Song of the Day: "Running the World," Jarvis Cocker

Jarvis Cocker has some dirty words for our world leaders.

Aside from being an absolutely lovely and sly political protest song, today's download is also a time-saver: Hear it here and save yourself the trouble of scanning through 30 minutes of silence at the end of Jarvis Cocker's album, which is what you'd normally have to do to find this song. Who's bright idea was it to put "hidden tracks" on albums anyway? Regardless, anyone who digs a good tune and has some animus for today's world leaders should like this song. A warning for the easily offended: Cocker repeatedly uses a common four-letter British slang term for a lady's naughty bits.
