Song reviews


  The Cold War by Tokyo Rosenthal


Always one to deliver an intelligent song, Tokyo Rosenthal shows his mastery of irony with his song “The Cold War” painting a convincing picture of how the threat of war is infinitely preferable to the real thing. The playful New Orleans feel of the song provides further counterpoint, as if it were needed, to the wisdom in his words and, once again, causes me to draw the conclusion that Tokyo Rosenthal is the thinking man’s songwriter.
