Team LexiMonkey have been geeking out on Obama music videos lately. Here are some that have been in heavy rotation:
Andres Useche — "Si Se Puede Cambiar":
From New York City, a little Cuban salsa, "Respondele a Obama"
by Jose Conde y Ola Fresca. "Hasta mi madre Republicana / esta votando par Obama
/ Even my Republican mama / is gonna cast a vote for Obama":
Mariachi musicians say "¡Viva Obama!
" (This one is from the primaries.) "Como se dice... como se llama? Obama! Obama!"
The Mighty Sparrow, "calypso king of the world", endorses Obama:
"Barack the Magnificent"
You may already have seen "Yes We Can" by will.i.am (of the Black Eyed Peas) and friends:
john.he.is and friends speak up for
"McCain 2008: Like hope, but different"
Classical musicians don't want to be left out.
"Eine Kleine Barackmusik"
I'm not quite sure why I love this one so much, but I do. From Michael Gregory, your haloed moderator:
"VP Debate in Song and Dance"
One more from Michael Gregory, who looks *just* like Obama (um... if you close your eyes and squint real hard, that is):
"Debate highlights -- in song and dance"
And topping out the weirdness scale (well, there was one called "Barack O'Bollywood" that was just too
weird), vlad and friend boris presents 'Song for Sarah' for mrs. Palin, which the monkey and I just cannot stop singing at random times:
"Vlad and Boris"
