Friday Night Videos – Election Special Featuring Todd Snider, Ry Cooder, and Randy Newman

Let’s get things going with one of my favorite political songs of the year off of Todd Snider’s latest album, Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables. “In the Beginning” tells the story of how religion got mixed up in politics.

If you are looking for some great political songs, start with Ry Cooder’s 2011 album, Pull Up Some Dust and Sit Down, and then move on to this year’s Election Special. This is a blues tune titled “Cold Cold Feeling” sung from the point of view of President Obama.

Randy Newman dropped this free mp3 download and YouTube video on Tuesday. It’s called “I’m Dreaming of a White President” and it goes out to all the simple-minded, xenophobic, racist, Obama haters out there.

A longer list of political songs is coming soon…
