Why don't we have songs like this anymore? Alice's Restaurant

| music |

This is the perfect song for thanksgiving. One of my favorites from the vietnam era.

I love this song because it is a cute song, has a catchy tune, but most of all - has a meaning. It makes light of a serious situation - the draft - with music. It seems like most of the music from the sixties and seventies was all about that.

What happened? The closest thing we have to a protest song today is Flo Rida’s the Club Cant Even Handle Me (Joke, by the way)

I wish we had some songs with a meaning.
