Song to get you through the weekend: "The Barry Williams Show" by Peter Gabriel

In 2002, Peter Gabriel released "The Barry Williams Show," a scathing indictment of TV talk shows and trash culture. It's just too bad that it was put out about 4 or 5 years too late, as the popularity of Jerry Springer and his ilk had long since peaked. That's what happens when you spend 10 years making an album, I guess. The song's still a good one and the video features the oily Shooter McGavin, as well as a cameo from the real Barry Williams.
