"This land was made for you and me"

How refreshing to not be forced to endure yet another inauguration that's soundtrack is supplied by Branson.

The 89 year old grandfather of American folk music, Pete Seeger, flanked by his grandson Tao and Bruce Springsteen were the highlight of yesterday's festivities at the Lincoln memorial, not for the talent on stage, but for the greatest American ballad.

"This Land is Your Land" is the song we should be singing during the 7th inning stretch.

UPDATE: HBO purchased the exclusive rights to the concert and have scrubbed Youtube in an over zealous effort to enforce their rights. The updated version here now is from an International broadcast.
