Well as my grandmother used to say “It’s all over, but the shouting”. President Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term and the airwaves can once again return to not having a constant stream of political ads.
But… that doesn’t mean I couldn’t find a few songs that highlight politics and the election process here and in other countries!
So do you prefer red states? Or do you prefer blue states? If I remember my grade school art lessons correctly I guess it means we now live in the purple states!
