In a totally unprecedented and unannounced event, Hillary Clinton along with husband Bill spoofed the much-anticipated but now much-criticized Sopranos finale. The senator from New York used the tongue-in-cheek approach to make public her campaign’s official theme song. According to her campaign officials, over a million people voted in her official website and in the end the song that stood the mightiest was Celine Dion’s You and I.
Curiously, Celine Dion is Canadian and the song was once used by Canadian Airlines as a theme song for its own advertising campaign. Here’s a snippet of the lyrics:
You and I
Were meant to fly
Higher than the clouds
We’ll sail across the sky
So come with me
And you will feel
That we’re soaring
That we’re floating up so high
‘Cause you and I were meant to fly
I don’t know about you, but the song sure approximates a) an airline ad or b) a song for druggies more accurately than a song for a bid to get to the White House. Traditionally, upbeat rock songs that inspire followers were used as campaign theme songs. But they, this is the first time that a woman (and former first lady) has a solid chance of winning that seat in the Oval Office, so there may be a lot of changes in the offing, right?
In current surveys, Hillary Clinton leads other Democrats Senator Barack Obama and former Senator John Edwards for the party nomination. Will Celine Dion’s song help her become the US’ first woman chief executive?
