The Best Songs About Choice (Mainers Edition)
It's like Klaatu says at the end of "The Day The Earth Stood Still": "The decision...rests with you". Here are a few classics to keep in mind while you're waiting your turn to vote.
"It's My Life" by The Animals - Alotta good lines here: "It's hard world to get a break in/All the good things have been taken" certainly has multiple layers of meaning, but for sheer determination, we'll go with "It's my mind and I'll think what I want".
"Freedom Of Choice" by Devo - "Don't be tricked by what you see/You've got two ways to go/I'll say it again in the land of the free/Use your freedom of choice". Okay, this one's so obvious it almost shouldn't count. Extra points for catchiness though!
"Any Road" by George Harrison - "But ooeeee it's a game/Sometimes you're cool/Sometimes you're lame". Nice lines that speak the truth, only George ain't done yet: "And if you don't know where you're going/Any road will take you there." If that doesn't sum it up, I don't know what does. While you're here, check out George's last ever appearance on TV, VH-1, 1997...
"Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?" by The Lovin' Spoonful - Yeah, sure, look we know it's about a "choosing a girlfriend". Or hey, maybe it's about something more: "Did you ever have to finally decide/And say yes to one and let the other one ride?/It's not often easy and not often kind" kinda hits home by 2020 standards. We like reading between the lines as often as possible.
"Any Colour You Like" by Pink Floyd - Sometimes no words are needed at all.
