Wanted: Lead Vocalist

September 27, 2012

I’ve got Stephen Hawking on keyboards;

he’ll take it beyond Eno

 

I’ve got Richard Dawkins on lead guitar;

so angry, and so righteous…

but I’ll balance him with Desmond Tutu,

showing us the love on the slide

 

I’ve got Angela Merkel on drums;

keeping it tight

(with Julian Assange on percussion, behind a curtain)

 

I’ve got Meryl Streep on the bass;

she can play anything, and carry the entire ensemble

on her performance alone

 

I’m in negotiations to get Carmen Herrera for a guest rap.

Kofi Annan is confirmed as compere.

 

I’d like to introduce The Cinematic Horns:

Spike Lee on trumpet,

Werner Herzog on trombone,

Nani Moretti on soprano sax,

Martin Scorsese on tenor,

Michael Moore on baritone.

We’ll be playing on a Tuesday, so Woody can’t make it…

 

Then we have Paul Keating on the accordion,

Christine Lagarde on the Hammond Organ,

and Hun Sen on the fiddle

 

Ladies and gentlemen, the ethereal choir:

Nostradamus, Madame Blavatsky,

the 14th Dalai Lama, Edgar Cayce,

and Shirley McLaine

 

It’s my band, so I’m playing rhythm guitar

Who knows, I might learn something

    haven’t figured it all through, but Moretti with the sax sound great, Hun Sen it’s genius… and love the idea of you playing the guitar… immagining it like Mark Knopfler!!
