    It’s secret for now…
    But you’ll hear more in the days leading up! Definitely a video and it’s DEFINITELY going to be awesome!

    Then excitement is definitely warranted. Here’s my suggestion for the song for the video for what it’s worth. But whoever is putting in all the work should definitely do what inspires them.

    Listen to:

    How Do You Sleep? by John Lennon (1971)

    I can imagine Winn Butler of Arcade Fire singing the new lyrics below, but maybe a little faster tempo. 😎

    *

    On March 29 Prime Minister Harper played keyboard while singing John
    Lennon’s “Imagine” at a Winnipeg photo op.

    Another song on Lennon’s 1971 album Imagine is “How Do You Sleep?”, directed at Paul McCartney. If you’re familiar with the melody, try these new lyrics, which I emailed to Scott Rodger (Arcade Fire’s manager) last week. All together now!

    Mr. Harper, How Do You Sleep?

    So the contempt vote took you by surprise
    You better see through the people’s eyes
    Those guys were right on the price of the jets
    Cost twice as much but what about our vets
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    You made coalition a dirty word
    Most Parliaments have them, haven’t you heard?
    Policies favoured by most in their land
    More moderate than left and right demand
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    Prorogue the Parliament, twice down the drain
    Can’t hear Afghan detainees scream in pain
    Large tax cuts for the largest companies
    And for the Tar Sands boys more subsidies
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    At the climate talks, what do we have here
    Four times awarded Fossil of the Year
    Those Action Plan ads cost twenty-six mill
    The G8 and 20, over one bill
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    Why did you lose the seat at the U.N.?
    Who inserted the word ‘not’ with a pen?
    Five times Bruce Carson convicted of fraud
    Then secret clearance in a PMO job
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    Only five questions, ’cause you are the king
    Jump when reporters ask you anything
    You keep them more than forty feet away
    Behind steel fences, just another day
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    You challenge Michael to a face-to-face
    He tell you any time, any place
    Next day you say that it can’t be done
    You’ll just abide by the consortium
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?

    Get back on the ‘rights’ track says Amnesty
    And how do you define democracy?
    Your London rally, two students kicked out
    ‘Cause of a picture on a Facebook account
    How do you sleep?
    Ah, how do you sleep at night?
