MEME: 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!

Name your top seven choices for a campaign theme song if you were going to run for president.

Campaign songs are like selling hot dogs – it isn't the sausage you sell, it's the sizzle. So to with the musical accompaniment on the campaign trail. There's some old stand-bys that every national candidate should have in their bag of tricks, as well as a new one or two.

  1. Happy Days Are Here Again”

  2. On A Clear Day”

  3. WAR – What's It Good For?

  4. Battle Hymn of the Republic”

  5. If The Republicans Get Into Power Again...” (sung to the tune of “Johnny Comes Marching Home”)

  6. This Land Is Your Land”

  7. She's A Grand Old Flag”

There you have it, folks. Have a good week, and don't forget to keep your powder dry.
