30 Day Song Challenge - day 28

day 28 - a song that makes you feel guilty

I'm confused. Isn't this just a retread of the question for day 13?

Why would you feel guilty about a song? Maybe Mark Chapman has a pang of conscience listening to Double Fantasy but the rest of us? It is self-evident that whoever compiled these questions just ran out of steam towards the end. It's the Sparkle In The Rain of pop music memes.

A google search of "day 28 - a song that makes you feel guilty" doesn't really help. Clicking on a few links at random indicates that most people are just as bewildered as me by the question.

OK, I've already done the guilty pleasure pick so Hefner's 'The Day That Thatcher Dies' is just pure guilt on my part. Of course I'll play it at high volume come that particular day but as Hefner's Darren Hayman sings:


'We will laugh the day that Thatcher dies,

Even though we know it's not right,'

Speed the day and the guilt.

Just found this... I didn't know about this song or this video. I love it!

By the way, I posted the lyrics to "Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead" to an old blog of mine when Reagan died, and I don't feel guilty about that, not one bit!
