Picking Obama’s Theme Song
OK. This one might only ring bells for anybody who worked in a record store in the early ’90s.
When I heard Obama’s “righteous wind” comment, my first thought wasn’t Mao, but a certain song that would work well for the One. And no, it’s not the one that Shannen Coffin suggests, but “Break Like the Wind” from Spinal Tap’s little known reunion album. Here’s an apropos slice from the lyrics:
We made a promise in the night
Swearing to Heaven
Is this a promise we keep?
Or will we break like the wind?
