SONMETIMES I’m in the mood for a good rant. Especially when encountering nonstop lies from commentators on both the Left and the Right, each with their own axe to grind. There are few great rants in literature to find, mainly because they’re never wanted by an establishment, but a good rant expresses outrage and also a joy in language.
One of the best of them in the music world is this song by John Lennon, “Gimme Some Truth.”
The refrain is all I’ve ever wanted. I suspect many people feel the same.
