Instagram Anthem by DCS Textphilly (102B Records, 2012)

Most regimes that infringe on privacy need an anthem, so this makes sense.

 

Lucky Man by Emerson, Lake and Palmer (from Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Shout! Factory/Sony BMG, 2007)

I was never a big ELP fan, but I once invoked them as a ruse for personal gain. There was a mid-70’s weekend call-in show on WBZ-FM in Boston, called “Rock Forum” or something like that. They were giving away free copies of The Rolling Stones’ brand new LP, Black and Blue, and I needed one badly. So I called in. While I was on hold, I couldn’t think of a good question to ask, so when they very abruptly put me on live radio, I blurted out “Uhhhh…when are Emerson, Lake and Palmer coming to town?” The incredulous answer was “They were here last week. Where were you? Aren’t you a fan?” I was immediately disconnected, and the panel had many laughs at the expense of my tender 13 year old psyche.

 

Learning to Swim by Tasha Platt (from Big Bad Bantam Rooster, Tasha Platt, 2009)

Theme from Lagaan: Once Upon A Time in India (Sony, 2001)

We love us some Bollywood, especially S.D. Burman, who was not the composer of this soundtrack.
