Bob Roberts is a great movie. It should be required viewing in schools. Wall Street Rap!

Wall Street Rap!

Indeed! My fave song is "What Did the Teacher Tell You?" I used to listen to a lot of Tom Paxton, and I always liked his 1960s song "What Did You Learn in School Today?" When I heard Tim Robbins turn the Tom Paxton song into a conservative protest anthem, I burst out laughing.

I have at times wished there was a Bob Roberts soundtrack, but Tim Robbins was afraid to remove the songs from their context, so no soundtrack...
