The good Senator from the state of New York, Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton, is currently busy picking potential campaign songs. Remember, her husband (aka former President Bill Clinton) had a stroke of Adult Contemporary genius back when he ran in 1992 by picking Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow". Well, what's in Hillary's list of musical motivators?
– U2's "Beautiful Day" and "The City of Blinding Lights" (IgDana should like those picks)
– KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See"
– Smash Mouth's "I'm a Believer" (if I were to want to use this song, why not just use the original Monkees' version?)
– and an Erik Gonzalez favorite, Jesus Jones' "Right Here, Right Now" (yes, bring us into 2008, Hill, by using a song from 1992).
and some of the others include the Temptations "Get Ready", Dixie Chicks' "Ready to Run", Shania Twain's "Rock This Country", and the Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There"
Now, I don't know about you, but this list is sad with a capital S.
Any suggestions for the Democratic frontrunner? "God Save the Queen" maybe?
