Is this a good song? Well, it's cute, but it's not for me. However, I'm posting it today because I find it absolutely incredible that 1.) Jewel sang a song about Walmart and 2.) a celebrity dared to depict Walmart in a positive light. What a bizarre occurrence! I'm sure this is going to open up a huge can of worms for whatever remains of Jewel's career, but I applaud her performance because I don't have any problem with Walmart. And I'm not ignorant of many of the criticisms. I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised if the celebrities that criticize capitalism and corporations like Walmart have their products sold there. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Jewel herself had anti-capitalist leanings in that I saw the nigh-socialist Green Party of America once used a quote by her on their home page.
Sadly, I can already see that an unusually large number of people "disliked" this peppy little song.
