it's the front of the plane,
It's not brainwashing, it's polluting your brain,
No gender,no slang,
As long as we keep talking like this, you know I just can't hang.

It's not enough to believe you are right,
You call yourself progressive but you're stupid and white,
No fellas, no gals,
As long as we keep talking like this, you know we can never be equals.

Annie Sunshine, you poor misguided soul,
Annie Sunshine, you're taking on the whole establishment of stupid white men.

The words I hear you say, are full of chauvinistic libel,
I think somebody needs to write a gender-neutral bible.

Annie Sunshine, you poor misguided soul,
Annie Sunshine, you're taking on the whole establishment of stupid white men.
