Been busy writing two long (forthcoming) articles about how the Swedish “Liberal” party turned right. But through Jocke (thanks) I found an interesting discussion
about The West Wing (in Swedish). Apparently Jon Bon Jovi will appear in season seven, which sounds pretty lame compared to the music that has been used previously in the series (“Brothers in Arms” by Dire Straits, Jeff Buckley’s amazing versions of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, the concert with Yo-Yo Ma, and James Taylor playing live in the White House).
Since I have been both to John Kerry-rally in Milwaukee where Jon Bon Jovi played (although I missed most of it because of heavy traffic and bad weather), and a Democratic fundraising event in Washington DC where James Taylor played among others, I can say I prefer the latter. But why not ask the other guy from New Jersey
to play live in the last-ever episode of The West Wing?
