Conservapedia:Greatest Conservative Songs
Take re-edits since 20 April 2013 into account
This page might be in need of an update as there may have been changes to the CP list.
Because apparently Conservapedia is not a big fan of the 1000's of hymns and Christian rock songs out there.
"Conservative is a term that is well-understood. A "conservative song" reflects some of those values without diluting them with a liberal message.--Aschlafly 15:42, 26 July 2007 (EDT)"
"Many of the songs here have a powerful conservative message, and demonstrate that the music industry does not have to be liberal.--Aschlafly 15:00, 18 February 2008 (EST)"
"P.S. Liberals do say conservative things from time to time. We're listing songs here, not artists.--Aschlafly 15:01, 18 February 2008 (EST)"
(Because like Picasso fans, it's the art, not the artist, that matters.)
This list has been made for the purpose of
beration and mockery analysis and criticism of cp:Essay:Greatest Conservative Songs
For a way cooler list, here's: Fun:Greatest songs, liberal and conservative
Red links and blue links are incidental (at least the imported stuff)—somewhat incidental fun in the case of the latter.
It's likely that the lyrics of some of these songs have been widely taken out of context by Conservapedians. Consider some less-than-truthful Christian literature that refers to biblical verses without actually quoting such, or leaving out important follow-up verses, or even not quoting them in their entirety while making it look they did. One hypotheical example: "As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons." Song of Solomon 2:3. Sounds complete, huh.
This is also done by some less-than-truthful Christians/Conservapedians who attack other works by atheists, liberals, writers of books like the Qur'an or other songs. For example, one might imagine the XTC song Dear God being cited as promoting beer-drinking among children.
It seems that many Conservapedians, like many people in general, like a few or some pop songs regardless of the ideology of the songs. For example Rush Limbaugh's show begins with The Pretenders. In the talk page of the CP "essay, " Ed Poor suggested a list of "Songs of interest to conservatives" or Songs that Conservatives like, even if such songs aren't conservative. That doesn't seemed to have happened on CP, so what they might be doing is trying try to put in some essentially non-conservative (depending on your definition of conservative) songs they like into their essay and give some cockamamied excuses for doing so. This is probably true to an extent with the RationalWiki list or the many Wikipedia lists. The thing is, however, music seems to be more liberal than right-wing conservative, particularly rock—be it 1950's rock 'n' roll, classic rock, punk, and most heavy metal. Ed Poor's idea has merit, but this would likely be an admission that one could list conservative songs, i.e. songs that are politically correct in terms of Conservapedia or other noted conservatives, and list songs that are half-decent to good to great songs (a few which are in the RW list), but rarely would the two lists coincide. Hence, they try to stick in the square pegs.
Another possibility, of course, is parody by some CP editors. Try this: "In XTC's Dear God, Andy (Partridge) bares his soul and doubts to his Heavenly Farther, and in the video he brings down the tree symbolic of the Tree that lead to the Fall—complete with old serpentine has-been liberal atheists in the branches."
"There are many brilliant—and popular—conservative songs. Here is our growing list (click the box next to "Billboard Rank" to list the most popular first):" These songs tend to be in alphabetical order.
|Songs||Artist||Conservapedia Comments||RationalWiki Comments|
|All In||Lifehouse||Describes a relationship with God as being full of commitment and without reservations.||unencumbered with political and nationalist claptrap|
|At 30,000 Ft.||Queensrÿche||Pro-soldier, pro-Iraqi/Afghanistan action. "Flaming oil blackens the sky. I don't know why...their hate is the reason for the Hell that I make."||or maybe the Hell you make is the reason for their hate. After all Iraq didn't attack America; America attacked Iraq.|
|Bodies||The Sex Pistols||Profane but graphically anti-abortion.||Lots of conservatives like the Sex Pistols. I am the ANTICHRIST!!!"|
|Brick||Ben Folds Five||Shows the regret involved in abortion.||Aren't they guys? So what regret?|
|Bus Stop||The Hollies||Pro-chivalry, pro-romance and pro-marriage: "Someday my name and hers are going to be the same."||Yeah, he might take her name, like John Ono Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon|
|Bush Was Right||The Right Brothers||Celebrating the Bush Administration's success and policies.||such as 911, the Iraq War, and financial collapse|
|Capitalism||Oingo Boingo||There's nothing wrong with free enterprise.||Pity that the big corporations tend to stifle it.|
|Cat's In The Cradle||Harry Chapin||The importance of traditional families and responsible fatherhood.||as opposed to forever chasing after the almighty dollar. Besides, do most folk-songs—CP categorized it as folk—have electric guitars and string sections?|
|Critical Acclaim||Avenged Sevenfold||Pro-America and pro-Military.||and thus anti-(true)-Christian|
|Dissident||Pearl Jam||About a woman who engages in liberal values by being impregnated out of wedlock and having an abortion, but immediately regrets doing so.||Yeah, she should of practiced birth control or some other non-procreative sex.|
|D-I-V-O-R-C-E||Tammy Wynette||This sad song was a huge hit in 1968.||RW's take is a bit different.|
|Don't Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)||Fleetwood Mac||Used by Bill Clinton as his campaign theme song in 1992, but liberals often try to appeal to conservative themes for elections.||by focusing on the future rather than the past. "Ooooooo. Don't you look back."|
|Do You Hear the People Sing||Claude-Michel Schönberg||Standing up to government in the name of freedom, from the musical Les Miserables||Wasn't it a story about a man who engaged in petty theft, but who was otherwise decent, being pursued by some law-and-order 18th century cop?|
|"Extra Extra"||Toots Sweet||Toots does a great job at making the clips entertaining as well as informative.|
|Fair Exchange"||Kansas||Warnings about totalitarian governments who want to take away your freedom in the name of utopia. Also much of their early 1980s material, which has Christian lyrics.||Note: the CP comment about Kansas "Fair Exchange" is exactly like that of Kansas Sparks of the Tempest."|
|Sparks of the Tempest||Kansas||Warnings about totalitarian governments who want to take away your freedom in the name of utopia. Also much of their early 1980s material, which has Christian lyrics.||Perhaps the best of Kansas was in the 1970's—before they became Christian.|
|"Freedom is Colorblind"||JoeDanMedia||A song about how the left uses race to polarize the country. It is a conservative song that tries to unite the country.||leftists like George Wallace, Pat Buchanan, David Duke, the varying country clubs, etc|
|Game of Love||Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders||"The purpose of a man is to love a woman, and the purpose of a woman is to love a man... It started long ago in the Garden of Eden when Adam said to Eve 'Baby, you're for me.'"||I don't think that "Baby, you're for me" is in the KJV, though it could be in the Conservapedia Bible. The whole sex thing might have happened after the fall when God cursed Eve to implicitly be Adam's sexual plaything. (Genesis 3:16)|
|Get it Right the First Time||Louisiana's LeRoux||Wealthy Georgia politician is placed in high office and turns out to be a puppet with no ideas of his own. Released in 1980 when Jimmy Carter was up for re-election.||At least he's faithful to his wife, unlike another rich politician from Georgia. He might have lost because he was less like a puppet than the others.|
|Get Over It||The Eagles||world doesn't owe you a thing,"||Yeah, right-wing whiners, "Get Over It"|
|Gimme Back My Bullets||Lynyrd Skynyrd||The name says it all.||Are "bullets" code for pills, man?|
|God and Guns||Lynyrd Skynyrd||A powerful new song that elaborates on the song title.||By "new song" it's usually meant post-1970's, and most great bands of the 1970's lost a lot of it, musically, by the early 80's.|
|God Bless America||Irving Berlin||American patriotic, classic song.||Lots of references to nature.|
|God's Gonna Get 'Cha For That||Tammy Wynette & George Jones||You cannot escape God's gaze, no matter who you are||But so far, George Bush Sr.—killer of +100 000 Iraqis—has lived a good long life.|
|God Save the Queen||The SEX PISTOLS||Despite being frighteningly atheistic, the British have enough sense to keep this God-inclusive song as their national anthem. The anthem rightly attributes the success and good fortune of the nation and its monarch to God.||The Sex Pistol's version is arguably the best!|
|Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road||Elton John||The same message as the Prodigal Son: look objectively at our own lives, and realize that "I should have listened to my old man."||The "old man" might have been a reference to Long John Baldry, a noted British bluesman who died a few years ago, was relatively open about his homosexuality, who might have inspired Dwight Reginald to change his name to "Elton John," might have talked him out of committing suicide, and perhaps tried to get him to be more relaxed and comfortable about his homosexuality: yeah, maybe that "old man."|
|Gotta Serve Somebody||Bob Dylan||"It may be the devil or it may be the Lord."||On the talk page, Jazzman831 seemed uncertain about the inclusion on the page as the lyrics were somewhat vague. Tochay, Jazzman, toochay.|
|Grandad||Clive Dunn||UK Number 1 hit, in praise of senior citizens and their values||such as welfare statism, the New Left, the Old Left, and those who voted for FDR four times.|
|You Forgotten?||Darryl Worley||Patriotic response to September 11, 2001 attacks||Maybe G.O.P.'ers would rather forget—and many, it seems, have!!|
|I Am America||Krista Branch||American Tea Party Movement Song||(Is she related to Michelle?)|
|I Fought the Law (and the Law Won)||The Crickets||Its title says it all. The version by The Clash has a particularly good tempo.||In the Dead Kennedy's version, the singer seem to have won.|
|"I Need A Dollar"||Aloe Blacc||"Please Mr.Bossman I need this job more than you can know" - an excellent paean to the plights of unemployment||Try a Bengali textile mill. You'll get at least 30¢/hour.|
|I Saw The Light||Hank Williams||Redemption of sin through faith.||"CAN YOU SEE THE LIGHT!!" asked Pastor James Brown.|
|Hundred Mile Stare||Queensrÿche||Pro-soldier, freedom. "What ever happened to conviction and faith? People trip from side to side; don't know which way or what side to take. Always known the truth. It's really black and white. I've got no fear of judgment when it's time to fight."||"The Goddess of the Eternal Court of History will tear to tatters the briefs of the state prosecutor—for she acquits us." Adolf Hitler. (He was a member of the "Third Reich", though their world tour ended around 1945.)|
|Iraq No Phobia||Pro-Pain||It is a pro-American, pro-military heavy metal song about the first Gulf War: "Mohammed's no match for the great Uncle Sam."||Let's see: there are quadruple as many Muslims on this planet as there are Americans, Islam is about 11 centuries or 7x older than the US, the tallest building in the world is now in Arabia, the first country to recognize the young republic was Arab, bin Ladan was killed without trial partially because the US doesn't trust it's own judicial system—even though it would forgo any Nuremberg-style judgments of him, two guys with IEDs can shut down a major American city, and it seems that all it takes is for some guy in a turban to say "Boo!" and Americans go into apoplexy. It seems that Muhammad 'is' a match for the US.|
|I Won't Back down||Tom Petty||Talks about not backing down from a fight. Can be compared to not losing the Iraq War.||Right, CP editors: Tom Petty wrote it as a pro-Iraq War song. Naw it was a song about the Iraqi Resistance. You can take off to the gates of hell, but he'll stand his ground, and he won't back down.|
|Lightning Crashes||Live||The joy and significance of childbirth.||Isn't this about the singer's Buddhist beliefs? Karmic cycle? "Oh I feel it, coming back again." "Voices --- from the center of the Earth, I guess."|
|Livin' on a Prayer||Bon Jovi||Organized labor is harmful to the welfare of workers, who turn to prayer.||Yeah, that's exactly what the song's about. "Heavenly father, spare us the scourge of organized labour, so we can get higher wages and more time for our families."|
|No Children||The Mountain Goats||A song about a marriage falling apart because the couple has no children to hold the family together.||Which St. Paul and Pope John Paul II kind of support—no children; insofar that family life can get in the way of mission work.|
|"Nothing Like You"||Miles Davis and Bob Dorough||Celebrates the sight of ones beloved - Isaiah 43:4||"Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men for thee; and people for thy life."|
|Obama Nation and its sequel Obama Nation Part 3||Lowkey||A song sharply critical of Liberal president Barack Obama and his policies. Also criticises those that blindly follow him due to his race: 'It's the substance within, not the colour of your skin'||Which is why all the 43 presidents before him were white, several were slave-masters, and one sold slaves (and is on a $20 bill). Woodrow Wilson praised Birth of a Nation. C'mon liberals! Don't let your blind adoration of Obama blind you to the fact that McCain and Mitt would be far better for your interests.|
|"No Rules for Radicals"||JoeDanMedia||This song highlights "rules" Saul Alinsky wrote about in his progressive-liberal book, 'Rules for Radicals'.||Chances are, some of these very rules are being used by G.O.P. strategists.|
|Okie From Muskogee||Merle Haggard||Anti-drug and anti-hippie; a song about praising the traditional American values in Mid-America. Was written in response to the Vietnam War protests and counter-culture movement.||More like Alkie From Muskogee.|
|"ONE TEA PARTY"||Toot Sweet||This song is a metaphoric call to energize, motivate and unite the movement that we are all passionate about... the time is now to stand together, united, "AS ONE".||Yeah, let's destroy the G.O.P!|
|Patriotism||Company Flow||While containing bad language it endorses the US as a super-power.||As South Park Republicans Matt Stone and Trey Parker put it in that stupid movie of theirs (the one with scenes of puppet scat sex): "Fuck Yeah!!"|
|People Get Ready||Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions||An all-time classic song about the glory of the Lord.||Classic Christian Left song.|
|"Prayer for America"||JoeDanMedia||A short history lesson put to music regarding our schools and how the Bible was taught there in previous years.||Aside from school prayers, when was the Bible ever taught in public schools? Did they have religion classes in public schools back then? Say in the past 100 years?|
|Red Barchetta||Rush||Tells the story of a future with excessive regulation, where even driving is illegal.||Thirty-two years after the album that this song is on was released, there are more cars in the US and more cars in the world. Perhaps one day, all 7 billion of the world's people will have cars.|
|Respect||Aretha Franklin||This song is about respecting woman and their choices to be equal members in society.||First off, "woman" should be pluralized. CP considers it debatable whether it's conservative, it goes against St. Paul's instructions for wives to be submissive, and the song was written by Otis Redding—a man (one who is missed).|
|Stand By Your Man||Tammy Wynette||Don't expect feminists to like that one! Or Hillary Clinton!||Sometimes referred to as "the Doormat Song." As for Hillary—a former Goldwater supporter, she did stand by her man. Who here presumes that she didn't know that her husband was a skirt-chaser, but stood by him for political gain? Seems to have paid off too: share the same bed with the president for several years, get a senate seat for several years more, and be Secretary of State. Even the presidency is still possible for her. So yes Tammy, stand by your man: just make sure that he's not a drunk.|
|Sliver||Queensrÿche||Pro-soldier, bravery. "It's time to sack up and let go of your mothers. Take your gun, it's the cross that's carried by your brothers."||Take your gun. It's the cross. That's carried by your brothers. Say What?!? Does this metaphor make sense to anyone?|
|Simple Man||Charlie Daniels||A song about how drugs and poor politics are a result of people putting their Bibles down. Also a strongly pro death penalty song.||Good thing St. Paul wasn't executed. He persecuted Christians in his earlier days. "59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. 60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep." The Acts 7:59-60. One wonders if Charlie Daniels or any Conservapedian has prayed for members of the Taliban or Al Qaeda. Shouldn't bin Ladan been given a chance to repent, and receive Christ? What if the Boston bomber became a Christian?|
|Spirit In The Sky||Norman Greenbaum||A religious rock song written in 1969.||A pleasantly creepy one at that.|
|Star Spangled Banner||Francis Scott Key||The American national anthem.||Laurie Anderson has a humourous take on it.|
|Sweet Home Alabama||Lynyrd Skynyrd||A response to hippie culture. Defends Southerners from stereotyped attacks by liberal, Canadian rocker Neil Young. "Well, I hope Neil Young will remember/A Southern |man don't need him around anyhow."||A response to hippie culture, by guys who look like hippies; Defends Southerners from stereotyped attacks; the song defends George Wallace by lamely implying that he's no worse than Nixon. An otherwise great song wasted on two stupid verses; by liberal,; Neil Young has produced many songs. Few which can be described as leftist or even liberal. In 1980, he supported Reagan, and supported Bush's War on Terror; Canadian rocker Neil Young.; Neil probably hasn't lived in Canada for decades. Stompin' Tom politely spoke of him as if he was an American wannabe. Neil Young, in some ways, is a "CINO." In the past 30 years, American-Canadians like Colin Stetson have spent more time in Canada.; and, "Well, I hope Neil Young will remember/A Southern |man don't need him around anyhow." Randy Bachman reports that Neil and Lynryd Skynyrd are friends. I think Skrewdriver has "Sweet White Alabama."|
|Starting All Over Again||Petula Clark||Keep moving onward, even in the most difficult of times.||Like during the Bush years.||Classic/Traditional|
|Stayin' Alive||The Bee Gees||Pro-people and pro-staying alive, and this: "we can try to understand/the New York Times' effect on man."||Far more than the New York Post|
|"Stop Global Whining"||The Right Brothers||Anti-Global Warming hoax song.||British Olive growers aren't whining, though those in the Maldives might be; but so would you of half of your country went under water.|
|Sympathy for the Devil||The Rolling Stones||Reminds humanity that evil is present in the world and needs to be fought.||"I shouted out, 'Who killed the Kennedys!', when after all, it was you and me!" Uh, CP'ians: note that the song is titled SYMPATHY for the DEVIL. Must be because the music's so good, huh.|
|Stranger in Blue Suede Shoes||Kevin Ayers||Defends the right of businessmen to choose their customers: "we don't serve strangers in blue suede shoes."||We don't serve your kind.|
|Take Me Home, Country Roads||John Denver||Celebrates Southern country landscape and traditions.||More of Appalachia. Also, isn't it about a woman?|
|Takin' Care of Business||Bachman-Turner Overdrive||The work ethic and promoting self-employment.||Randy Bachman has a deserved reputation as a workaholic. He also loves what he does. He seems to know that most work sucks and is sympathetic to those who suffer it. It's probably why he helped out in Vancouver's long-lasting punk band DOA in their rendition of the song.|
|The Big Money||Rush||Pro-capitalism||With pro-capitalist lyrics such as, "It's the power and the glory, it's the war in paradise," "It's that fool on television, getting paid to play the fool," "Big Money makes mistakes," and "Big Money has no soul!"|
|The Devil Went Down To Georgia||Charlie Daniels||A deeper message here, as Daniels explains.||that it's okay to make bets with SATAN!!!! (Cause a fiddle of gold against your soul is worth it, no?)|
|Ticket to Ride||The Beatles||Lyrics describe anti-feminist attitude||or a backhanded compliment to independent woman, or maybe criticizing the no-sex-until-marriage types. "She's a |
|Turn, Turn, Turn||The Byrds||An almost word-for-word direct quotation from the Bible, specifically Ecclesiastes, with the addition of the refrain "Turn, Turn, Turn".||"a time for peace, I swear it's not too late."|
|Unborn Child||Seals and Crofts||This pro-life song was a hit single in 1974, but for some reason gets left off the Seals and Crofts greatest hits albums.||Maybe the reason was because it only made sixty-six on the Billboard Rank, the lowest on CP's list.|
|My Body||Young the Giant||"My body tells me no / But I won't quit / Cause I want more" — Powerful chorus describes how the singer defies his body's physical desire to stop working and continue working hard because he wants to reap the rewards he has earned from his hard work. It describes conservative traits (persevering with hard work) and capitalistic ideals (wanting the rewards you worked for; working past your limit because you have proper incentive).||"My body tells me no / But I won't quit / Cause I want more" sounds like an addiction. capitalism is about accumulating capital. What is described is employment.|
|"Waiting List"||Dr. Octagon||A powerful song about socialized medicine and rationing||Any powerful songs about mortgaging the house for life-saving surgery? Has Dr. Octogon spent 3 days in Canada, UK, or Europe?|
|Way Out Here||Josh Thompson||ownership, the Lord, and hard work. Also preaches the morals and ethics that are known from small towns.||Because protection by the good Lord is insufficient, one also needs a gun.|
|We Must Take America Back||Steve Vaus||Became an underground country music hit in 1992 after RCA dropped him and took the album out of print due to the political lyrics.||Either that or because he got an "NA" on the Billboard charts.|
|"We the People"||Toots Sweet||A song about the Constitution and how the current administration has been abusing the beloved document we are trying to live by.||unlike the previous administration, huh?|
|What's The Use Of Wond'rin?||Amanda Palmer||Celebrates the command: "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord." -Ephesians 5:22||Lest anyone considers Christianity as a non-sexist alternative to Islam. Check out her Ukulele Anthem.|
|Where'd You Go||Fort Minor||Shows the hardship of divorce, liberal values, and the possible future of the families of our service men who could be forced to serve in Libya.||Unlike the relative cakewalk of Bush's Iraq War.|
|You Light Up My Life||Debby Boone||One of the biggest hits ever, but liberals omit that this song is about Jesus.||Maybe liberal Wikipedia mentions it in the article.|
|Yours Is No Disgrace||Yes||Written to, and about, the troops headed for Vietnam.||Killing over 1 million Vietnamese is their disgrace. Dropping three times bombs that was in all of WWII is their disgrace. But yes, winning the military battles before Nixon and Ford presided over its political loss (though such G.O.P.'ers might suggest that the war softened up the Commies) was probably not your disgrace, maybe unless you voted for Nixon.|
|You Can't Hurry Love (You Just Have to Wait)||The Supremes||Abstinence for rock fans. Also performed by Phil Collins.||Masturbation, birth control, and non-procreative sex for rock fans.|
Debatable Whether Conservative
- Over the Rainbow (Judy Garland)
From the movie that introduced the world to Glenda the Good Witch. To Conservapedians, witchcraft is 100% real, and there is no such thing as a "good witch".
- White Christmas (Bing Crosby)
Celebrates a modified pagan festival.
- Still the One by Orleans - a very good song about marital fidelity. However, one of the singers, John Hall, later became a Democratic Congressman from New York and sued Republican presidential candidate John McCain over the use of the song in his campaign. Of course, many G.O.P.'ers debate whether McCain's conservative.

- You're welcome to organize it as you think best ... as long as its conciseness, most-important-songs-first presentation is not diluted. The Wikipedia-style of up-front tables of contents and sometimes obscure-information-first is disfavored here.--Andy Schlafly 13:22, 27 November 2011 (EST);Improvements are welcome, but I doubt alphabetizing the list, so that obscure titles end up near the top, would improve it. When visitors look at the page, they'd probably like to see some popular songs first.--Andy Schlafly 23:35, 27 November 2011 (EST); and, Another suggestion: In the interests of consistency and correct form, song titles should be in quotation marks; album titles should be in italics. BryanF 17:24, 4 January 2013 (EST)
As it is there are no albums listed, the first song on the list is conservative-content-free Living in America, the first several 10's of songs are in Alphabetical order despite prominence/obsurity or how conservative or non-conservative they are.
