Nothing but getting rid of him. That is enough for me. If you want something from the Canucks, then fire away but I don't want anything from them except for them to house Obama.

As for Dave's decline, well guess that is your opinion. While I'm not a huge fan of his recent work, I still enjoy the band overall.

    Not too bad. The second half is better than the first, I think. He just really fights to squeeze those long, wordy lines in, and it doesn't always feel like a natural flow.

    But I can see this being his contribution to the Obama campaign--it's definitely ready-made for that.
    Yea..it sounded more like a rant than a song....I expect that the full band version will have a totally different and a much much better sound.

    Re: Mercy

    a nice somber little tune, it'll definitely be interesting to hear how it sounds with the full band. Definitely want to see what timmy/boyd/the horn section do with this one in terms of solos and stuff in the bridge and definitely feels like it could have something on the outro helping it drift off into the sunset. interesting....

    Why is it doubtful?

    POTUS is star power dude. Ex-POTUS too. Those dudes only go up in value as time goes on. Get your head in the game.

    Re: Mercy

    Before I rip ants, just wanted to say I love this song. Reminds me very much of "Oh" and sounds very some devilish. I hear some soaring violin on this. Wondering if the higher-voiced chords represent tim's part, or boyd, or other. And to the person who said they hear the "Crash" snare drumming on this, totally agree. Also hear more complex drumming as well. Also looking forward to seeing if they do sax / violin / trumpet intertwining parts a la "Spoon."

    Also agree that this was selected in spirit of Obama being there. Probably not the 1st single, but amen to good lyrics and structure.

    ...now to Ants: here comes the negativity. I may need to abstain from this site before it ruins the song for me. Just MO, anyone care to comment?

    this guy is a trolling idiot.. He does this regularly. Obviously has no life/friends...he's the fat guy that sits at his computer all days with a face full of popcorn chuckling to himself. He probably crawled to the bathroom immediately after posting this and cried into the toilet for a couple hours...

    Cool story BRO!!!

    No one needs to own Obama.. he did a good enough job of "owning" himself with his pathetic run as president.

    I likes the song. Listened to it 4 times last night and once this morning and found myself liking it more and more. Wondering if this is going to be on a bonus dist similar to BWGK.

    BTW, thought Captain Kirk was great as well. Backup vocals were solid. I have great memories of him at Alpine guesting on Jimi Thing and Dave going nuts after his solo.

    There are a lot of lyrics... and they aren't poetic at all. Dave just tried to squeeze a bunch of ill-fitting words into a really small amount of space.

    Honestly this song sounds horrible to me. I really hope it grows on me because I really want to like this album but this song is just not good at all.

    You never know, Mercy could fit perfectly on the album and really be that subtle, powerful tune that the album needs.

    Just not enough to go on at this point.

    For the occasion I liked it, and it is growning on me. I really like the chorus.

    Imagine if when Crash came out we hadn't heard any of the songs at all and Dave did a solo performance of Let You Down and that was all we had to go on. That is about the equivalent to this.
