Defenders of Marriage

That's the title of a song by songwriter, satirist, and funny/poignant guy Roy Zimmerman. He plays it on YouTube here with some commentary. Friend and local songwriter Steve Deasy brought Mr. Zimmerman to town a few weeks ago, and was encouraged to do his own version, so Steve's version is here. I've not embedded the videos here because I want interested readers to go to one of the sites and see it there. Roy Zimmerman has many more topical and humorous songs on video there. Steve's channel is small so far but growing; in fact, I predict it'll grow more soon, because I saw him shooting video tonight at the open mic.

I don't want to inflame any feelings about recent setbacks on the road to marriage equality. It's just a good song that speaks truth.

It is a good one. My current fave of his right now, though, is "I Approve This Message". I sang it to myself a lot while workin' on the election all the live-long day. :)

I'll go back and listen/watch that one when I get home tonight. Thanks for the tip. Also, thanks for working on the election!

Well, wasn't THAT a nice piece of FAIL. Thanks — it's fixed now.

Aw, it wasn't as FAIL as all that. *patpat* And the cover version is nice - no audience noise over the top there. I like the riff muchly.
