Song of the Day - Day 494

Today's song is...

Tippecanoe and Tyler Too

Being a bit of a US History nerd, I love the fact that this is an actual campaign song. Tippecanoe and Tyler too is one of those catch phrases from history that stuck with me since high school (even though my history interest was more 20th century). And I really enjoy the music TMBG set it to, particularly the way the guitar twangs out at the end. It sounds modern and yet suitably old at the same time. It's a shame that the current presidential candidates don't have original songs written for their campaigns anymore. Now they just get in disputes over copyright infringement for using existing songs without paying royalties. My how the world has changed.
