Perhaps my mood is influenced by several recent work-related meetings involving circular "visioning," but when my music player played John Mayer's "Waiting on the World to Change" on the bus home, I became really irritated.
(Yes, I have it on my music player. I also have bagpipes, Ella Fitzgerald, the Magnetic Fields, the New Pornographers, and Eiffel 65. I ain't a hater...)
At first the song seems like it's post-cynical and slightly jaded but still hopeful. But seriously, it's just lazy and passive and capitalizes on legitimate political frustrations, all to a happy tune. Why would you be content to just wait for change? Why not fight for it yourself?
I switched straight to Thalía after that nonsense...
