Manfred Mann's Cover of a Springsteen Tune Made This List
Had Donald Trump the songwriting talent of Bob Dylan, he could have at least entertained us while downplaying the danger of the coronavirus. “A Hard Rain's Not Gonna Fall,” Trump could have offered, accompanied by acoustic guitar and harmonica.
“Don't Think Twice, It's All Right,” he could have performed as a follow up. His encore could have been a more contemporary Dylan cut, perhaps “It's All Good” from the Together Through Life album.
1. I Don't Want To Spoil The Party by The Beatles
Trump would rather play this B-side rather than deal with the pandemic “Eight Days a Week.”
2. You Don't Want To Know by Loudon Wainwright
Rufus's father here avoids revealing the temperature for our own good, a harder yet much safer truth than a virus.
3. Cover Up by Imagine Dragons
Self-titled, this EP was the first release fans ever got from the alt rockers, whose track pretty much sums up the President's strategy on coronavirus.
4. Nothing To Worry About by Peter, Bjorn and John
Living Thing is the album on which you can find this single, which is exactly what our Commander-in-Chief has been telling us amid 130,000 COVID deaths.
5. Act Like Nothing's Wrong by Will Kimbro.
On the same Americanitis album the folk singer includes other political satires like “The Power of Pride” and “I Lie.”
6. Don't Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin
Bob Marley did a reggae version of this classic, but he likely had something more effective than Trump to help him forget his troubles.
7. It Won't Kill Ya by the Chainsmokers
Any band with that name has to worry about health, knowing that both cigarettes and the virus can do you in.
8. No One Needs To Know by Shania Twain
Trump felt that way to an extent, even though he could not help telling it to a world-renown reporter.
9. Blinded by the Light by Manfred Mann
Knowledge, representing light in this Bruce Springsteen composition, will blind us, according to the President's logic, so he decided to keep us in the dark.
10. It's All Right Now by Free
Paul Rodgers's voice could convince us of this title, but Trump seems less comforting when you consider the Bad Company so often associated with him.
