    I was just watching Behind The Music: 2000, (They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel now, eh?), and they were talking about Gore/Bush trying unsuccessfully to use music to reach out to voters. And they did a big thing on how Bush used "Right Now" as a cornerstone of his campaign.

    I never knew that. Never heard it used. Maybe because it was so unsuccessful.

    Should've used "Unchained"

    I'm the One would be a cool song for a politician to use. Of course, I've yet to see a candidate who could pull it off, but the sentiment of the song is cool.

    Actually Glenn, if you stop and think about what you just said. I can hear Clinton singing out the lyrics to Monica as.........well you know, as she was hanging out in the Oval office. LOL. "Come on baby show your love!" As the white house aids were singing back ground, "Show your Love!" I think I've pushed the envelope here on this thread. LOL. Out.

    Glenn: The only problem with a candidate using "I'm The One" is the lyric (which I get a kick out of) : "We come here to entertain you, leaving here we aggravate you, don't you know it means the same to ME"

    Mind you I think it would be somewhat APPROPRIATE in reference to a POLITICIAN. But the line wouldn't be very "Self Promoting" in a positive way, if you catch my meaning...


    Jeez, am I evaluating this far to closely?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Yes you are.

    I hear what you're saying, I'm just saying it's the perfect "suck your gut in, throw your shoulders back, strut to the music, I'm the baddest motherfucker in the house, vote for me or I'll burn your house down" song.

    Maybe it's just me.

    I hear ya Glenn...I was just pointing out that one (very cool and very funny) lyric...

    Maybe if a politician used that song, they would just lower the volume when that line came up lol...

    That's funny stuff FORD. I can see the headlines now. "Hard core Van Halen fan, and left wing leader, FORD shoots presidential hopfull." When asked as to why, he said, "Cause he played the mother of all Van Halen tunes, and I wasn't gonna let him do such an evil thing!" LOL. It's all about the humor people. All is good. Out.

    He tried that. Tom Petty sued him to stop using his music because he didn't want it to look like an implied endorsement. (OK actually it was "I Won't Back Down")
