Fighting a Losing Battle But Having a Lot of Fun Trying to Win by Brownie Mc Gee is one of his greatest compositions, and certainly one of my favorites. It features a somewhat sophisticated blues progression together with some wonderful lyrics, and anyhow, here it is again. I’ve noticed that my posts of this song are almost popular – which means every blue moon somebody clicks on it. I think they identify with the phrase “losing battle”. Likewise, my most popular post that by far gets the most clicks is Pete Seeger’s Oh Had I a Golden Thread – which I imagine receives clicks because it mentions the word gold. Such is the extent of my popularity. Keep on playin that country music is what I say. And keep on fighting that losing battle. Register voters. March in protest.
