My new blog buddy, Fran I Am, had a great post earlier today about a great song that she really felt was Obama-ish. Then as I was driving to my Chamber Board interview, I heard another song that felt Obama-ish. Finally, I got home and turned on CNN and Jeannie Moos had a piece about music at the Democratic Convention.
All of that inspired me to pull together Democratic Convention music, plus Fran I Am's song and the song I loved this morning.
Big Country - thanks Fran I Am! You're right! This song IS Obama-ish!
Philip Sayce performing with Melissa Etheridge at the Democratic Convention - God Bless America, The Times They Are A-Changin', Give Peace A Chance & Born In the USA
Better Days by Goo Goo Dolls - This is the song I heard today that speaks to what I believe Obama speaks to: hope, faith, our best days being in front of us.

Stevie Wonder performing "Fear Can't Put Dreams to Sleep" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" at the Convention - I remember meeting him at President Clinton's 1997 Innaguration. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
