The immense swamp of musical lies continue to expand. I just added a bunch of new songs — each with a cool and appropriately deceitful music video — to our definitive audio-visual playlist all about lies, lying and liars. There are certainly lots of liars, falsehoods and self-deception in this group of songs. My favorite includes the classic Queen song, Liar, written by Freddie Mercury at the height of his powers.
This week’s other additions to the Post*factua!ly post-truth playlist include: Confessions Part II by Usher; Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake; Facts Don’t Lie by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony; I Love You So I Told You a Lie by Ted Nugent; and, Why I Lie by Liz Phair.
This continues my plan to catalog, for the first time in once place, every song or piece of music dedicated to lies, lying and liars.
As you might have guessed with such a rich and deep swamp of human deceit to sift through it will take me a while. So, please bear with me and enjoy the musical misinformation in the meantime. No songs about “fake news” or “alternative facts” yet. I’m sure it will only be a matter of time — please let me know if you hear one.
