Hope, Struggle, and Change with Roy Zimmerman
"Hope, Struggle and Change" is 90 minutes of Roy Zimmerman's wickedly inventive satirical songs. The Occupy Movement, the Tea Party, same-sex marriage, Socialism, Creationism, guns, taxes, abstinence and yes, presidential politics all come under tuneful scrutiny. "There's a whole new political landscape, he says, "painted by Jackson Pollock."
In twelve albums over twenty years, Roy has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He's been profiled on NPR's "All Things Considered," and he's a featured blogger for the Huffington Post. Roy's YouTube videos have garnered over six million views and tens of thousands of comments, many of them coherent. And yes, he has a website: http://royzimmerman.com/.
The Los Angeles Times says, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."
Tom Lehrer himself says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually rhyme, they don't just 'rhyne.'"
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
