You’d think that people would have had enough of Barack Obama songs. I look around me and I see it isn’t so.
And what’s wrong with that?
I blogged about the mariachi Obama song. I blogged about several reggae Obama songs. The latest comes from an L.A. rock ’n’ roll combo called Pistol Opera.
The track is called “Obama,” and it might be a goof. (Sample lyric: “Like Abraham Lincoln crossed with the Mack. Once you go Barack, you never go back.”)
Or maybe it’s just a money-making move. Could even be sincere. Who knows?
To hear “Obama” streaming on my Vox blog, click here.
It’s downloadable from eMusic and Amazon.
UPDATE (05/19/08): Hmmm. Turns out it’s a goof and it’s sincere. Eli Braden of Pistol Opera fancies himself a bit of a comedy writer. Four months ago, he blogged: “I’m Totally Gay For Barack Obama.” It’s an amusing post.
