Surprised that Elvis Costello’s “45” hasn’t had a resurgence. Seems prescient:
“Bells are chiming for victory / There’s a page back in history / 45
They came back to the world that they fought for / Didn’t turn out just like they thought / 45 /
Here is a song to sing, to do the measuring / whadaya lose, Whadaya gain, Whadaya win? Elvis Costello – 45 Original Video
There’s the rub: what do you lose, gain, win. Dear God. Too many unanswerable questions.
We Americans have our 45. What we do next is up to us. Assuming our votes are counted accurately.
As the wise Tom Stoppard reminds, “It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting.”
