Check it OUT. Don’t you just hate it when you go out karaoking with your friends and you can’t decide between Melissa Etheridge’s I’m The Only One and Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn? Or you just don’t know WHAT to sing and you sit awkwardly in the corner and out of desperation pick a song that secretly ends up being six minutes long (King Of Wishful Thinking)? WORRY NO MORE. Coming in hot at 3 minutes and 27 seconds, we have Krista Branch’s I Am America:
Branch, the wife of a children’s pastor, incorporates her Baptist faith into the song and warns that those who deride the tea party will have consequences to face when “judgment day” — not “election day” — rolls around:
I’ve got some news, we’re taking names
We’re waiting now for the judgment day
Branch’s song, her fourth single, has won her the attention of Glenn Beck. The Fox News host played “I Am America” during his radio show on Wednesday morning.
Who can blame him? It’s catchy in a threatening-y Judgement Day-y sort of way! Hopefully Sing Sing (my karaoke spot) has updated its book. It’s almost the weekend!
Sidenote: I miss Michelle Branch
