Obscure Music Friday: The Dawn of Correction


In honor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moving us to just 2 minutes to midnight, the point of total global annihilation, I considered featuring Barry McGuire's "Eve of Destruction". But it's not really obscure enough to merit inclusion in this highly prestigious series. So instead how about "The Dawn of Correction" by the sadly-forgotten Philadelphia group, The Spokesmen

Some sample lyrics:
You missed all the good in your evaluation
What about the things that deserve commendation?
Where there once was no cure, there's vaccination
Where there once was a desert, there's vegetation
Self-government's replacing colonization
What about the Peace Corp. organization?
Don't forget the work of the United Nations


So over and over again, you keep sayin' it's the end
But I say you're wrong, we're just on the dawn of correction
But I say you're wrong, we're just on the dawn of correction
So keep your sunny-side up. And don't forget the work of the United Nations!
