Barack Obama, matinee idol?
This song, written by Gerry Goffin and Carol King, inspired by the Beach Boys sound, made famous by British pop band Herman’s Hermits, and here sung by Canadian schoolchildren over a decade later- truly captures my mood today (minus all the gooey parts about meeting a girl and falling in love). This track is pure exuberance. I mean, these kids are completely freaking out.
I am one step further away from living in a Central Park hooverville, at least I hope so. The ball’s in your court, President Obama!
