A Perfect Circle - Fiddle and the Drum

In continuation of my list for the new President, this is Fiddle and the Drum, brought to you by A Perfect Circle. It's difficult for me to introduce bands that are already well known; it almost feels like they don't require introductions. Here we go anyways. A Perfect Circle was formed by the lead master mind of Tool, Maynard James Keenan, hence you would hear a lot of similarities in the two bands. For some strange reason, I love listen to APC, but can't find much appeal in Tool. Weird.

Moving on, the new presidency is marked by a very prominent and often repeated word: diplomacy. This song seems to be perfect to mark the end of the Bush era, and a time to begin reconciliation. Even during Obama's inauguration speech, hope for peace resounded. I only hope that this will be done in the most time-efficient manner, with consideration for the various countries whose people and government we've affected.
