FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Music plays an important role on the campaign trail. The right song can rally the crowd and get them pumped up before the candidate gets onstage.
But, several of the presidential candidates have had problems when it comes to picking their music. Hillary Clinton held an online contest to choose her song and came up with the "You and I" by Celine Dion. Fine, except Dion is Canadian. That song had to be scrapped.
John McCain at one point was using John Mellencamp's hits like "Our Country" and "Pink Houses". But the liberal rocker apparently wasn't comfortable with the conservative McCain using his tunes and told him to stop. McCain also ran into problems using the theme song from "Rocky," and also opted against using "Take a Chance on Me" by the Swedish group Abba because of licensing and other concerns.
Mike Huckabee tried playing "More than a Feeling" by the group Boston. They balked, saying Huckabee didn't have permission and was, "the polar opposite of most everything Boston stands for."
As for Barack Obama, he reportedly flicks through his i-Pod at campaign events and picks his favorite Stevie Wonder or Aretha Franklin tune. But on the night of the New Hampshire primary, they played Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered." Whoops. He lost that night to Clinton.
Here’s my question to you: What theme song would you suggest for any of the remaining presidential candidates?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Robert from Cranston, Rhode Island writes:
Clinton: “I guess that's why they call it the blues”, “She's a Maniac”
McCain: “War Pigs”, “Help!”
Huckabee: “Spirit in the Sky”
Nader: “Here I go again”
Obama: “Imagine”, “We're not gonna take it anymore”
And finally, Obama to McCain and Hillary: “Stuck in the Middle with you”
Obama to McCain: “You ain't seen nothing yet”
McCain: “Flintstones, meet the Flintstones, they're the modern Stone age family!”
Sher from Hagerstown, Maryland writes:
McCain: “I’ll Be Watching You”
Obama: “Born in the USA”
Clinton: “I Will Survive”
Paul: “Is there anybody there?”
Brian from Columbia, Maryland writes:
There are too many possibilities, so I’ll restrict myself to Tom Petty:
Obama: “Runnin’ Down a Dream”
Clinton: “Free Fallin’”
McCain: “The Waiting”
Huckabee: “I Won’t Back Down”
Nader: “Don’t Come Around Here No More”
Mike Huckabee: “Livin’ on a Prayer”
John McCain: “Born in the USA”
Hillary Clinton: “Can’t Get No Satisfaction”
Barack Obama: “A Change is Gonna’ Come”
Ralph Nader: “Never Gonna Get It”
Obama: “Runaway Train”
Clinton: “What Do I Have to Do To Make You Want Me”

Ruthie from Stone Mountain, Georgia writes:

Clinton: “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”
Obama: “Solid, Solid as a Rock”
McCain: “Only a Fool Believes”
Huckabee: “High Hopes”
Obama: “Yes we can”
Hillary: “Cry me a River”
McCain: “Toy Soldiers”
Robin from New York writes:
Obama: “We are the champions”
Hillary: “These boots were made for walkin'”
McCain: “Old Man River”
A fitting theme song for the whole election would be "Welcome to the Jungle”.
For the Clinton camp
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST....by Queen.
But give her credit, Sen Hillary has been ready on DAY ONE to return
to the Senate and answer her phone at 3 am.
This is it Jack.
Here are my picks for the candidates theme songs:
"The best is yet to come" – Sinatra.
McCain would fail if he tried to tie himself to any mnodern song.
It would be a good message for him from, a perosn closer to his generation.
"There's whiskey in the jar" – Classic Irish Folk Song.
She is not going to beat Obama....So it is time for a drink!
"Man in the mirror" – Michael Jackson
The message of change, and actually some excellent lyrics.
This would fit Obama very well.
Great Show as Always,
For McCain = Highway to Hell AC/DC
For Clinton = Holiday Green Day
For Obama = Better Together Jack Johnson
For Barack Obama, "U Can't Touch This" by M.C. Hammer.
For Hillary Clinton, "Go Home" by Stevie Wonder.
For Mike Huckabee, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" by Jennifer Hudson.
For John McCain, nothing, because when he was born, music wasn't invented yet.
The Texas A&M University War Hymn for Barack Obama.
Theme song from the Rocky movies is appropriate for Hillary.
Its so hard to say goodbye to yesterday by Boyz to Men for Hillary and McCain.
How about "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy' for McCain ?
For Obama. Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas. For Senator Clinton "Yet your afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme" thats from cold cold heart by Hank Williams. For John McCain a little song from the sixties that I don't remember who sung but it went like this "I love him, I love him, I love him. I will follow him. Whereever he may go......"
SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW FOR BARACK;
Eye of the Tiger for Barack. He came from the bottom to the top and it does not seem that he will stop until he reaches the White House.

Jack a fitting theme song, for the remaining candidates and our nation, as well would be, "Are the good times really over for good", by country legend Merle Haggard. Listen to this 1981 song and you'll see how much it applies, to our nation's problems and concerns. It's definitely a beer drinking song Jack.

McCain: Born in the U.S.A. (Bruce Springsteen)
Nader: Bye, Bye American Pie (Don McLean)

Jack For the Democrats it could be any number of songs from Springsteen such as Its Going To Be a Long Walk Home or his version of Seegers, How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live.

Thanks for a wonderful show!
The band's been playing Taps for Huckabee and Clinton, but someone doesn't have the guts to ask them remove their earplugs.
McCain – Adios Amigo – Jim Reeves
Obama – The Devil Went Down To Georgia – Charlie Daniels
Clinton – Baby I'm A Want You – Bread
Obama, song is (You are the man) by En Vogue.
Clinton, song is (I jus wont it to be over) by Keyshia Cole.
McCain, song is (Didn't we almost have it all) by Whitney Houston.
Obama's is easy. "Yes We Can" by will.i.am
If we only had a viable independent candidate (Lou Dobbs, you reading this), the fitting song for all three candidates would be a great Willie Nelson song, The Party's Over!
For Hillary...any song where the fat lady sings.
Al, Lawrence KS
Mike Huckabee – Mamma told me not to come by 3 dog night –Hillary Clinton – Party's over by Telsa –Barack Obama – Born to run by Bruce Springsteen –John McCain – Old man by Neil Young
Hillary ............Money by Pink Floyd
Barack.............Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd
McCain.......... Wish You Were Here by pink Floyd
Huckerbee..... Lunatics by Pink Floyd
Jack, notice a theme here. There all physcadelic, not just the songs but the canidates too!
Mc Cain – The Impossible Dream, preferrably with a windmilll in the background.
For Obama – "You Can't hide your lie'n Eyes" The Eagles
For Clinton – "I get knocked down but I get up again"
For McCain: "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)", by R.E.M. If there's any song that can sum up John McCain's campaign and his potential effect on the country, I haven't heard it.
For Huckabee: "Don't You (Forget About Me)", by Simple Minds. The title, the lyrics, and even the band name somehow seems fitting. Plus, Mike Huckabee seems like a Breakfast Club sort of person.
For Clinton: "Big Girls Don't Cry", by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. It's a classic song that everyone knows, and a lesson that she should keep in mind from now on.
For Obama: "Living in America", by James Brown. I've always wanted a presidental campaign to use the song. It's got a great beat, you can dance to it (I'd give it a 9), and it really speaks to America as a whole.
Changes by David Bowie: for Obama, it suits his campaign. Also Hail to the Chief: for Hillary, fit's her attitude. And best of all, Fortunate Son by CCR, which amplifies my position on his war hungry attitude.
OBAMA=MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR BY THE BEATLES
CLINTON=FEELIN' STRONGER EVERY DAY BY CHICAGO
MCCAIN=THE LONG RUN BY THE EAGLES
HUCKABEE=RUNNING ON EMPTY BY JACKSON BROWNE
For Obama: One moment in time by Whitney Houston
For Clinton: Back stabbers by the OJays
For McCain: Good night, Sweet Heart, its time to go...........
OOPS! I forgot a second one for Huckabee: Simple Man (Lynrd Skynrd)
Dea r Jack:
As theme songs for the remaining presidential candidates, I decided to choose titles written by the Beatles because...well, who doesn't know the Beatles.
Barack Obama: Magical Mystery Tour
Hillary Clinton: I'm a Loser
John McCain: You Never Give Me Your Money
Mike Huckabee: I'm Happy Just to Dance with You
Ron Paul: Money (That's All I Want)
Ralph Nader: The Fool on the Hill
There's no bad day that can't be overcome by listening to a song by any barbershop quartet. SInce the are all intellectuals, you could play the William Tell Overture, but then again hey want associate that with the Longe Ranger. You could choose an Opera; it s when individuals start stabbing each other in the back and, instead of bleeding, they sings.
Obama....exit music from "The Right Stuff" although those that say "High Hopes" have a good point
Hillary...... "No Feelings" by the Sex Pistols
McCain (or any OTHER Republican) .... "Liar" by the Sex Pistols
Clinton – Another one bites the dust
McCain – Bourn in the USA
Obama – You can't touch this
Nobody else is really in the race so no music needed.
For McCain-"Barbara Ann" (Bomb Iran)
For Huckabee-"On a Wing and a Prayer"
For Clinton-"Hard to Say I'm Sorry"
And for Obama-"We are the Champions"
McCain should pick a composition by Mozart. That way he could relive his childhood, which were around the years Mozart lived his.
Bucks County, PA
You and all these people who responded to this question need to get a hobby !
I have some Star Wars themes:
Clinton: Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme)

Too bad I cannot actually send you a montage – it would look really funny!
For McCain: The Fool on the Hill, by the Beatles

Obama's (to Hillary Clinton): "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goo-ood-bye...."
For Hillary: "Fighter" by Christina Aguilera!
"Makes me that much stonger, Makes me work a little bit harder, It makes me that much wiser, So thanks for making me a fighter, Made me learn a little bit faster, Made my skin a little bit thicker, Makes me that much smarter, So thanks for making me a fighter... You won't stop me. I am a fighter and I ain't gonna stop, There is not turning back, I've had enough"
Or "Survivor" by Destiny's Child
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).
Gee....Forgot all about Nader
DREAM ON BY AEROSMITH
It is sad but for Hillary I guess about the only song that seems appropriate for her and the nation is " Where have all the Flowers Gone "
Too many to sort through for the dems, but for the whole republican party:
They're coming to take me away...HA! HA!!
Barack- Didn't We (Almost Make it This Time)
Clinton- Happy Days Are Here Again
McCain- Na-Na-Na-Na, Hey, Hey, Hey, Goodbye
Mary from Florida
A good one for Huckabee is an old Hank Williams Song " When God Comes and Gathers his Jewels ".
Obama- We are the World- old ,young,black,white,hispanic, men,women all are coming together because they believe in him!!
Hillary "Mean Woman Blues- We know why, I think we can figure it out
McCain- Forever Young- cause he thinks he is.
Huckabee- "All I really want to do" Is beat John McCain and be the nominee oh yea and president too
Paul-"Leave me Alone" Nader- All or Nothing
for hillary it would be bb king's the thrill is gone
McCain: Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Obama: "Ain't no stopping us now" and "I take you there"
Clinton: Oops I did it again
The theme song for the Republican campaign should be "Send in the Clowns".
For Hillary, Tchaikovsky's Pathétique Symphony, fourth movement.
Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien for Obama or Lincoln's campaign song, a portion of which is plagarized below (though it is in public domain):
O clear the track for Honest Ob,
McClinton is behind him,
She can never win the race,
She can't keep up with Obama.
Obama - Queen: A Kind of Magic
Hillary - Journey: Don't Stop Believing - the most uncool song I can think of, which she already used in an official video
McCain - I'll ask my grandma
For Barrack Obama there is no other song more fitting than "Heaven on their Minds" from Jesus Christ Superstar.

As you are to me."
Words by Judy Collins
This song reminds me of Hillary Clintons message to struggling Americans.
Song for Obama – M.C.Hammer's "Can't Touch This"

As a Clinton sleeps her phone rings forever?
I thought it amusing that the current "phone" ad is intended to engender fear - rather it gave me additional pause for concern about Senator Clinton's lack of executive skills.
Do we want a CEO who lets the phone ring, while a world crisis could be ongoing? I think not.
The phone ad just reinforces the lack of long and short range planning, fiscal reasonableness, and lack of execution in her campaign; all of which reinforces good reasons why she lacks skill and experience as a CEO.
To Brian in Fla - Perfect, could not have said it better.
McCain's theme song should be "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number"–by the late great Aaliyah...because he is so damn old.
Huckabee's theme song should be "Never Gonna Get It"–by En Vouge...because he is never gonna get the Republican nomination.
For Hillary and Mike Huckabee I would suggest "Turn out the lights the parties over"
For John McCain I would suggest a John Denver song "Some Days are Diamonds, Some Days are stones"
Can't believe I didn't think of this earlier, Hillary Clinton's should be "It's My Party" by Leslie Gore.
For this Tuesdays Theme song for Hilliary, if she wins: Eye of the Tiger
For this Tuesdays Theme son for Obama, if he wins. Yes we can (Pointer Sisters)
For John McCain, to conservatives: If you leave me now ( by Chicago)
For Huckabee: King of the Road
McCain: The Beatles, "Come Together", or Crosby, Stills, and Nash, "Ohio".
Clinton: "Who Do You Think You Are, Mr. Bigstuff"
Obama: "Can't Touch This"
Funny you should ask–I've had my selection for weeks:
McCain: "I'll Be Watching You" by the Police
Obama: "Born in the USA" by The Boss
Clinton: "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor
Paul: "Is There Anybody There"
Sher from Hagerstown, Maryland
For John McCain–This old man
for Hillary Clinton-The old gray mare ain't what she used to be
For Barack Obama– You light up my life !! Which is true & he gives me hope to carry on !
Hillary–"It's MY Party and I'll Cry if I Want To"
Funny, I always thought that "City of Blinding Lights" by U2 was Obama's theme song.
What a superfluous topic to focus on. I expect better of Jack Cafferty, one of the few real journalists left on television (Wolf Blitzer not included in that dwindling group). Where's John Chancellor when we need him?
Clinton– You can"t always grt what you want-Rolling Stones
Obama–We are the Champions-Queen
McCain–old time rock & roll-silver bullet band
One last one, John McCain's should be "We'll Follow The Old Man" from White Christmas.
For Barak Obama...
Eminem's lose yourself. It tells Barak's story of him coming from the people.
For Hillary and John McCain? I would have to say Europes the Final countdown, or if I were to seperate the two, which is becoming harder and harder these days...
For Hillary... Gloria Gaynor's I will survive, and for John MCain... The Beach Boys.. Boperan [His words Bomb Iran]. this way the people will know EXACTLY what they're gettin. One's a self centered victim, and the other thinks it's funny to decimate other regions to show how tough we are.
"You can't always get what you want but, if you try some times you might just find, you get what you need" – The Rolling Stones
Hillary – 'The best is yet to come'.- Sinatra
Jack, the horn on my car is more inspirational than ANY of the remaining candidates.
For Barack Obama,
Lenny Kravitz' – It ain't over, 'til it's over
(though hopefully it will be over soon...)
for Ron Paul
Aimee Allen's Unofficial "Ron Paul Revolution"
(it's great by the way Youtube it and hear it yourself.
Written just for the purpose...how many others can say that?
John McCain – "Johnny B Good"
Hillary Clinton – "Who's bed have your boots been under"
B. Obama – "Brainwasher"
Mike Huckabee-Livin' on a Prayer
John McCain-Born in the USA
Hillary Clinton-(Can't Get No)"Satisfaction"
Barack Obama-"Change Gon' Come"
Ralph Nader-"Never Gonna Get It"
Hillary; Garth Brooks ,Friends in low places
Obama: You Raise Me Up
Hillary and McCain: You Raise HIM Up!
For Obama there is a Chicago song called Glory of Love that has perfect lyrics for him. It says "I am the man who will fight for your honor. I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of. We'll live forever, knowing together that we did it all for the glory of love". Since his message is one of hope, and love, and coming together for the greater good. I think that one is perfect.
For Hillary I think that old Paula Abdul song Cold Hearted Snake is perfect for her..but just change he to she..."She's a cold hearted snake, look into her eyes...uh oh...she's been telling lies".....Yep, sums her up just perfect!!
Obama – "Yes We Can" by Will.I.am
Clinton – "Sha na na na. Hey hey hey. Goodbye" by The Dave Clark Five
McCain – "Stupid Girl" by Garbage
If Hillary wins
Ain't No Stopping Us Now.
McCain: Here we Go Again.
Obama: 911 is a joke.
McCain: How 'bout "A Thousand Lies", by Hypocracy?
Like all things in life, this question can be answered with Metallica
Obama: Holier Than Thou
Clinton: Master of Puppets
McCain: Seek and Destroy
Huckabee: For Whom the Bell Tolls
Paul: The Shortest Straw
Nader: The Thing that Should Not Be
Huckabee – Dream a little dream with me.
Hillary – Wishin on a star
McCain – Ever;ything bad is good
Obama – We're a winner
please remove my last post, i didn't realize what that song "white punks on hope " was about.......i guess i should of read the lyrics instead of just the title.
again so sorry!!!
" STAND BY YOUR MAN by Tammy Wynette for HILLARY CLINTON
" Dirty Lowdown " by Bozz Skaggs for Barack Obama
" GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER " By Elmo n Patsy for
David Crosby , Austin , Tx
Hillary: Taking care of business
Obama: Island girl
pe.rfect song for Obama, Pointer Sisters "yes we can can. this describes his new focus for America."
For Ron Paul - here's a Depression ditty:
"We ain't got a barrel of money, we may be ragged and funny, but we'll get along, singing our song, side by side ...".
Of course, when McCain runs out of cash, his people can also use this as a campaign song.
Cafferty – once again. Bias. I noticed you did not mention that Barack Obama used the offensive Jay Z rap song "99 Problems" after his Iowa win.
Obama – "The Age of Aquarius" by the Fifth Dimension
Clinton – "Lying Eyes" by the Eagles
McCain – "Over There" by George M. Cohan
Obama:Born to Run by Springsteen, I Put A Spell On You by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Waitin on the World to Change,by John Mayer.

McCain: Gimme Your Money Please by BTO, Let's War by Plastic Constellations, I Won't Back Down by Tom Petty
Huckabee: Running on Faith by Eric Clapton, Countin on a Miracle by Bruce Springsteen.
Al Gore: Waiting in the Weeds by the Eagles
Ron Paul's Theme song (He is still in the race) should be
"Ron Paul Revolution Theme Song" by Aimee Allen
Watch it on YouTube – search for video SBCKMTo210k
Obama – "This is Why I'm Hot" by Mims
Hillary – "I'm Dreamin" by Christopher Williams
McCain – "This Old Man" by Author Unknown (Nursery Rhyme)
Huckabee – "Never Can Say Goodbye" by the Jackson 5
Great theme for Obama's campaign: the theme from "The Sting"
Clinton – "End of the Road" by Boys to Men or "Ain't To Proud To Beg" by The Temptations
Obama – "Faith" by George Michael or "A Change Would Do You Good" by Sheryl Crow
McCain – "The Song Remains the Same" by Led Zepplin
Huckabee – "Never Gonna Get It" by En Vogue
Great Question Jack,
I suggest each campaign go with a song by Ray Charles...
Ralph Nader: Born To Lose
John McCain: Here We Go Again
Mike Huckabee: Hit The Road Jack
Ron Paul: You Don't Know Me
Barack Obama: What'd I Say
Hillary Clinton: Crying Time
and Bill Clinton: I Got a Woman
Except that Bob Seger's song suggests hardship and struggleing for survival in oppressive economic conditions that John McCain's presidency would likely deliver, the song "Against the Wind" certainly brings up an image of old man McCain leaning into the winds of change and making very little progress.
for Hillary, any Bruce Springsteen will do, he is a good Democrat.
Hillary – Sisters are Doing It For Themselves
Obama – You're So Vain
McCain – Theme Song from No Country For Old Men
Hilary should be using Simon and Garfunkels song as her theme now......" Slip Sliding Away "
For Hillary, "Dude Looks Like a Lady" by Aerosmith
John McCain: "Don't Fear the Reaper" Blue Oyster Cult
Huckabee: "The Pusher" by Blind Melon
Hillary: "We Are Not Going to Make It." The Presidents of the United
States of America. (haha)
Obama: "We're Not Gonna Take It! (Anymore)" Twisted Sisters
Here are my picks for campaign songs:
Huckabee: The Impossible Dream
McCain: Young At Heart
McCain – Crazy by Patsy Cline
Clinton – Another One Bites the Dust – by Queen
Obama – We Are the Champions – by Queen
Appropriate campaign songs for the remaining contenders should be:
Huckabee... "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones
McCain... "Same Old Song and Dance" by Aerosmith
Clinton... "Black Magic Woman" by Santana
Obama... "Sitting on Top of the World" by Cream
For Obama I would chose YES WE CAN, CAN , great song
from The Pointer Sisters. Very empowering theme.
Hillary Clinton – When Will I be Loved – the Everly Brothers
John McCain – Luck be a Lady Tonight – Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra
Mike Huckabee – Help – the Beatles
Barak Obama – Oh, Lord it's Hard to be Humble – Mac Davis
Ron Paul (remember him?) – Hello, is Anybody Out There – Pink Floyd
Ralph Nader – He's a Real Nowhere Man – the Beatles
Little River Band's "Take it Easy on Me," for Hillary Clinton, Bon Jovi's "It's My Life," for John McCain, and Peter Frampton's "Do You Feel Like We Do," for Barack Obama. Did I just date myself here?
For the superdelegates: Switch (Will Smith):
"Oh, you just gonna stand there, huh
What you too cute to dance, or you scared
It ain't really that hard to do and
I aint trying to be in love with you and
All I wanted was a moment or two to
See if you could do that switch-a-roo and
Music certainly does play an important role on the campaign trail, and society in general. In Sen. Obama's case, given his politics of change and fierce urgency of now i would suggest NOT using well known dated songs. Why not try something new, something different, a change if you will. Sen. Obama needs a song capable of inspiring his movement. 'The Time is Now' by Ohio artist Illogic is perfect. Senator, have your people get my email address from CNN and i'll forward an mp3 for your i-pod.
Micshon, Columbus Ohio
Love the 1st post:
Brian, Tampa, Fl February 29th, 2008 2:48 pm ET

This is it Jack.
John McCain:the Beatles- I am the Walrus
Hillary Clinton: the Beatles- John Williams- Jaws theme

Obama – Get Up, Stand Up (Bob Marley)
Clinton – Could Have Been (Tiffany)
Huckabee – And I Am Telling You [I'm not Going] (Jennifer Holiday)
McCain – My Way (Frank Sinatra)
I am a Hillary supporter. I think Senator Obama should use "Better as a Memory"..(than as your man) by Kenny Chesney
Clinton: "Don't Stop Believing" – Journey
Obama: "War" -Edwin Starr or "Dream On" – Aerosmith
McCain: "Iron Man" – Black Sabbath
This is too hard to resist.
Ralph Nader – "I Don't Give A ****" by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz
Hillary Clinton: "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi
Barack Obama: "Change the World" by Eric Clapton, or "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy
" GARDEN PARTY " by Ricky Nelson for John McCain

" MISTER CELLOPHANE " from CHICAGO for Mike Huckabee
" WAR WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR ? " by Edwin Starr for Barack Obama
Ricky Nelson , Heavens Gate , Calif
When Senator Obama won in Iowa I heard a theme song that didn't resonate with him or with his campaign...I immediately sent an email to them and expressed they neede to use... SIGNED SEALED DELIVERED by Stevie Wonder as atheme song...Although he didn't win in New Hampshire...The song has continued because of the fact it gives credence to his platform. (1)...He SIGNED that he would run for President... (2)He has DELIVERED powerful messages of hope change and empowerment to motivate the people to become invoved in the political process...(3)He's willing to say I'M YOURS if you join me in an effort to make change for a better future for our country in voting me as the next President of the United States of America.
Other than Signed Sealed Delivered .....Any song with YES WE CAN....Donnie McClurkin, or The Pointer Sisters.
Dream On (from Aerosmith)- Obama
Respect (From Aretha Franklin) – Clinton
For Barak Obama... Eminems Lose Yourself
... Because brother...
"You only get one shot
miss your chance to flow
This opportunitty comes
once ina lifetime so
You better Lose yourself [in the movement]..."
Obama, It's all Smoke and Mirrors. or Beauty is only skin deep.
Hillary, It's my party and I'll cry if I want to.
McCain, The Rocky Theme
Obama: either Genesis' "Land of confusion" or En Vogue's "Free your mind."
We're a winner by The Impressions for Obama.
For Obama I would have to say "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield
We the people of our United States have been through so much, we have to be careful that there are now still some that would taunt, and ridicule those that would dare to try change, and better our existence. We have now heard the bearing of falsehoods. We have heard the old relic cry's, and echo's of the deep whispered southern tone of lynching, the attempts of lies, and not hidden prejudices against attempts to bring back America's honor, and it's dignity. The stolen good moments turned into vivious, trashy politics. How can we as a whole stand up to thepower of money, and the political party that is not willing to give it all up? We had better find a way. If we the American people want to survive we must do it now, or we will be lost. Our future will be deeply buried in the past, all because we did not take a stand against power, and money. Change is indeed what our country needs. Change will be our survival.
For Obama I would have to say “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield
What else? I can do anything better than you do, I can do anything better than you!!!!!! Great for the democrats! McCain should use The Lords Prayer!!!!!
McCain: Theme from "War of the Worlds"
Clinton: "Get a Job"
Obama: "New Kid on The Block"
Huckabee: "When Will I Be Loved?"
Ron Paul- "The Sound of Silence"- apparently not enough people heard this prophet and only heard the silence... good thing the message is written on the subway walls and tenement halls... literally sometimes, with the number of bumper stickers and handwritten "Ron Paul"s I've seen....
Barack Obama: "Gonna be Some Changes Made"–Bruce Hornsby
Hillary Clinton: "Good Riddance (Time of your Life)–Green Day
Mike Huckabee: "I'm Still Standing"–Elton John
John McCain: "Hanging by a Moment"–Lifehouse
– I Believe I can Fly for Obama
– They Try to make me go to rehab for Hilary

Obama – "Imancipate yourselves from mental slavery non but
ourselves can free our minds" *BOB MARLEY*
Hillary – "How did I ever let you slip away(The White House)
never knowing i'll be singing this song someday" *R KELLY*
Well since there seems to be a problem with using artists from other countries for these theme songs, I'll suggest songs from a single group – The Beatles. (Shhh – Most of the candidates won't know they were from England)
John McCain – "Across the Universe" – Refrain-(Nothings gonna change my world)
Mike Huckabee – "Get Back"
Ron Paul – "Nowhere Man"
Hillary Clinton – A medley of"Help" AND "Day Tripper"
Barack Obama – "Here Comes the Son"
Rock on, Jack!
SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME.
Obama – Wrapped Around Your Finger by The Police
Hillary Clinton – Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis
McCain – Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums by A Perfect Circle
You guys are hilarious! Here are my picks.
Clinton – two N*SYNC songs – "Gone" or "Bye Bye Bye"; alternative – "Neither One of Us (Wants to be the first to say Goodbye) – Gladys Knight
Barack Obama – The Impressesions – "We're a Winner" or "Keep on Pushin;" alternate – Theme to "The Jeffersons"
Mike Huckabee – "Pray" – MC Hammer
Nader – "One of these kids is doing his own thing" from Sesame Street
Clinton: Last Resort – Papa roach
Obama : Dream Weaver
Mcain: Here come the hawks ( Chicago black hawks theme song)
Huckabee Against all odds
For Obama campaign:
"Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie"
I think all his dreams are just that, fantasies; and nevermind the "truck in the ditch" routine, we'll have a president who" drove the chevy to the levee but the levee was dry"!!!
Indicative of his ideas and how he plans to implement them – empty!!!
Obama – Kissing a fool – George Michael
Obama – Smile like you mean it – Killers
Obama – Like a drug – Kylie Minogue
Clinton – Never can say goodbye – Jackson Five
Clinton – Knock Em' Out – Lilly Allen
Clinton – My Destiny – Lionel Richie
For Clinton – "Sisters are doing it by themselves" by Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin.
Other than that – "Don't Rain on My Parade" by Barbra Streisand. Babs has endorsed her and I bet that's exactly what Hillary thinks that Obama is doing to her.
Jack. since Hillary has a problem with beinf first i"ll start with Obama.
WIn by Brian Mc Knioht
Mc Cain..... Amazing Grace
Huckabee....It ain't over "til it's over
Hillary....She thinks still care or The Door by George Jones
For Senator Obama: Don't Stop Believing, Journey.
From FT Lewis, WA
Hillary – I guess that's why they call it the blues – Elton John (I'd be depressed too after 11 straight losses)
Or "She's a Maniac" – Flashdance (If it's one thing a growing number of Democrats and Republicans can agree on is that the title of this song is true for Hillary)
McCain – War Pigs by Black Sabbath (Only 95 more years in Iraq John?)
Help! – The Beatles (He's gonna need alot of it against Obama come November)
Huckabee – Spirit in the Sky – Norman Greenbaum (This is what Huckabee needs at the moment to pull off a victory against McCain)
Nader – Here I go again – Whitesnake (Yet sadly 99% of us wish he wasn't)
Obama – Imagine – John Lennon (This song and Obama's message say it all)
We're not gonna take it anymore – Twisted Sister (Fighting for change in America daily, a perfect song for Obama)
Obama (to McCain and Hillary) – Stuck in the Middle with you (Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right..That sentence alone describes his competiton for president)
Obama (to McCain) – You ain't seen nothing yet (A reminder that it's only march and McCain hasn't even seen nothing yet from Obama in terms of the election, running one, and of course debating)
Opps, forgot McCain . . .
Flintstones, meet the Flinstones, they're the modern Stone age family!
Seems to me that Obama's perfect song would be "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer. I seem to remember him using this in the past and it fits perfectly with his theme, and is representative of him being in tune with younger voters.
Springsteen's "Lonesome Day" would be a great song for Hillary right now. The opening lines "Baby once I thought I knew, Everything I needed to know about you... I didnt really know that much" seem to reflect every mistake her campaign has made in the last few months.
Perhap's Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" is an appropriate song for McCain's candidacy, or do we think that would make him look like what he is? Old.
For Clinton, it is so obvious: "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"
(the "party" being the Democratic Party, which she seems to think she owns and/or owes her the nomination)
For Hillary: The song from the Sound of Music: "So long, farewell........goodbye"
First of all, that ad: If the phone rings at 3am in a Clinton White House, it's probably for Bill.
For Barak – "Little Grass Shack" – "The Hawaiian Beach Boys" Go Punahou!!
For Hilary – "It's A Wonderful World" Louis Armstrong
For McCain – It's A Small World – Disney On Parade!!
Ron K. San Diego
Clinton: "It Takes A Woman" (from the musical "Hello, Dolly!")
- The song explains how men need women to clean things up around the house, just like Washington needs a woman to clean up the mess that is now known as Washington, DC.
Obama: "I'm The Greatest Star" (from the musical "Funny Girl")
- This defiant and bombastic song displays the true talents of the musical's star, which is preforming in front of an audience. Hmm, sounds like Obama, at least when he uses his own words...
McCain: "Where or When"
- This classic song laments "I can't remember where or when..." something that the elderly McCain would probably say, along with I can't remember who or what or why or how...
Huckabee: "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" (from the musical "Dreamgirls")
- Even Effie White took the hint to get off the stage and stand aside.
Nader: "Stoned Love" (by the Supremes)
- Hate to break it to ya, hon, but legalized marijuana is not going to happen in the US.
HRC – American Woman Lenny Kravitz
BO – Yes We Can Will I Am
McCain – Born in the USa The Boss
The only problem is that all the artists has endorsed or spoked publically for OBAMA!

Obama– You ain't seen nothing yet.
This is your best question yet...fun, fun, fun. I don't know about the others, but Obama, once again, got it right the first time. He selected a song that would take him from the beginning to the end of his campaign. Stevie Wonder..."here I am Baby...Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours". That's what I'm talking about!
Obama – Puff the Magic Dragon

"Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the
middle with you".
Obama – “Yes we can” by Bob the Builder

McCain – The Old Cugged Cross

Theme songs? Here are my picks!
Obama-How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)" by Marvin Gaye
Clinton- Cry me a River- Justin Timberlake
McCain- Frank Sintara-It was a very good year
Huckabee- Sam Cooke- Sad Moods
Nader-Spinners-Game People Play
Obama vs. McCain theme song Get Ready by The Temptations
McCain – Glory Days
Clinton – How Can I Miss You if You Won't Go Away
Obama – Can't Touch This
Huckabee – Losing My Religion
Nader – Fool on the Hill
Paul – Who Are You/?
FOR HILLARY – MR. GRINCH
theme from the Christmas cartoon.
Cafferty: This was fun to read...don't pay any attention to the people whining about it (they sound just like Hillary). Posts don't always have to be serious and I enjoyed this one!
Hillary's should be "Slip Sliding Away" by Paul Simon
For Obama: We are the champions!
For Clinton: Baby Got Back, and she should use it to usher herself on home. Oh wait she doesn't have one!
I think Obama should go for "We are all in this Together" from the High School Musical soundtrack. It's a nice song and sends the message that he is there for you.
Obama – "Climb every mountain"
Clinton – "Born to run"
McCain – "Tower of song" (Leonard Cohen)
Huckabee – any song featuring Zeideko (Cajun) accordion music
Nader – "The Cure" (Tim Noah) ("Welcome to my labratory please be at home / you're here to take the cure!")
The next contest should be a movie that each candidate will use as a source for themed advertisements...ha-ha
Barrack Obamas theme song should be Simply the Best. he inspires the best in all of us of what is possible and can be if we only work together.
Regardless of the outcome of the election he will have inspired millions of Americans with his message of hope and possibility. If he is elected president his leadership will influence world affairs so we will once again
to concentrate one the things we are all share in common love of children and our common humanity and build a consensus to build on globably.
He is unique this election season. his is simply the best because he inspires us to aspire to be our best once again, together
New Glasgow NS
One song for all (including Americans) :
God Bless the USA (I'm Proud To Be An American) – Lee Greenwood.
Maybe this will remember us all who we are!
God Bless the USA (I’m Proud To Be An American) – Lee Greenwood.
Maybe this will remind us all who we are!
Jack this song would a be appropriate for Senator Hillary Clinton and all women!!!!!!!!!!!
by Shania Twain
"Not just a Pretty Face". How true..... how true.......................We women will prevail and do stick together
One Million women for Hillary
Obama–I Hope (Dixie Chicks) or The Boy Feels Strange (Melissa Etheridge) Perfect Lie (Sheryl Crow)
Clinton–Forgiveness (Collective Soul) Turn this World Around (Amy Grant)
Huckabee–Letter to God (Sheryl Crow) Last Hard Bible (Kasey Chambers)
McCain–We're all gonna die someday (Casey Chambers)
Nader–Listen (Collective Soul)
Ron Paul..."Peace Sells" by Megadeth! Particularly the line...."Whaddaya mean I couldn't be the president of the United States of America...Let me tell you something...It's still WE THE PEOPLE...Right??"
Hillary Clinton should use the song "The Sign", or at least listen to it. "I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes" Hillary should have seen the sign by now: Obama and his movement have become a force that she simply won't be able to deal with much longer.
McCain = Mac the Knife by Sinatra
Obama = Locomotive Breath by Jethro Tull(Old Charlie's stole the handle; and the train, it won't stop going)
Hillary = (running) Against the Wind by Bob Segar
They should ALL have the same theme song. "Stuck in the Middle with You" fits all of them. One of the lines of this song goes – Clowns to the left of me! Jokers to the right! Here I am stuck in the middle with you. No matter how this election turns out we're ALL stuck in the middle!
You know ' Iam tried of people tryin to make Sen. Obama something that he's not. And I agree with Mrs. Obama when she said that people
are using Sen. Obama's name as a fear tatic. Why can't he be just a man like any other man running for the top job? Are people afaid that
he might just do better than the bigot, that is already in power. Just a question
Dr Paul – Revolution
Obama, Huckabee, McCain, Clinton, and Nadar – Land of Confusion by Phil Collins
McCain should use "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' by U2,
Barack Obama, "All I Have to Do is Dream", Everly Brothers, and Hillary Clinton, "I Am Woman", Helen Reddy. They all would like "Hail to the Chief", but only one will earn that theme song.
Senator Obama-I Won't Back Down (Tom Petty)
Senator Clinton-The B!%#& Is Back (Elton John)

Obama – I love you – you love me – we're a happy family / Barnie the dinosaur
Clinton – My time has come / The Hopefuls
McCain – My bark is worse than my bite / The Dentures
Jack I just read that a song by Celine Dion had to be scraped because she is Canadian Ironic : Can't use middle names, nor Canadian Songs Only in America......such insults among friends
Clinton – Lost One by Jay Z
McCain – It's a Hardknock Life by Jay Z
Huckabee – Jigga Who? Jigga What? by Jay Z
Obama – Encore or 99 Problems (I got 99 problems but a ____ aint one) by Jay Z
Michelle Obama to Barack – Umbrella by Rihanna ft. Jay Z
Houston for Obama!
Obama: "Ain't Nothing Going to Break My Stride"
Hillary: "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" Motley Crue
McCain: "On the Road Again" Willie Nelson
Huckabee: "Dream" Everly Brothers
Nader: "My Lovin (You're Never) Never Gonna Get It" En Vogue
John McCain "Diary of a madman". Hillary, how about "Genie in a bottle".Barack ,how about "can't touch this"
For Barack Obama I think the song Changes by David Bowie would be a good song. I have a vision right now of Barack Obama taking the podium at the Democratic National Convention with the part of the song that goes "ch-ch-changes" playing in the background. It is almost a perfect fit for him I think.
Clinton Campaign- (It's Now or Never by Elvis Presley)
McCain Campaign- (Hit the Road Jack by Ray Charles)
Obama Campaign- (Come Together by the Beatles)
Theme song for Obama should be Living in America by James Brown because all Americans young old all races can identify with that song. Plus it is up beat like Obama's campaign.
Hillery One girl revoulation
She thinks she's going to change the world. She is not even being heard.
Obama- We Are The Champions He won't back down and he will be our next presidant
Mccain/Clinton/Obama- Imagine by John Lennon
Dr. Ron Paul- God Bless America
My roommate and I were in the car when "Suddenly I see" by KT Tunstall came on the radio. We both agreed it would serve Hillary well, not enough to get us to vote for her, but help us bare listening to her desperate voice...a voice not accurately representing the desperation of Americans at the moment...so the song would be moving, although misleading.
For John McCain – "Hardcore Troubadour" by Steve Earle
For the Republicans this year it should have been "TAPS"; however, now I am not so sure.
Knive's Out – Radiohead
Hillary Clinton – Wanted Dead or Alive
A fitting theme song for the whole election would be "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses.
Mike Huckabee should be using:
"All I need Is A Miracle" by Mike & The Mechanics
I have the perfect song for Hillary Clinton. Heart of Glass by Blondie
Her Heart will be glass by Wednesday March 5th
Russ in IL
For Hillary Clinton:
"SHE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY" – DONNA SUMMER – WOMEN UNIT, VOTE HILLARY!
For Hillary Clinton – "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to".
Hillary Clinton's song should be "I Can't Get no Satisfaction". It is an apt metaphor for her campaign.
Hillary might have something here...
Celine Dion's "Titanic theme song" is pretty much perfect for her campaign.
All of them: "Must be the Money" by Deion Sanders
The Clinton campaign should think about using The Thrill is Gone by B.B. King
Hillary's New Song should be "I Will Survive!"
For the whining, negative campaigning, threat of lawsuits, etc. leading up to Crucial Tuesday: "Kind of a Drag" by the Buckinghams
Simple. Springsteen's Born to Run!
Hillary – Slip sliding away
Far ALL the candidates:
Thne last verse of the Kingston Trkios's Merry Minuet comes to mind.
"They're rioting in Africa,
There's strife in Iran,
What Nature doesn't do to us,
Will be done by our fellow man".
The song is never over, and the melody lingers on.
the final countdown should be used, that song is awesome and representes evertyone from the youth to all of the rebellious seniors. barrack could win with just this.
For McCain: "Another Brick In the Wall" by Pink Floyd
Obama: Rhymes and Reasons, John Denver – "come and stand beside us, we can find a better way."
Clinton: She's Always a Woman to Me, Billy Joel – "she only reveals what she wants you to see"
McCain: Eve of Destruction, Barry McGuire – "can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today"
CAMPAIGN THEME SONG FOR BARACK OBAMA:
"IMAGINE" BY JOHN LENNON
PERFECT FOR BARACK'S MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE!
For Hillary: "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"
Big Girls Don't Cry by The Four Seasons
Obama: We Are The Champions
Clinton: Stand By Your Man
McCain: Another One Bites The Dust
For Huckabee, a good theme song at this point in time is "Living on a prayer" by Bon Jovi. hahah
"Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me" by Warren Zevon
Hillary Clinton – Ice, Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
Obama – YoungBloodz – Presidental (also known as Geroge Bush)
For Barack: "Ding Dong, the Wicked Witch is Dead."
For Clinton: "Turn Out The Lights, the Party's Over."
For McCain: "American Hero," by Toby Keith.
Huckabee – Never Gonna Give You Up
Obama – The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Clinton – 1812 Overture
McCain – It's raining men
I think on March 4th Hillary Clinton should play ANOTHER ONE BITE'S THE DUST
After that she should get her handbag, pack up and leave!!!
The Clinton's desperation tactics are the reason she won't win the White House
I think obama should stick to the song "I GOT CRUSH ON OBAMA" sung by obama girl.Or the song "YES WE CAN" made by Will.i.am. There both popular on "YOUTUBE", he should just run off on that. It's not like people don't know the songs.I'm just 14 years old and even i'm keeping with the race. I really don't think picking a good song, is really going to help them in the long run.
Hi Jack, Not for this campaign, but a perfect song for the twice unelected retarded son of former president bush: "White Punks on Dope," by The Tubes.
Keep up the great work!
McCain's theme song should be "Same as it Ever Was" by the Talking Heads.
My roommate and I also liked "99 problems" for Obama. Supposedly, it was used in IOWA, but I'm not sure.
Please issue a correction. Obama did not lose in NH. He and Clinton each took 12 delegates.
Hillary- "I will survive" by Gloria Gaynor
For Hillary the song is simple. "Got to Give it Up" by Marvin Gaye. It's time for her to concede for the good of the democratic party. Let's get focused on McCain and what's left of the Republican party instead.
Takin Care of Bussiness
Let all the candidates play the US National Anthem. On an instrumental of the sort. I am sure it would sound more relevant to the cause.
Maybe McCain should settle for "Nearer, My God, To Thee."
This is the easiest question you have ever asked Jack.
The theme from Jaws...any or all the candidates can use it.
I was going to explain, but really I think the music speaks for itself.
Feelling Stronger Everyday by Chicago
Barack Obama's theme song should be Tupac Shakur's "Letter to the President." Anyone who knows the song immediately understands the depth of this song in relation to Obama's presidential bid.
Anything from U2 would be great for Obama. I'm not sure about Hilliary but "You can't touch this" for McCain would be a riot! Maybe literally.
How about "Hard Act to Follow" by Brother Cane?
"The Times They Are A'Changin' ' by Bob Dylan– for Barack Obama.
Clinton's Theme song should be Led Zeppelin's "Ramble On". It may certainly be the last campaign theme song she plays.
How about The Star Spangled Banner???
John, I think 'Its The End of The World As We Know It' by the group REM would be appropriate for John McCain because one hundred more years in Iraq would be a royal hell for America.
John McCain should play "Happiness is a Warm Gun" by the Beatles. How befitting.
"We got to get out of this place....if its the last thing.." don't exactly remember the total and correct title, but getting out of the GW Bush mess makes it seem appropriate.
Perhaps Paul Simon would allow Senator Clinton to use "Slip Slidin' Away."
From Kingston, WA, where I got to vote for Obama twice -
Let all the candidates play the US National Anthem. Or an instrumental of the sort. I am sure it would sound more relevant to the cause.
Little Wonders- by Rob Thomas for Barack Obama because he came into this campaign as an extreme underdog and has done so good. gObama!!!
A Change is Gonna Come, by Sam Cooke.
For Hillary: "We shall overcome, TUESday..."
North Bay, Ontario
Barack Obama could unit any late comers with "WE ARE THE WORLD" as done by Michael Jackson or Luciano Pavarati
Hillary's song: THE PARTY'S OVER
Obama doesn't need to "pick" a song- people are writing original songs FOR him! Look at the YouTube hit video for "Yes We Can"- millions of views!
For Obama John Mayer Waiting on world to change
Obama: All Star by Smashmouth
McCain: Too Old to Rock n Roll, too young to Die
Huckabee: Dueling Banjos
Hey how about for Hillary Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow". That did wonders for me as a 16 year old high school student in 1992 watching Bill, Hillary & Chelsea parading around on stage with confetti pouring from the ceiling. Too bad there isn't a comarable song called "Don't Stop Thinking About Yesterday".
McCain should use either Paul McCarthys "Live and Let Die" or Jethro Tull's "too old to rock and roll". Meanwhile Obama should use Queens 'We are the champions"
I think that since Barak Obama tells of change that will happen to this country if he's elected, his song should be "The Wind of Change" by the Scorpions.
I would suggest "Send in the Clowns". I think it was recorded by Joan Baez in the 60's. Do the candidates think we're all idiots and believe everything they say?
For Hillary i would choose
I did it my way by Frank Sinatra
Linda from California
Campaign song for all of them:
"Who Let the Dogs Out?"
How about just the National Anthem.
Hey.... I always felt proud of our National Anthem.....
I AM Woman bu Ann Murray For Hillary
Clinton – "The tide is High" by Blondie the lyrics say it all.
"The tide is high, but I'm holding on,
I'm gonna be your number one –
I'm not the kind of girl who gives up just like that,
They dont need a song. What they need is the endorsement of Dora The Explorer for the support of hispanics.
from Charlotte, NC. For Hillary - It's too late by the Carpenters.
Obama...We are the champions
Hillary...These boots were made for walkin'
McCain...Old Man River
obama should use the campaign song by will i am yes we can it has a diverse group of people and tell what he is trying to say yes we can see the video
hillary and mccain might try the song "high hopes"....high in the sky, apple pie hopes....
Ever since Hillery's " shame on you speech" All I kept thinking was that Elton John's song...can you guess which? She's Back.
There is only one song for Barack Obama – now and in January, and that is: "Hail to the Chief"!
Michele in Hollywood
The Disco Mega Hit for Mike Huckabee...
"NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE"
For Hillary, I think an appropriate theme song would be "The Downward Spiral" by Nine Inch Nails – for very obvious reasons.
John from Burlington, Ontario
For John McCain... it's definitely gotta be "I'm a Loser" by The Beatles. It's a song only septagenarians will remember, and certainly indicative of his chances of ever becoming President!
for Mike Huckabee:
2 Legit 2 Quit
McCain – "It's Hard Out There for a Pimp"
Clinton – "I Will Survive"
Obama – "Hail to the Chief"
How bout "Hillary Clinton (Hillary's the Sh*t)" by David Montalvo for Hillary.
Hillary: Roll With The Changes (REO Speedwagon)
Obama: New Kid In Town (The Eagles)
"Born in the USA" by Bruce Springsteen seems a natural at this point for John McCain.
Aretha Franklin's "Think" would be perfect for Hillary Clinton.
The perfect song for Barack Obama? "Magic Man," by Heart.
-Kathy in Florida
I think the perfect song would be Working together- from Frankie Beverly and Maze. And my father recommends Young at heart-Frank Sinatra since the lyric is fairy tales can come true!
My suggestion for Mccain's song: "The Fool On The Hill", by the Beatles
For Obama – I would choose a song from Enigma – "Rivers of Belief
Obama should definately use "Waiting on the World to Change" by John Mayer.
Clinton: Billy Swan's "I Can Help"
Obama: Boston's "More Than a Feeling"
Hillary should use "Goodbye Stranger" by SuperTramp
"Goodbye stranger. It's been nice...hope you find your paradise...
tried to see your point of view...hope your dreams will all come true."
The ultimate song for Barack Obama is 'Ain't no Stopping Us Now' , version by The Rippingtons..... pass that along to Barack, I'm sure his campaign will love it.
I think it is time for Clinton to say goodbye but she seems to live in denial.
I will suggest the song "Say Goodbye" by Chris Brown to her
MCcain is the Stones, Paint it Black.
Hillery needs "Brass in pocket"
Any Barry White song well work for Barrack.
Clinton - "Suddenly I See"
Obama– "We Didn't Start the Fire"
McCain– "I Would Walk 500 Miles"
Shady Side, MD ... for Obama – "A Change Will Do You Good" by Sheryl Crow
For Hillary; "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" by U2
I think Senator McCain should take the next technological leap though and pic a campaign movie, "No Country for Old Men".
Hillary – "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", Bob Dylan
McCain – "Old Man", Neil Young
Clinton : "I'm coming home" – Daughtry – young, hip from American Idol (which gets more voters then any candidate does) and reminds us all of a better home/time that we had during the Clinton years.
Another alternative is the original "Don't stop thinking about tomorrow" from Bill Clinton's campagin
Clinton: Jump, Jive and Wail
Obama: We Are The World
McCain: Don't You Forget About Me
song for John McCain, I did it my way, Frank Sinatra
song for Hillary, You needed me
song for Obama, in dreams,
"A New World Order" by Curits Mayfield
for Barack Obama's theme song
SHE WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY – I BELIEVE BY DONNA SOMMER FOR HILLARY. MCCAIN – SHOULD BE, MAMA DON'T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE COWBOYS, BY WILLIE NELSON AND FOR OBAMA THE SONG SHOULD BE – DON'T FALL IN LOVE WITH A DREAMER – I THINK THAT WAS BY THE EAGLES.
For Obama.....Simon and Garfunkle's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters"
War. Uh. Good God Y'all. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.
Say it again...
Jack, have you heard of this song.. "you are so spinning.....you are so spinning"
Obama should just use his own theme song. "Yes we can" also the song "Come with me" by Mary J.B would be good for him. He is always talking about peace, and its a very inspirational song.
All the candidates need to use the old fiftys tune, "Get a Job." And then do it.
For Hillary, "I Will Survive".
Clearly, after going through all she' s gone, both personally and politically, the girl's a survivor.
For all of them – "LOSER" by Beck
Obama – Come together by the beatles
Im a canadian but have been watching much of whats going on and am worried about the next world leader i feel that america needs change and Obama will give the biggest change why not use a beatles song bring america toegther and lets create peace throuhout the world. please
Hillary- Don't Fall in Love With a Dreamer
Signed, Sealed, Delivered is the song Barack has been using for his entire campaign. It is a theme song perhaps suggesting he will represent America. It has nothing to do with winning or losing a particular primary. You're suggestion that he would be unsuccessful in the white house because he played this song after a loss is reaching.
Thanks and I still love you,
I think Hillary should use "I Am Woman" I believe it was by Helen Readdy. It's good and powerful and to the point!!!
Obama: The theme from St. Elmo's Fire
Clinton: "Little Miss can't be Wrong" by the Spin Doctors
McCain: "Cult of Personality" by that black metal group from the late '80's (Living Colour?).
The perfect theme song for Ralph Nadar's campaign: "What kind of Fool am I?"
For Obama: Curtis Mayfield- People Get Ready A Change is Coming
For Clinton: Billy Ocean- When the Going Gets Tough the Tough Gets Going
"Take Your Time Do It Right" by the SOS band
theme song for Barack Obama
This is too easy, Jack. The first to come to mind was the best:
The WHO, 'We Won't Get Fooled Again'.
Let's hope we don't get fooled by either party.
Silver City, New Mexico
I think that a great song for Obama to use in his campaign is One Vision by Queen. Listen to it; it's perfect!
The song that most describes Clinton's campaign at the moment is "Help!" by the Beatles. She's feeling down, and she really does need somebody. Not just anybody... Would you please, please help her?
Ain't no stopping us now – by Mc Fadden & Whitehead
Need I say more.
The theme song for Hillary's campaign should be Jacques Brel's
"If you leave me now". Sort of plaintive just like her campaign.
"Can't Tell Me Nothin'" by Kanye West seems like the ideal song for Hillary's campaign because she always seems to be saying "Wait 'til I get my money right..."
OBAMA CAMPAIN SONG;
For Barack Obama
"The Promised Land" by Bruce Springsteen – let's face it: Obama's political message and Springsteen's lyrics are of the same American soul.
For John McCain: Alley Oop
For Obama: "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," by MacFadden and Whitehead
For Hillary: "I Am Woman Hear Me Roar/Cry/Scream/Beg," by Helen Reddy
For John McCain: "We Are The Champions," by Queen
John Lennon's IMAGINE for Barak Obama.
For Hillary Clinton All Hell's Breaking Loose by Kiss
For John McCain War Machine by Kiss.
For Barack Obama Changes by David Bowie
After next Tuesday, my wife and I are hoping we can sing "Thank God and Greyhound She's Gone".
For Obama: ONE NATION UNDER A GROOVE BY PARLIMENT/FUNKADELIC
for Clinton: YES WE CAN BY POINTER SISTERS
for Mc Cain: 96 DEGREES IN THE SHADE BY STEELE PULSE
Barack Obama should play the song made by Wil.I.Am about one of his speeches YES WE CAN because it inspires and uplift people.
Considering the economy right now, I would suggest that the campaign theme songs for all candidates be: 'Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?'
For Barack Obama:
Neil Diamond's WE'RE COMING TO AMERICA works for me!
John Mc Cain's theme should be "War Pigs" by Black Sabbath.
Hillary Clinton's should be "Same Old Song & Dance" by Aerosmith.
Barrack Obama's should be "Changes" by David Bowie.
Jack – The answer is simple, after 8 years of the Bush Administration, the perfect song for any of the candidates would be the Beatles "It's Getting Better All The Time," because like it states in the song, it can't get any worse!
"Fighter" – Christina Aguilera for Hillary Clinton's campaign.
I think it's only appropriate that John Mc Cain uses AC/DC's Highway to Hell. I think that's where his bus was headed before it went in the ditch.
For Mike Huckabee,
Don't Forget about Me, by Cathy Griffith
Sen. McCain's theme song shoukld be "Blowin' in the Wind"
Barack Obama – James Brown, "Try Me"
A truly great song for Barack's run for the office.
New York, NY
Obama: Imagine (you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one)
Clinton: Yakety-yak (don't talk back)
McCain: Love the one you're with (CSNY)
Helen Reddy's song: "I am Woman". Not all of the lyrics apply but many of them work for her..... "hear me roar" is the best one.
campaign song for Ralph Nader: "Born to Lose"
Well let's see. Barack Obama should have Walk A Mile In My Shoes, because that would bring him closer to the people he hopes to get. Hillary Clinton should have Hooked on a Feeling, and Mccain should be Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
As tight and intense as the Democratic race is currently, with the upcoming Tuesday being a crucial part of winning the Democratic nomination, there is no tune other than "Under Pressure" by David Bowie for Barack and Hilary to sweat their ideals to.
Hey Jack, a good them song for Hilary would be the, "Adams' Family"them song. A good them song for Obama would be, "Moving On Up" and a good them song for ol' John would be from the good old "Looney Tunes" that we all grew up watching.
Jack, I have the perfect song for John McCain. How about "Stuck In The MIddle With You"? You know...."clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with you..."
I'm not sure what any of the current candidates should choose as their campaign song. For the last seven years, however, I haven't been able to get "Road to Nowhere" by the Talking Heads out of my head.
I think you are insulting the voter's intelligence by making us judge the 3 potential presidential nominees based on how good each one of them will be in choosing their campaign song? Don't you have other issues to raise which are more relevant to the call of time?
mccain's song should be the theme to the grinch who stole christmas
obama .. walking on sunshine
hillary .. something from stevie nicks in her older days
Barack Obama theme song "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by McFadden & Whitehead.
I have no songs for the candidates, but I love the caffertyfile. So your song should be, We Are The Champions, by Queen! I Love You Jack!
For all candidates: Your mind is on vacation while your mouth is working overtime by Mose Allison
McCane; Bonanza (theme song)
Huckabee; The Party's Over Now
Obama; You Don't Have To Live Like A Refugee
Hillary; Mama Tried
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
by Daft Punk
It's Youthful, it's motivating, The Obama camp should consider this around college campuses
i think Obama, Clinton and Mccain should all use the same song, "Loser," by Beck.
Hillary: "Help" from the Beetles
Obama: "Can't touch this from M.C Hammer
theme song for obama should be "yes we can can" a 1973
pointer sister's hit.
I'm still waiting for the day that someone finally gets honest about it and goes with the Tears for Fears classic "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".
Jack – I've got a great song for the Obama campaign. 'Touch a Hand (Make a friend)' by the Staple Singers. Great lyrics and it fits his message of 'change'.
The Clinton campaign needs a theme song not to energize or motivate her supporters, but rather, one that invigorates Hillary herself...perhaps Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots were made for Walking,"?
From Oakland, CA:
For Barack Obama: "Jesus Christ Superstar"'
For Hillary Clinton: "She Works Hard for the Money" by Donna Summer
For John McCain: "Rock the Casbah"' by the Clash
Mike Huckabee: "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" by John Denver
"Come by Here Lord" This theme song could be used for any one of them.
South Ozone Park, New York
For Hillary: Stayin' Alive, by the Bee Gees.
For Barack: The Times They are a-Changin', by Bob Dylan
For Mike Huckabee: Son a of A Preacher Man, Dusty Springfield.
For John McCain: I Want You, the Beatles
Theme song for Barack Obama..."The long and winding road".
For Sen. Clinton...."Proud to be an American".
For Sen. McCain..."So long its's been good to know you".
Jack, the candidates should play Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire." With the mess George W. Bush started, all the candidates should be trying to distance themselves. Problem is, McCain and Clinton voted for the war. And does Obama really wanted to be affiliated with Chubby Checker, Psycho, or Belgians in the Congo?
Obama should use "Anything You Can Do" from Annie Get Your Gun. In fact, he and Hillary should go on tour together; then they could banter back and forth and it would be more entertaining than a 21st debate.
I think all the candidates should play "It Was Just My Imagination" by the Temptations because anyone who thinks that one these candidates is going to single handedly fix all the foul ups by George W. Bush is just imagining things.
Hillary Rodham Clinton – "AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH" (Diana Ross)
Mike Huckabee – "NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE" (Gloria Gaynor)
John McCain – "IF" (by Whitesnake)
"Old Man" – Neil Young
A good campaign song for ALL the politicians is....
"Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" by ACDC
John Lennon – Imagine – Barack Obama
John Lennon – Instant Karma – Hillary Clinton
John Lennon- Give Peace a Chance- John McCain
I turned to Chuck Berry for inspiration. How about "You Can't Catch Me" for Barack Obama, and for John McCain, "No Particular Place to Go"?
Think of Elvis and......
For John McCain: "All Shook Up"
Hillary Clinton: "Don't Cry Daddy"
Barack Obama : "If I Can Dream"
Dr. Ron Paul – Take Back America, by Willie Nelson
Barack Obama should definitely adopt "The Times They Are A-Changin" by Bob Dylan because he represents the end of the old establishment and the beginning of a new approach to politics.
for Hillary Clinton
Europe's "The Final Countdown"
Send in the clowns is the only song that fits. Especially if hillary or McCain wins. Not much better even if Obama win.
Obama should play "One Love" by Bob Marley
"... one love, one heart, lets get together and feel alright"
The song reflects Obamamania euphoria in his campaign
I suggest Peggy Lee's "Is That All There Is" for both Hillary and McCain. As a native upstate New Yorker, I know that Hillary won't come through on her promise to Ohio and Texas that she will bring in more jobs. That is why I now live in Colorado.
This is a no brainer.
Obama, Obama – sung to the music of Oh Donna, Oh Donna.
I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR IN NUMBERS TO BIG TO EGNOR....GO HILLARY
obama theme song should be:
WAITING FOR THE WORLD TO CHANGE sung by John Mayer
I think Barak Obama should use Pink Floyd's song "Money" as his campaign theme song. He done a great job garnering donations for his campaign...and he is preaching "change" isn't he?
Hopwell Junction NY
Barack obama... Aretha franklins respect
Hillary clinton...rolling stones can't get no satisfaction
Is huckabee still in it?
For Huckabee, "My Way"
You know Jack, a good song for Hillary Clinton is "Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mack. Even though her husband used it in 92 and 96
I would go with the following in no particular order:
McCain: Jethro Tull's song with the refrain "You're never too old to rock & roll if you're too young to die"
Huckabee: Onward Christian Soldiers
Clinton: It's My Party (And I'll Cry if I Want To}
Obama: Jimi Hendrix' Are You Experienced?
But then, that's just me....
i am from seattle ,wa
obama- song should be "Marvin Gaye- What's Going On "
Jack, How about "Good Night Irene"?
This should work for all three candidates.
jian from new jersey
either, yes we can, or i got a crush on obama, all my favorites!!
I think a good theme song would be "Beautiful Day" by U2.
1.) It's a positive and very optimistic song
2.) It's clean
3.) It's light and catchy
4.) It is sung by a popular and non-controversial band
5.) There isn't any room for misinterpretation in the song lyrics
The song should posses the same attributes as the candidate has (or at least as the candidate would like to make us think they have).
I think the Obama campaign should adopt Curtis Mayfield's classic "Move on Up" as their campaign theme as it is a perfect compliment to the Senator's inspiring movement for a brighter tomorrow.
John McCain- Fly me to the moon... he is soooo out of touch with the issues of the day
Barack Obama- I'm too sexy...........just look at him and listen to the rythm of his voice, seriously though proabably Magic by the cars. I never thought the American voters would swoon over a minority in my lifetime. I love it the country has a chance to be unified
Hillary Clinton...........It's five o'clock somewhere...look at her, the campaign has taken a toll, she's desperate and she needs a drink or "little willie" she just wants barack to go home because she thinks it's it's her "turn" to be president
John Mc Cain's song should be "Barbra Ann", he modified the song when asked what he would like to do about Iran.
The best possible song for this election is "Let The Day Begin" by a group called The Call. But there's only one candidate for whom this should be the theme for, the one who made us beileve again, and that's without a doubt Barack Obama!
Hillary's campaign song should be THE BEST BY TINA TURNER
HILLARY IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE ARE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!
What if we all play them a song? I'm thinking "Hit the Road Jack". I am so sick of the adds, the phone calls at all hours, the mailbox being filled with campaign mailers, and the bickering over non issues that I could scream.
Obama- All Star by Smashmouth
McCain- Gansters Paradise – Coolio
Hillary- Na Na Hey Hey by the Supremes
Jack, please sing this don't just read it or it won't work.
"Obama HayBamaBamaBama Obama Hay Bama Obama"
Sung to the tune of Hosanna from the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar.
McCain: "When I'm 64"
Clinton: "I Am Woman Hear Me Roar"
Obama: "A Change Is Gonna Come"
Hillary – I Am Woman – Helen Reddy or Help – The Beatles
Obama – The Theme From The Jeffersons – Movin' on up
McCain – Takin' Care Of Business – Bachman Turner Overdrive
Hilary Clinton, "A Time To say Goodbye" by Sara Brightman. Obama, "God Bless America". McCain, "Born In the U.S.A." by Bruce Springteen.
Obama...."IMAGINE" by John Lennon..Its everything
Barrack Obama stands for...If Lennon were alive today he'd be singing it for Obama and to Obama!
Obama – dont think twice its alright – bob dylan
bob should run for president
Hmm ... Maybe ONE MOMENT IN TIME, by whitney Houston. For Barac Obama Campaign Song... I think this song is a fabulous choice because its that moment in time, and in history that Obama, will be The United States next President...
If after Tuesday, Senator Obama is still ahead by triple digits in the pledged delegates department and if we make the leap of faith that Governor Huckabee is at least 600 delegates behind, here's my playlist:
Daydream Believer -The Monkees, for his eternal
optimism and evolving campaign
Who Are You? -The Who
He still hasn't officially suspended his campaign
In The Navy -Village People
See a Little Light -Bob Mould or
Ain't No Mountain High Enough -Marvin Gaye
Give it Up -KC and the Sunshine Band
Keep up the good work and many thanks,
Johannesburg, South Africa
Obama should definitely use the song created for him by will i. am., yes we can. It's a wonderful and influential song, plus I doubt he would get introuble for using that song.
Jack, "Time to say goodbye" by Andrea Bocelli fits the right theme for the Hillary Clinton's soon-to-be-ending campaign.
For Hillary, I would have to pick the Nancy Sinatra hit, "These Boots Are Made For Walking". Maybe if she added in a dance step she could win the youth vote!
The chorus of the Thompson Twins' "You Take Me Up" works for Obama's supporters ("You take me up to a higher ground ... You take me up so high now I never want to come back down").
The rest of the song seems geared more toward Clinton ("It just makes me weep when I try how I try" and "I'm moving in circles ... Don't get very far").
Barack Obama will do good with: – (I Hear the Earth Move under my Feet- Carol King)
Hillary is a (Hallaback Girl – by Gwen Steffani- (B-A-N-A-N-A's)
MacCain – (Michael Jackson- THRILLER) (somthin he ain't)
Huckelbee is: (Three Dogs night- ONE-– is the lonest number
Maybe the candidates should pick songs for each other. Clinton's song for Obama would be "Somewhere over the rainbow", Obama's song
for Clinton would be "Barracuda", McCain's song for both Clinton and Obama would be "Feelin' single, seein' double (and for Bill Clinton would be Here, there and everywhere), and their song for him would be
the theme song from M.A.S.H. And for Huckabee? I am a rock, I am an Island !
When I listened to Obama's speech on Feb 12th, the song that came into my mind was "Time Has Come Today" by the Chambers Brothers.
I think Hillary Clinton should play Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer. I believe it would set and example about the soul purpose of here campaign.
how about "sounds of silence" for mcain and clinton????
Obama- “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – Nirvana
Huckabee- “I Can Only Imagine”- MercyMe
Hillary- “Helter Skelter’” – The Beatles
Mccain- “The End” – Doors
Hillary ........." Obama Girl song" lol
Obama "Right now!" Van Halen
Huckabee " express yourself" james Brown
Mccain " Disco Disco Duck" Disney song
I think Hillary should have "Yellow Submarine" by The Beatles because it is a feel-good song and who hates The Beatles?
Barack Obama's theme song should definitely be Peter, Paul, & Mary's "The Times They Are a Changing," which they sang at the March on Washington in 1963.
Jack, although I have several song suggestions for Barack Obama, I was e-mailed a video from a friend, which has a song entitled "Change", which was written and performed by the Gospel singer John P. Kee. You ought to check it out; it is a good song, and has all of the slogans Obama uses such as "Time for Change", and ""Yes We Can". It may be better than trying to fit a song to a candidate (especially with copyright laws playing a part). –If you want me to e-mail the song to you, please give me an address to do so.
For Hillary Clinton her motivating theme song should be "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" by McFadden and Whitehead
I BELIEVE THAT THE SONG :THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND:
WOULD BE GREAT FOR BARACK OBAMA. HES THE TICKET FOR ME.
For Barack Obama, "Everything's Coming Up Roses."
For McCain and all other Republican candidates for public office, how about Perry Como's "It's Impossible."
Obama – "We are family"
One song fits all. "Elected" by Alice Cooper!
I think Barack Obama should use The All-American Rejects lyrics – The Future Has Arrived
I think it's an awesome song that promotes the Obama message!
Here's one that Hillery really needs desperately – "Wishing and Hoping" by Dusty Springfield
I Think the theme song for Hillary should be Sweet Child Of mine by Guns'n'Roses! Cause that song and band is AMERICAN!!!! I'm only thriteen and I Believe Hillary will keep me and all americans safe.
