So we’re told now that the “glitches” in the Obamacare rollout are really just “kinks.” Well that got me to thinking: just what would The Kinks say about this? Would they complain about the misappropriation of their good name? Or, perhaps, is their song oeuvre suitable for this situation?
So let’s head over to ultimateclassicrock.com, and check out the official list of the top ten list of The Kinks hits, and see which ones map up. Oh yeah, The Kinks can definitely supply the soundtrack for Obamacare’s kinks:
9. Tired of Waiting for You.
8. Till the End of the Day.
5. All Day and All Night.
Yes, these should all be the background music for the website, or the on-hold music for any telephone number.
Of course, there’s one Kinks top-ten tune Obama surely won’t ever deserve to put on his—or the Queen’s—iPod: “A Well Respected Man”:
Cause he’s oh, so good,
And he’s oh, so fine,
And he’s oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.
He’s a well respected man about town,
Doing the best things so conservatively.
