PG&E: Yes We’re America’s Worst Large Utility Company, But What Can _You_ Do About It?
*A reference to “the first existential country song.” (Ignore the first ten seconds – it’s a little what you call saccharine.)
Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” ranked “Wichita Lineman” at #192.
“the greatest pop song ever composed”
“one of those rare songs that seems somehow to exist in a world of its own – not just timeless but ultimately outside of modern music”
I know I need a small vacation
but it don’t look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
won’t ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you
and I want you for all time
And the PG&E Lineman is still on the line
**Yes, larger than the U.S. Capitol’s. On purpose.
