Campaign Songs

Is it just me, wouldn’t Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire" be a great song for the Trump campaign? Everybody knows the chorus and sings along to the two lines they know, which is basically just a denial of wrongdoing. And the rest of the lyrics are real words, but they’re some kind of schizophrenic mishmash of words that don’t really mean anything but appeal to nostalgic idea of something that probably didn’t really exist in the first place.

Or maybe both should just use Lou Bega’s “Mambo No. 5”. They're both courting female voters and on the Trump side, you get the not-so-subtle subtext that makes it all the more amusing.
