I’m planning to have a few friends over on the night of the 4th to watch the election results come in, and not just any music will do. I’m looking for songs that will apply specifically to this election and these candidates, and to America in general. I have a few ideas but I’d like it to be more balanced. I’m into a lot of '60s and '70s music, so I probably already have a good number of songs for the Obama side. But I’m always willing to take better suggestions.
A few possibilities:
“Change is Gonna Come” - Sam Cooke
“I Am a Real American” - Hulk Hogan’s old theme song, if I can find it
Hendrix’s take on “The Star Spangled Banner” is probably a must
So is at least one version of “Hail to the Chief,” preferably an unusual one
What else should I look for?
