There are delightful musical treks through "Pennsylvania" and Wisconsin (the off-kilter take of the old football fight song "On Wisconsin"). The album closes with a short (but sweet) tribute to "Faygo", a soft drink made in Detroit. MI. It's a fascinating way to close this often light-hearted journey but reminds one that so much of this music could be considered nostalgic. The underlying message is that we can rearrange and change the plentiful wrongs in the United States by paying attention to our communities and states, working together, speaking and listening to each other, and voting. You can hum these tunes while marching, while writing to your Congress people, and in the voting booth.
