Obama Attempts to Win Back America With Tiny Musical Moment

by Liz Colville

Thursday night at a fundraiser in Harlem, Obama was having a way better time than the Republican candidates, and at one point broke into song, honoring Reverend Al Green, who was at the event. Obama sang “Let’s Stay Together” (indeed) for about six seconds, in the middle looking down at the podium for a reflective pause the way he always does, even apparently while singing. It turns out this is not a one-time occurrence. Back in 2008, Obama sang six seconds of Aretha Franklin, and at a different event while he was Senator, he serenaded Dionne Warwick with six seconds of Dionne Warwick, and advised that if you wanted to charm a lady, you put on a Dionne Warwick record.

Here’s Obama singing the presciently selected Franklin number “Chain of Fools”:

And another choice cut, Warwick’s “Walk On By”:

Lest we forget musical politicians ARE A GREAT IDEA. Obama can’t really top this, but the guy can sing, and he looks a little better giving a brief musical speech than Huntsman does at the keys. Now all we need — to ruin music forever — is for Mitt Romney to show up on Jay Leno playing “The Entertainer” on a french horn. [Talking Points Memo]

Harlem?! Fucking elitist.

neiltheblaze January 20, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I bet he took to subway to get there too.

widestanceshakedown January 20, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Twas a real bitch getting that teleprompter through the turnstile, too, also as well.

jqheywood January 20, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Perhaps, I don't know, maybe the "A" train?

WunkRocker January 20, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Saxophone or GTFO.

LettucePrey January 20, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Newt will now be calling Barry the "food stamp, R&B singing President."

arihaya January 21, 2012 at 1:42 am

well Harlem is a very, very urban place

Dashboard_Jesus January 21, 2012 at 2:30 am

dude may not be as 'liberal' as me and I ain't happy 'bout everything he done but I DO love this guy, especially when he shows just how fucking authentic, and cool, he really is…sing it Barry! (and this recent photo says it all.. .http://dudelol.com/obama-fist-bumping-white-house-janitor/)

horsedreamer_1 January 21, 2012 at 6:26 pm

The Globetrotters? More like a Fifth Column.

slowhansolo January 20, 2012 at 1:15 pm

He's got another for the general: "Freddie's Dead."

nicnack74 January 20, 2012 at 2:08 pm

That's what I said…

SorosBot January 20, 2012 at 1:15 pm

It's certainly better than Ashcroft's Let the Eagle Soar (anyone else remember that?)

comrad_darkness January 20, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I didn't until you reminded me. Thanks for nothing.

gullywompr January 20, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Yep, I had finally forgotten it until just now. We owe you one, SorosBot.

freakishlywrong January 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Any reference to that shit must be presented thusly:

Horrible. I assume he wrote that tripe while he was in a coma and Andrew Card/Alberto Gonzalez were making him sign the torture memo. Only recourse was to torture our earbones later.

Toomush_Infer January 20, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Hey, I was just asking that in the last thread (except, due to dementia, I couldn't remember Ashcrofts' name)…it's like deja vu all over again…

Guppy January 20, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I used to, but then I found some gin.

Chillwillard January 20, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Or Sarah Palin's "Let the Spread Eagle Soar."

jqheywood January 20, 2012 at 3:02 pm

There's an image I didn't need…

CthuNHu January 20, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Still no match for Romney's "Who Let the Dogs Out."

HipHop0Potamus January 20, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Romney-Bot is programmed to sing?

horsedreamer_1 January 21, 2012 at 6:27 pm

It was more what a peevish og let out in response to being strapped to th roof.

It is something I will never forget.

No matter how hard I try.

Pat_Pending January 20, 2012 at 8:28 pm

…"from r-r-r-ROCKYCOAST… to golden shooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-rrr-rrr-rrre…" Man that guy had some pipes. That could only be improved with a little drain cleaner.

Chet Kincaid January 21, 2012 at 1:30 am

That's my favorite part too.

Gratuitous World January 20, 2012 at 1:15 pm

u.p.p.i.t.y.

SorosBot January 20, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Jinx!

BaldarTFlagass January 20, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I won't be impressed until he throws down a little Barry White.

elviouslyqueer January 20, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Great minds, Baldar.

LesBontemps January 20, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Better, Dr. Dre.

elviouslyqueer January 20, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Even better, 2Pac.

horsedreamer_1 January 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

A duet with actual lesbian (I didn't believe it, but I am coming around) Queen Latifah on an update of California Love in support of repealing Prop 8?

MozakiBlocks January 20, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Oh, I'm sure he already does…

elviouslyqueer January 20, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Oh fine, Barry. But if you really want to put a fork in the GOP, let's hear some Teddy Pendergrass or Barry White.

NorthStarSpanx January 20, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Speak for yourself elviouslyqeer, I got pregnant just listening to that, like, eight times today.

EatsBabyDingos January 20, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Was he practicing for his minstrel show? He does do the blackface thing pretty well.

Wait, wha?

Spurning Beer January 20, 2012 at 1:18 pm

If Barack put Al on the ticket, I would quit my jobs and volunteer full-time for the campaign. Mr. Green is a treasure and a genius.

Spurning Beer January 20, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Once you go Green, you never go back.

I went to his church in Memphis several years ago, it was an amazing experience, especially for a lapsed Catholic English person!

KenLayIsAlive January 20, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Sounds so awesome. Although will is still be church if I can't stop thinking of all the girls who've let me touch them MOSTLY because I had an Al Green record playing?

Negropolis January 21, 2012 at 12:54 am

A Catholic English person? Such a creature thing exists?

horsedreamer_1 January 21, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Andrew Sullivan Libel.

LesBontemps January 20, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Al Green for Secretary of Love; Bootsy Collins for Secretary of Funk. This is the kind of public policy I could really get behind.

But, who will be the Secretary of War? Because you just know that Parliament-Funkadelic will want to reclaim it's title as World's Funkiest Government.

HempDogbane January 20, 2012 at 1:19 pm

Etta James or GTFO.

Dashboard Buddha January 20, 2012 at 1:24 pm

sigh…so long Etta. Thanks for the hat.

Barry, don't quit your day job.

slowhansolo January 20, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Romney strikes me more as a "Classical Gas" kinda guy.

Dashboard Buddha January 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm

And of course, Newt is a Me and Mrs. Jones kinda guy.
(if played on out of tune banjos, that is)

slowhansolo January 20, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Still probably beats Santorum's CreationFest playlist.

Dashboard Buddha January 20, 2012 at 1:33 pm

I estimate that the number of Amy Grants songs one can listen to before slipping into a diabetic coma is picking up the CD.

elviouslyqueer January 20, 2012 at 1:39 pm

What? No love for Ron Paul? Well, then, allow me!

slowhansolo January 20, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Anyone else old enough to remember when Amy Grant was actual, non-path-of-least-resistance pop star? (Hint: She sucked then, too, also.)

Somewhere, Sara Benincasa is sliding helplessly out of a chair.

KenLayIsAlive January 20, 2012 at 2:08 pm

What is lubricating that slide, we'll leave to the wonkateer's collective imagination.

KenLayIsAlive January 20, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Also, can I have the chair?

Negropolis January 21, 2012 at 1:05 am

ROTFLMAO!

widestanceshakedown January 20, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Given the singular depravity of a wonkateer, no collective imagination is required.

Well, he did bust out "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" earlier in the day at Disney Land.

Now if we can get Santorum to do a G.G. Allin…

John Birf Society January 20, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Even GG Allin wouldn't handle Santorum, God rest his putrid soul.

I wonder if BO will point to that douchbaeg Joe What'shisname and ask him what he thought about CU now.

Callyson January 20, 2012 at 1:23 pm

After listening to those idiots and assholes at last night's debate, Obama's baritone is music to my ears whether he is literally singing or not…

dinkybossetti January 20, 2012 at 2:50 pm

The people of Philadelphia deny that they were anywhere near a debate in South Carolina last night and insist that you take back this slanderous accusation.

Callyson January 20, 2012 at 4:47 pm

I think I will use Mayor Nutter's "idiots and assholes" line for the rest of my life. Fits so many situations.

I think he oughtta get George Clinton up there on stage for a little Chocolate City.

Uh, what's happening, BO?
They still call it the White House
But that's a temporary condition, too.
Can you dig it, BO?

Dashboard_Jesus January 21, 2012 at 2:47 pm

But they'd never show-up for meetings.

johnnymeatworth January 20, 2012 at 1:33 pm

True, but his anti-riot stance would never be questioned again.

chicken_thief January 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm

For about $150 bucks or the purchase of 20 of his books, Cain would prolly go on tour with Obama and accompany him in duets. And maybe do some (more) tap dancing, too. Which would be fun, 'cause then we could watch Barry slap him in the back of the head every time he lapsed into his 9-9-9 bullshit.

neiltheblaze January 20, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Right, but does he play the sax?

Baconzgood January 20, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Tee-Hee

"Butt Sax"

sati_demise January 20, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Why does he always say "I wasnt going to do that"?

He cannot help himself, has no control over soul music at all.
He must be possessed.

amen freakish, I believe the problem is too many uptight white folk got their heads up their collective ass when they oughta be shakin it…if BO and MObama would take a few minutes to get their freak on stage at the Dem National Convention they'd hip-hop all over Willard's poor white Moron ass into 4 mo years in the Black House!

BaldarTFlagass January 20, 2012 at 1:28 pm

In response, Newt broke into an impromptu rendition of Sammy Davis' "Candy Man."

chicken_thief January 20, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Newt didn't really do justice to the vocals, but it was amazing how he could freeze one eye in place like that.

Can you imagine Mittens or Newt singing? Somehow I don't think it would be charming or tuneful at all.

widestanceshakedown January 20, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I'd rather not imagine it, but since you brought it up, Newt would sound like a goose getting barebacked by a broken bottle and Mittens like an old modem about to expire.

Texan_Bulldog January 20, 2012 at 1:36 pm

He was in Harlem, eh? Did he ask for some 'motherf***ing iced tea'?

freakishlywrong January 20, 2012 at 1:37 pm

Look closely, you can see his running mate, the teleprompter. He's the first president in history that has used one, you know. TOTUS.

PsycWench January 20, 2012 at 1:37 pm

And people think Obama doesn't know how the real world works.

flamingpdog January 20, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Barry can do all the singing he wants on the campaign trail as long as he promises not to get together with Uncle Joe Biden and do a duet of "Ebony and Ivory".

Sure, Mitt can play the French horn but his real talent lies in playing the harpsicord.

oh Obama, when will you impromptu breakdance for us? I suggest after beating Mittens in November. I know you'll somehow manage to awkwardly make it semi-cool.

Damn! Falsetto Barry makes this lesbo swoon. ♫

SayItWithWookies January 20, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Nothing like a little smidgen of soul — certainly better than Rick Santorum erupting into "Jesus Loves Me This I Know" or some other Sunday school tune befitting his mentality and worldview, or Newt singing "Mean Mr. Mustard" under the impression that it's a glowing tribute, or Mitt breaking into one of the Casio organ demo themes.

jqheywood January 20, 2012 at 3:16 pm

"Mitt breaking into one of the Casio organ demo themes."

Yes! At the mall, at the Jordan Kitts next to the Cinnabon….

Ducksworthy January 20, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Now close your eyes and imagine Mittens singing. What that? Oh right. He has people to do that for him. They're called the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

"crooning" Elton John? I just can't keep up with all these new euphemisms.

Why, is he going to arrange for the GOP nominee to meet with an 'unfortunate accident?'

My guess would be: more than 6 seconds and he has to pay royalties.

KenLayIsAlive January 20, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Thursday night at a fundraiser in Harlem… and at one point broke into song.

Maybe he thinks that's how black people act. They do that in the movies sometimes. You know, like in Porgy and Bess.

For irony, he could have sung a few lines of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On."

Handsome, athletic, smart, and he can sing like a bird and dance real cool. Holy crap, a talented cool dude who made it in a stiff white man's world.
