Desperado – Eagles (1982)
Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word – Elton John (1976)
Hard to Say I’m Sorry – Chicago (1982)
I’m Sorry, So Sorry – Brenda Lee (1960)
You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Rolling Stones (1969)
You Got Another Thing Coming – Judas Priest (1982)
Mama Said – The Shirelles (1961)
Sorry (I Ran All the Way Home) – The Impalas (1959)
Cryin’ – Aerosmith (1993)
Who’s Sorry Now? – Connie Francis (1958)

When the music stops, you should try listening to the American people.
