All-American Rejects Move The Left Along

The Left’s New Anthem:

 “And even when your hope is gone Move along, move along just to make it through” 

You are not going to find many music reviews here, however. I’m a sucker for a good rock anthem. Songs like The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again, U2’s “Bloody Sunday”, and the classic summer anthem, Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out,” have played as a consistent backdrop to my life. 

A good rock anthem has theme, purpose, great chunky riffs, and consistent, punchy, martial drumming that makes you want to get up and march. Great Rock Anthems are inspirational in both word and sound.

All-American Rejects “Move Along” is playing in the background as I type, and it has several charactaristics of a great anthem, however the lyrics are a let down … that is unless you are a conservative and have seen the actual video.

I am still not sure if AAR are lampooning the left, or comiserating with them, watch the vid and you be the judge. The wonderful part is the football segment, a sniveling looser in a blue football jersey wiped out by the team in the RED and white jersey, score: 58 – 7.

Come November I’ll be singing this election night in memory of the left. I also predict great things for AAR if they hang together and keep producing — and never mess with their rythm section. Bands with great batteries are damned hard to find, and when there is one it’s great.

The lead of the band, (sorry, don’t know his name,) has the intensity of Andy Prieboy in his heyday, without the un-needed antics. The production on their new album is wonderful, it could have been from Micky Most at RAK, and that’s high praise.

Full lyrics:

“Move Along”

Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking

When you fall everyone stands

Another day and you’ve had your fill of sinking

With the life held in your Hands are shaking cold

These hands are meant to hold

Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking

When you fall everyone stands

Another day and you’ve had your fill of sinking

With the life held in yourHands are shaking cold

These hands are meant to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong

Move along, move along like I know you do

And even when your hope is gone Move along, move along just to make it through

Move along Move along

So a day when you’ve lost yourself completely

Could be a night when your life ends

Such a heart that will lead you to deceiving

All the pain held in your Hands are shaking cold

Your hands are mine to hold Speak to me,

when all you got to keep is strong Move along, move along like I know you do

And even when your hope is gone Move along, move along just to make it through

Move along (Go on, go on, go on, go on)

When everything is wrong, we move along (Go on, go on, go on, go on)

When everything is wrong, we move along Along, along, along

When all you got to keep is strong Move along, move along like I know you do

And even when your hope is gone Move along, move along just to make it through

(Go on, go on, go on, go on) Right back what is wrong We move along
