Waiting for the Great Leap Forward

Yesterday, a couple of friends and I were sitting outside under the stars, lamenting the sorry state of the world, but staying hopeful and wondering what role we could play in trying to make it all better. It was a really nice conversation, one of those that keeps you thinking for a long time afterwards. On my way back home, I had my iPod on shuffle in the car, and an old song I hadn't heard in forever came on.

How appropriate, I thought. It was Billy Bragg's "Waiting for the Great Leap Forward." I kept it on repeat all the way home, and enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you.




And here are the lyrics, if you're interested.

Enjoy!

Thanks for bringing this back.

A couple friends and I heard Billy Bragg at The Warfield Theater in San Francisco in the late 1990s.
