Barack Obama uses U2's "Beautiful Day".
John McCain has used John Mellencamp's "Our Country" and "Pink Houses".
Mellencamp is a Democrat. He complained.
McCain's people finally picked "Johnny B Goode"by Chuck Berry.
When asked why he chose it, he quipped: "It might be because it is the only one [the artist] hasn't complained about us using."
Berry, 81, may not have complained ..... but he has made it clear he would prefer Barack Obama in the White House.
Jackson Browne is suing REPUBLICANS / McCain because of the use of his song “Running on Empty” in a recent TV commercial mocking Obama for suggesting that the country conserve gas through proper tire inflation.”
Guess what: He is a Democrat too. You would think at the very least, a candidate would as before using an artist's song.
(He has the best hair. I can't believe this is almost 30 years old.)
