tiene tremendo....culo

Needless to say, I was caught a bit off guard when, while searching for songs by Colombian hip-shaking superestrella Shakira (known more for her ass than her social commentary), I found a song called "Timor." Yes, that Timor - the land which saw upwards of an entire fourth of its population wiped out by Jimmy Carter's good ole pal General Suharto.

Not often the topic of any music, pop or otherwise.

A few excerpts:
It's alright, it's alright
'Cause the system never fails
The good guys are in power
And the bad guys are in jail

It's alright, it's alright
Just as long as we can vote
We live in democracy
And that's what we promote

Isn't it? Isn't it?
...

How about the people who don't matter anymore?
...

It's alright, it's alright
For a flag we die or kill
As long as we don't know it
Do it just to pay the bills

Are you saying this song is by Shakira?

Yep, should've made that clearer in the original post.
