Gosnell inspired by Galactic Cowboys song?

Kermit Gosnell, the abortion clinic doctor on trial for murder and other charges in Pennsylvania, may be able to blame his behavior on the mass media.  Gosnell could argue he was compelled to act based on the song "If I Were a Killer" by the Galactic Cowboys.

Sample lyrics:

If I were a killer
I'd hide behind a doctor's door
If I were a killer
I'd scrape you off my office floor
If I were a killer

The song contained a scarcely-concealed anti-abortion message, yet garnered some MTV airplay on the Headbanger's Ball program.

No, I don't think Gosnell was inspired by the song. Just in case somebody thinks I'm serious about that.

Nifty Music: Alpha Rev

I became acquainted with the singer for Alpha Rev through his work with the supergroup Flying Colors.  I checked out a few Alpha Rev songs last year and none of them particularly grabbed me.  But then I caught this video version of the new single from the album "Bloom" and Whoa.

Great song.  Enjoy.
