Song for Hilary

March 6, 2008

Hilary ClintonI’ve been getting quite excited by the US presidential race, even if I’m not so excited by any of the candidates. This Hilary comeback is quite something – worthy of a song dedication, I think.

And what better song than one called “Ohio”. Sure, it’s about an abduction, but then Neil Young’s song was about a college massacre. Why doesn’t anyone write cheery songs about the midwest? Except for Sufjan Stevens, that is. Mind you, I went to Ohio back in December, and I wasn’t inspired to write jaunty melodies.

Also, this song is a hell of a lot better than that awful “Hilary for you and me” song.
