Womyn's music and music by women

Jill “I kissed a girl” Sobule and John Doe:

The song, wrought with irony, makes homelessness sound like an opportunity for everyone to be jubilant. It makes one think of Occupy camps, which were filled with people saddled with debt, who were possibly fighting foreclosure or who were unemployed and living on the streets. Though the song was written and recorded before the Occupy movement ignited, Sobule dedicated this song “to all the good folks pitching tents at OWS,” and explained when writing this song she imagined a “hobo town filled with destitute artists, students and working-class stiffs banding together,” which sounds like Occupy.
