Free MP3: Billy Bragg, "Never Buy The Sun"

While you're waiting for Friday & Saturday cheapness, I'll share a link for my song of the week.

I've loved Billy Bragg from the first Cockney yelp that landed on my ear. And gotta love public radio for turning me on to his new anti-tabloid song in the wake of the News of the World scandal.

Short version: Many people from Liverpool (aka "scousers" in the song) protest the related Sun paper for their disgusting -- and false -- reporting about a soccer tragedy in 1989.

A little celebrity news here and there won't kill you, but listening to song reminded me that we're supporting whatever they do by reading/watching.

I'm just sayin'...
