Obama music

I'd been thinking about Frank Sinatra campaigning for JFK and wondering where were the catchy campaign tunes of today? I'm not talking about just using a Celine Dion or Fleetwood Mac song as a "theme" but original tunes? The Will.i.am. tune is interesting but unsingable.

And then came my friend Liz, ethnomusicologist and all around cool person, with this link to songs about Barack Obama.

I think my favorite is the Miguel Orozco just because the chorus is catchy:
Como Se Dice…Como Se llama?
OBAMA! OBAMA!
I don't even know what it means, but it sounds good and it rhymes.

"How do you say... what's your name?"
OBAMA! OBAMA!

How come I work in the arts but you hang with the ethnomusicologists? You still have the coolest friendbase.
