SONG: Don’t Let Our Youth Go to Waste by Jonathan Richman | ARTIST: Kate Bingaman-Burt

Kate Bingaman-Burt — Jonathan Richman’s “Don’t Let Our Youth Go to Waste” is an urgent sketch of a song, almost a manifesto. It’s without instruments and his voice is shaky and out of tune. Galaxie 500 recorded this song almost a decade later and added a lush landscape of sound for this manifesto to become fully realized.
