Your Daily Death Penalty Song: Today, Phil Ochs and Diamanda Galas Meet the "Iron Lady"

As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA (Dead Reckoning),  I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America.   Kicked of yesterday with Johnny Cash doing Nick Cave's "Mercy Seat." Now, an amazing performance of Phil Ochs'  "Iron Lady" (that would be the electric chair) by Diamanda Gal├ís.
