Now 36 years later, the second song on the album tells you all you need to know about this year's election.
The track is Crazy Train, which was written by Ozzy, guitarist Randy Rhoades, and bassist Bob Daisley. The song is a dig at the exploitation of Cold War paranoia.
But 36 years later, I would say it summarizes the 2016 election:
I've listened to preachers,That best describes Never Trump and the feeding frenzy by the media -- which blithely ignores all the warning signs about Hillary's physical and mental health.
I've listened to fools.
I've watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules.
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role.
Never Trumpers look down upon me as having fallen for Trump. But I follow the money. Hillary is a billion-dollar enterprise -- the Mafia without all the messy gangland wars. No thank you. The duped this year are the ones who think they know it all. They are living the role.
You can say Ozzy stumbled in a drunken stupor into this revelation, but I do not care how he got there: Ozzy from 1980 has better insights into this election than Charles Krauthammer today.
