Question of the Month: A Lawyer's Soundtrack

What songs do you feel accurately reflect either the legal system in America, or a lawyer's experience in navigating the system?  We at the Jackie Chiles Law Society don't act like we know everything (we don't!), so we want your input.  Of course, we came up with some suggestions of our own, just to get the ball rolling.  (Self-deprecating shrug.)  

Post your suggestions in the comments section, or compliment/criticize our offerings.  At the end of October, we'll announce the Jackie Chiles Law Society Top Ten List.  Thanks!
  • "Renegade" by Styx.  Sample lyrics: "Oh mama, I'm in fear for my life from the long arm of the law/Lawman has put an end to my running and I'm so far from my home."
  • "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash.  Sample lyrics: "I know I had it comin'/I know I can't be free/But those people keep a'movin'/And that's what tortures me."
  • "F*!@ the Police" by NWA.  Sample lyrics: "Right about now NWA court is in full effect/Judge Dre presiding in the case of NWA versus the police department... Order, order, order/Ice Cube, take the muthafu*!@#$ stand."
  • "California Sex Lawyer" by Fountains of Wayne.  Sample lyrics: "I've got big ideas/I've got backup plans/I've got cha-cha-charisma/Got the slight of hand/I'm gonna do some damage/Gonna bust some heads/I'm gonna go the distance/Then I'm going to bed."
  • "Lawyers, Guns and Money" by Warren Zevon.  Sample lyrics: "I was gambling in Havana/I took a little risk/Send lawyers, guns and money/Dad, get me out of this."

Johnny Cash: Cocaine Blues

The touching story of drugs, deception, murder, trial, incarceration, and the redemption of one man who learns...

"Early one morning while making the rounds,
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down...
I shot her down cause she made me slow,
I thought I was her daddy but she had five more...

"The judge he smiled as he picked up his pin,
99 years in the Folsom pen
99 years underneath that ground,
I cant forget the day I shot that bad bitch down"
