TEAM PICKS OF THE WEEK
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER
"Fortunate Son" was released as the war in Vietnam was dominating the media, and the thoughts of virtually every draft-eligible American male. The title referred to those few young men whose families were sufficiently politically connected so as to avoid either combat duty or the draft altogether. The lyric is delivered from the perspective of the large majority: those who were not "fortunate sons" and who had gone (or would be going soon) to war.
