Sunday Seven – Episode 104

Sometimes, a revolution can begin with a song. Back in the 1930s, FDR helped America prosper after the Great Depression and the theme song that helped him get his plans into action was “Happy Days Are Here Again.” In the 1990s, Bill Clinton’s campaign theme was “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.”

Would you believe this week’s question has something to do with songs and politics?

But before you go through your CD collection, Eugene, of “Imabug” was first to play last week! Congratulations, Eugene!

On to this week’s question!

  2. Hi Patrick 🙂

    Here are my songs. Tee Hee.

    1. “I’m A Bitch” by Meredith Brooks
    2. “Here Comes The Sun” by The Beatles
    3. “I’ll Stand By You” by The Pretenders
    4. “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye
    5. “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by Sixpense None The Richer
    6. “Soak Up The Sun” by Sheryl Crow
    7. “With A Little Luck” by Paul McCartney & Wings

    Hmmm… now I’m inspired. Maybe I will run for President. LOL. Scary thought… isn’t it? 😉 Have a good week nice man.

    Always, Carly 🙂

  3. Seven theme songs I’d use for either public entrances or for political campaigns:

    1. Wilco — What Light
    2. Shawn Colvin — Even Here We Are
    3. Poets and Pornstars — Get Your Kicks
    4. Black Crowes — Remedy
    5. Norah Jones — Any Other Day
    6. Rilo Kiley — Under The Blacklight
    7. Boston — Don’t Look Back

  4. My choices would be:
    1. That baseball song that goes “Put in Coach. I’m ready to play today.”
    2. This Little Light of Mine…I’m Gonna Let it Shine
    3. The Imperial March from Star Wars
    4. “You’re the Best” from The Karate Kid
    5. Shout by Otis Day & the Knights…that would be a lot of fun (with the words possibly changed a little)
    6. Simply the Best by Tina Turner
    7. I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General

    I still want someone to take the song “Pretty in Pink” & make a YouTube video for “Hillary in Pink.”

    I also thought of Queen’s “We are the Champions” but the “No time for losers” line might make a few people angry.

    I saw a Dresden Doll performance, that the Dresden Dolls had put online, where tthey dedicated “War Pigs” to “our friends in the White House.”
