"Continuous Hit Music" as written by and Andrew Kenny....
No... We didn't know to use it
So... we lost the right to choose it
When... they took it and abused it
Oh... continuous hit music
And now... continuous hit music

    General CommentIs it just me, or does this song sound vaguely political?

    "No... we didn't know to use it"- ie our rights, the system in general
    "So... we lost the right to choose it"- no one did anything, so now the corporations and other politicians are pretty much deciding who gets into office
    "When... they took it and abused it" -I don't even think this one needs explaining. Turn on the news, you'll see it.
    "Oh... continuous hit music"- our obsession with entertainment, so what if our country is going to hell in a nice little handbasket, at least we get our 50 minutes of music, right?

    This kind of reminds me of the fall of Rome... bread and circus, you know?

    General Commenti can see where la_femme is coming from, but i think it's more direct than that. sounds to me that he's talking about the current state of radio. radio has become so commercialized and abused that it only wants 'continuous hit music.' independent radio stations are virtually non-existent any more. we lost the right to good music when we failed to support the stations that brought it to us. hence 'we lost the right' and 'they took it and abused it.'

    General Commentyeah, in certain light anything can be taken political.. but that's not the intent.
    (here's a hint, if the songwriter is from texas, the likeliness it'll be political goes way down.. we just don't bother with that kind of thing too much)

    iancurtis has it i think.. but yeah, the music to this awesome and beautiful
