Jewel Wrote a Song About Walmart
Singer Jewel, who apparently is releasing an album of children’s songs, also for some reason has written a song about Walmart. No, it’s not an anti-establishment, pro-living wage song like you’re thinking, it’s more of a “roses are red, violets are blue, I love Walmart and you should too!” type of corporate-shilling little ditty. Some are calling this the best corporate whoring track since that guy who reworked U2’s “One” for Bank of America. Alright, only I’m calling it that. But it’s pretty fantastic, if you’re into songs about everyday products at discount prices.
