Good morning, Americans! It's time again to exercise your civic duties. Time to argue with your brethren about Mittens this and Hussein that. Time to demand recounts and wait eight hours in line to cast your ballot.
we didn't, we wouldn't be stealing our neighbor's yard signs, or
ranting till the sun came up on Facebook, placing road blocks in poor neighborhoods, or waiting in line eight hours...
A lot is riding on this election, so it's easy to feel nervous or stressed or totally overwhelmed by the outcome. But fear not, for music will tame that angst-y, savage, political beast within. March boldly into the voting booth and do your
part. We'll do this rest with this high-velocity,
balls-to-the-wall, Election Day playlist that's sure to get the red and white
blood cells pumping through your blue veins.
8. Que pasa, Mufasa?
We hope you ask yourselves this very question this very morning as you chug your café con leches, and anxiously eyeball the front page of the paper for any indication of a winner while waiting in line to pay for said café con leche.
Good morning, little voters!
7. Anxiety Music
Long lines and pundits make voting seem like a rat race. The Benny Hill theme has a way of capturing this feeling of anxiety while simultaneously turning any situation into comedic gold.
6. Duelin' Fates
Doesn't matter who you're voting for, you probably feel like you're on the right side, battling the forces of evil. Good for you. You should feel pretty epic right about now, hence this "Duel of the Fates" tune. Just please don't cut anyone in half; save that for the movies.
5. What's Going On?
Let a comedic reinterp of '90s top 40 radio carry you through this hectic day. Who's judging you for knowing every word of 4 Non Blondes only hit? Not us.
4. Rewrite History
Life is like a hurricane here in Florida! With flip-flopping politicians and a tanking economy, it can be a duck-blur. Just grab on to some ducktails and keep your chin up.
3. Be an Opportunist
Chances are you might be waiting for a fair amount of time with a lot of other people. When that happens, well, the mind tends to wander. Whether similar ideologies turn you on, or you're into that really kinky/rough/argumentative type sex, never forget: Anytime is the right time to score some digits.
2. Eye on the Prize
It's the thrill of the fight that compels you. Never take your eye off the prize, even when the guy in front of you lets out a toot and you have no choice but to stand in it.
1. Let's Do It
Yes, let's do it! Let's exercise our rights as American citizens and participate in electing our nation's leader. Hey, even if unemployment hits the ceiling, Waka knows of one sure-fire way to keep paper in your pockets.
