Music for Obama

posted by on February 2 at 12:30 PM

There seems to be some sort of surge in music-making for Obama lately. The Grateful Dead are reuniting to play a get-out-the-vote rally for him in San Francisco. In Seattle, a bunch of musicians just recorded this… uh… funk for Obama:

And now everyone’s sending around this link to an Obama anthem produced by a member of the Black Eyed Peas. Here’s the YouTube version:

the black eyed peas one is pretty cool. the other one is, ummm, definitely something.

OK, I was going to vote for Obama but if the Grateful Dead are behind him, oh boy, what to do what to do. Couldn't they just support Nader like the dirty hippies they are?

That's not an anthem. It's a winning general-campaign commercial.

I sure HOPE we can.

Everyone get out an caucus next Saturday at 1pm...

Why has Slog ignored this news - Sarkozy marries supermodel --

From TPM:

"Bruni, 40, has been portrayed as a man-eater in the press and has previously been linked with rock stars Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton, as well as U.S. businessman Donald Trump and French former Socialist Prime Minister Laurent Fabius.

While she is a well-known leftist sympathiser, Sarkozy is a right-winger, viewed as a law and order hardliner.

.... "I'm monogamous from time to time, but I prefer polygamy and polyandry," she told the Figaro Madame magazine a year ago."

whatever. hope is good but it doesn't put dinner on the table. on the other hand, without it you're totally screwed.

Music and black and white cinema photography are so manipulative. Such a powerful tool. And I'm voting for Scarlett Johanson too.

black eyed peas can never be forgiven for exposing the world to fergie, so my mind refuses to let me be moved by the obviously great message.

Scarjo is fab. Last time around she wore a Dean sticker pasted to her silk dress at a red carpet event.
