Pop Matters: Steve Earle, "Jerusalem"

Most modern popular music is an intellectual and moral wasteland*, but there are "pop" musicians who still  work hard to make a difference, bards who sing about a better way and a better day, troubadors who raise important and thought-provoking issues - philosophers of the people.

Like Steve Earle...

* Don't misunderstand - there's nothing wrong with a good dance tune, from time to time, but that's not all that pop music has to offer.
