A couple of different places have posted on Mother Jones piece about popular songs used by the military in its torture techniques. It is really amazing how fast people can come up with at least 3 songs that would make them turn their own mothers over to the KGB. Because, you realize, that by listing your own torture-worthy songs, you're giving your enemies something to work with, right? So, please if it ever comes down to it, be gentle with me. Thirty seconds of any of these will get you whatever you want.

Hey There Delilah--Plain White T's
Mambo #5--Lou Bega
and the secret weapon: Swingin'-- John Anderson. Gah.
