118. "It's Got To Be Done" by Lonesome Valley Singers

This one' from The Happy Listener's Guide to Mind Control, a compilation of bizarre propaganda, agitprop and subliminal-message-like stuff that's entertainingly alarming to listen to in an "it couldn't happen here... again... could it?" way.

The original thought here was that it might be even more disturbing to have kids singing this song, but then, in the name of summer activities, I started to think it would be cool to have the girls really play all the instruments, and by the time we were done with that, I'd changed my mind and decided we needed a more relevant nemesis than the "commies". The girls and I agreed, as would everyone, I think, that the true enemies are "the stupids", so we constructed the song as a counter-revolutionary volley in the War Against Intelligence.

Personnel: Braine!
Eden Hain ~ guitar and vocals
Miranda Broome ~ bass and vocals
Ridley Broome ~ keyboards and vocals
Rex Broome ~ other stuff (not much)
