What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary?

I remember the relief of hearing Sage Francis' Makeshift Patriot for the first time in October of 2001. It was the first song that voiced my fear of possible repression in the US. I thought there would be a wave of left-wing protest songs, but it seemed to be more of a trickle. In August of 2002 Sleater-Kinney asked in Combat Rock where the protest songs were. My question is the same as theirs: What songs protesting government reaction to 9/11 came out after the event itself and before its 1st anniversary? I am specifically looking for protest songs by American musicians.

What are some songs to get over a broken heart?

To get over a broken heart (me all in, she in 65%), I'm compiling a song list on Spotify. So far, I've got "In Too Deep" by Genesis and "Some Other Time," by Bill Evans and Tony Bennett. Now I'm stuck. It seems that falling-in-love songs were more accessible to my mind than falling-out-of-love songs. Any suggestions would be greatly if not sorely appreciated. If they help anyone out there, all the better. Thanks.

Patriotic sing-alongs for a Fourth of July barbecue

What are some patriotic songs that everyone in a group of early-twenties college-educated people would know? Accomplished accompanist (guitar) here, looking for songs most of these folks know the words to. Open to any American music from 1800s-present that captures the spirit of America on her birthday. Great sing-alongs are totally fine even if they don't quite fit the description.

What is this 90s R & B torch song?

A few weeks ago I heard a song coming out of my neighbor's window that I remember well from my youth in the late 90s -- or not so well, as it turns out. The singer is Janet Jackson or someone very similar, and the lyrics are something like, 'we can be freak (s) (y)/we won't get much sleep (?)/ blah blah blah early morn. Pretty sexy. Help!

Also like, and sharing the central, longing-filled theme of eagerness/waiting/emotional investment in a relationship that may or may not bear fruit of, Bright Eyes' "Make a Plan to Love Me" and Elliott Smith's "Say Yes".
