For a while now, I have been wanting to do this post.

 

When Living Colour’s classic Cult of Personality hit the charts, I was still in high school. I knew the lyrics and understood them, but, if anything, it was enjoyed vicariously through my parents that fled Cuba in 1963, a few years after Fidel Castro took over.

 

Lately, the lyrics keep playing in my mind over and over again like a catchy tune, but that’s because I didn’t expect three decades later that the lyrics would be personal and apply to modern day politics in the United States.

 

I’ve highlighted by favorite parts and tell me those lyrics don’t apply to our Presidency now more than ever.

 

*****
Look in my eyes, what do you see?
The cult of personality

I know your anger, I know your dreams

I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality

 

Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality
Neon lights, a Nobel Prize
Then a mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set me free

 


I sell the things you need to be

I’m the smiling face on your T.V.
I’m the cult of personality

 

I exploit you still you love me
I tell you one and one makes three
I’m the cult of personality

 

Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality

 

Neon lights a Nobel Prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don’t have to follow me
Only you can set you free

 

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You gave me power in your own god’s name
I’m every person you need to be
Oh, I’m the cult of personality
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of
I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of, I’m the cult of personality
