Your campaign song-what would it be?

Let’s say you were running for office. What would your campaign song be? (Pretend you already have permission from the artist and all that jazz)

Mine? U2, “Beautiful Day.”

In the best of all possible worlds, “All You Need Is Love”.

Yeah, I know, dream on…

To be honest?

Crazy Bitch

“Unh, she’s a crazy bitch, but she politicks so well, she’s so up on it!”


Hey, Crazy Bitch is the best description of me ever, and as I’d have being utterly honest as my only campaign platform–it’s perfect.

I’d never get elected mind you, but it would be great to hear that as I walked to a podium.

(Though it works for Palin in a more/less perfect way.)

“We’re not gonna take it” by Twisted Sister I really hope Obama uses it, either that or “Peace Train” but that was already used.

“No More Mister Nice Guy” - Alice Cooper
I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
Until they got a hold of me

Returns a King from 300.

Too much? :smiley:

I guess “Kill the Poor” and “Political Science” are out, too?

“That ‘My Maserati Does 185’ song”

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised… I kid, I kid…:rolleyes::smiley:

“Once in a lifetime” by Talking Heads, because I’d have no idea how the hell I got there.

“Elected” by Alice Cooper, of course!


“With a purposeful grimace and a terrible smell, he pulls the spitting high tension wires down. Helpless people on subway trains scream ‘My God’ as he looks in on them”.
'Course, it may not accurately reflect my opinion regarding Japan, but otherwise, it would probably be perfect.

Since I’d want to sound like I can do stuff, some of it impressive, I think I’d have to go with “Handlebars” by Flowbot.

I can design an engine sixty four
Miles to a gallon of gasoline
I can make new antibiotics…

Me and my friends understand the future
I see the strings that control the systems
I can do anything with no assistance
I can lead a nation with a microphone…

I can make anybody go to prison
Just because I don’t like’em and
I can do anything with no permission
I have it all under my command
I can guide a missile by satellite
By satellite…

Either “Relax” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, or L7’s “Shit List.”

“Ain’t Got Nobody”

Hmm… we could go with Memories Can’t Wait by the Talking Heads;

There’s a party in my mind…And I hope it never stops
There’s a party up there all the time…They’ll party till they drop

Or maybe Alan Parson’s No Future in the Past.

Or Sheryl Crow A Change Would Do You Good?

Maybe Styx Too Much Time On My Hands :smiley:

Well, I’m a jet fuel genius - I can solve the worlds problems
Without even trying
I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
That is, as long as Im buying
Is it any wonder I’m not the president
(hes not the president)
Is it any wonder I’m null and void?


The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil”. Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste- and I have the experience to lead!

“Mr. Bad Example” by Warren Zevon, or “The Candidate” by David Bowie.

Just to get people into the mood for their next 4 years of suffering, “The End” by The Doors.

“I Want It All” by Queen. I’m going to play to the voters who favor egomaniacal tyrants.

“Push,” by Matchbox 20.

Call it truth in advertising. :smiley:
