President’s day, it’s not just for mattress sales! Here I will talk about a few “presidential” themed songs. First up is Blue Mountain’s rousing ode to 39th president, Jimmy Carter
Next we have Hank Williams Jr’s song Mr. Lincoln. Where he surmises that the only thing that can save our country is Abraham Lincoln himself. This was in 1984. Seems Hank has moved on and nothing can save us now
Next is Tom T. Halls semi-absurd song about how a monkey can become president. This is one of those songs that liberals would have loved to trot out during the George W. Bush presidency but conservatives will have to tread very very lightly if they go around this song right now. Very disappointed this didn’t become the plot of the Planet of The Apes remake
and finally a song to wrap up how I feel about Presidents day, most Presidents, and particularly most federal level politicians. While originally written about Ronald Reagan, the chorus of “He’s the president, and I don’t care” will likely always ring true. Sing it Blaze.
