The fathomless swamp of musical lies just got a little deeper. I added 5 more songs — each with a cool and appropriately deceitful music video — to my 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.
This week’s additions to the Post*factua!ly post-truth playlist include: You’re Telling Me Lies by Question Mark and the Mysterians; Don’t You Lie to Me (I Get Evil) by Gary Moore; Rebellion (Lies) by Arcade Fire; You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette; and, If Your Girl Only Knew by Aaliyah.
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.
