Internet rumors have it that Barrack Obama is currently picking his inauguration song. Here is the skinny:
"The Jeffersons television show theme song “Moving on Up” was the initial choice; the uplifting message combined with uptempo gospel music, seemed somehow to fit the nation’s first African-American president. However, after he was reminded that the protagonist of the show frequently ridiculed the inter-racial daughter of Tom and Helen, it was dropped.
“The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground was the next choice. Viewed initially as lighthearted with a message of unity which called for Americans of all races and backgrounds to unite and dance, aids reminded him that the reference to “a fat girl” in the song might offend overweight Americans who have been some of his most stalwart supporters.
“Who let the dogs out” by the Baha men was another thought, as it symbolized the power of a Democrat (black man) crushing his (white) Republican but rejected by aids who feared that it would sound “too ghetto” for middle-Americans.
As of now supposedly the Obama camp is leaning towards “Get jiggy with it” by Will Smith an uplifting and triumphant number that won’t alienate white Americans too much (except for those hard core racists who voted for McCain anyway) while keeping his street cred with the hommies (Dog will keep it rill yo!)
