What is a presidential campaign without a campaign song? FDR had “Happy Days Are Here Again.” JFK had “High Hopes.” George McGovern campaigned to “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” while Reagan ran to “Born in the U.S.A.” George H. W. Bush’s song was “This Land Is Your Land,” and Bill Clinton’s was “Don’t Stop.”
All the current candidates for the presidency are thinking about campaign songs. Hillary is looking for one, and so is Barack. Even Joe Biden and Tommy Thompson have songs that are played when they make an appearance.
If these third tier candidates have sort-of campaign songs, Dr Carl Perrin obviously needs one. The problem is, Perrin hasn’t listened to popular music since he became an old fogey, so he has no clue about what to use for his song.
But this shortcoming doesn’t worry Perrin at all. He knows that he can depend on you, his loyal supporters. Let’s hear your thoughts. What would be a good campaign song for Democratic candidate Carl Perrin?
