Anti-climaxes are all the rage these days :
Ohhh…I get it. Hillary Clinton was just killed by Johnny Sack. Seems like an odd way to end the campaign, but whatever.
As far as the choice of campaign song, picking “You and I” by Celine Dion is weak. Putting aside the fact that Celine Dion totally sucks (which is hard to do, I admit), does it strike anyone as strange that the campaign would choose a song by a French Canadian singer? It may be a petty complaint, but no more so than John Edwards’ haircuts.
On top of that, the lyrics of “You and I” are ridiculous :
High above the mountains, far across the sea
I can hear your voice calling out to me
Brighter than the sun and darker than the night
I can see your love shining like a light
And on and on this earth spins like a carousel
If I could travel across the world
The secrets I would tell
What the hell does that have to do with anything? Compare those lyrics to her husband’s much better campaign song, “Don’t Stop” :
If you wake up and dont want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
Youll see things in a different way.
Dont stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Dont stop, it’ll soon be here,
Itll be, better than before,
Yesterdays gone, yesterdays gone.
Yeah, it’s cheesy baby boomer bait, but it does a good job summing up the theme of the campaign. That is, unless the Clinton ’08 campaign theme is that “this earth spins like a carousel”.
