Help me! I can’t stop blogging about campaign songs!
There is still a week and a half to go, but I think we can call this one early. This is the best song about Barack Obama. I have no idea what they’re saying (other than “O-Ba-Ma is beautiful world!”) because it’s in Japanese, and that alone makes it superior to every other Obama song I’ve heard.
Don’t miss the “Y.M.C.A.”-style Obama dance near the end.
I wish they would do a version in our tongue. Judging by the title, the Engrish would provide a great source of amusement.
Update: A visitor was kind enough to post a translation of the lyrics. Now I really wish they had done an English version.
Double Update: We seem to be getting a lot of hits on this post, so I should point visitors to this other post, where our listeners and readers are voting on the best Obama song. At this moment, it’s between “Obama is Beautiful World” and “Obama Be Thy Name.” Make your voice heard!
