SING IT FROM THE HILLTOP Clinton
Hillary Clinton is staging the political version of TRL on her website, starting today. The Democratic presidential candidate has posted nine campaign songs and asks visitors to vote on the one she should use as her theme. The songs: "City of Blinding Light" and "Beautiful Day" by U2, "Suddenly I See" by KT Tunstall, "I'm A Believer" by Smash Mouth, "Get Ready" by the Temptations, "Ready to Run" by the Dixie Chicks, "Rock this Country!" by Shania Twain, "Right Here, Right Now" by Jesus Jones, and "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers. (Sadly, nothing by N.W.A. is in the lineup, nor is Elton John's "The Bitch is Back," Dead Milkmen's "Punk Rock Girl," or Jackson Browne's "Running on Empty.")
It seems someone finally showed Clinton how she was predominately being played on the Internet or what happens when you type in her name into, say, a YouTube search: Results include the mock 1984 ad, Clinton singing the national anthem (not flattering), and the candidate donning what critics have called a fake Southern accent amped up for a largely black crowd in Selma, Alabama—plus something called "Hillary Goes Nuts."
