Josh Ritter Pulls Out An Old W Song For The Trump Lunacy

Josh Ritter has resurrected his song ‘The Temptation of Adam’ as the lunacy of Donald Trump continues.

Ritter’s song is featured on 30 Days 30 Songs, the website by Death Cab For Cutie manager Jordan Kurland and author Dave Egger.

Josh said, “I wrote “Temptation of Adam” during the W administration, in the midst of what seemed to me then to be the darkest days in American political history. Listening to this live version as I write, however, I’m struck by just how innocent it seems. Love is a powerful, powerful force in our human world. I hope and hope that it is strong enough to withstand all that we hurl against it”.

Ritter’s song is the sixth song from the ’30 Days 30 Songs’ site, created for a Trump-free America. The site also hosts anti-Trump songs from Death Cab For Cutie, Aimee Mann and Franz Ferdinand.
