Only Bob Marley and The Clash actually sing about police brutality this week, but Elvis sings about a small time hood and an alibi and Joey Ramone is less than happy with the job law enforcement is doing find the killers of his baby. Cecilia Bartoli is singing about the sun on the Ganges River, They Might Be Giants wax poetic about the SATs, and everybody else is singing about love.
Have a nice weekend, and don't go messing with Five-Oh.
