Old School Friday: Fight The Power...

I am down and out with a serious cold, sitting here trying to count how many times I used the delete button in the last minute.  

Alright y'all, I'm trying something new.

I have decided to turn my Friday posts into a grand ol' fete.  I have joined some illustrious bloggers in Old School Friday.  Friday is a new day for me, where a host of us go diggin' in the crates according to a given theme.  Today's theme is Fight Song For Your Candidate.  Now as you all know, I am Canadian.  However, if I had the opportunity, I would surely vote in the upcoming U.S. elections.  Nonetheless, just being here and being able to witness a change - a shift if you will - a historic moment (yes I am forecasting) in the making, gives me goosebumps.

So with that said, obviously my candidate is Mr Barack Obama himself (so handsome!).

My song pick may raise a few eyebrows, but I wanted to keep it light and fun this week.  Especially since Mc what's his name is trying everything to force feed you his antipathetic views to change.  People loosing their houses because of the economy, parents loosing their children to this disturbing war being fought, an upcoming recession and everyone feeling helpless regarding the state of affairs in the country - it really can't get any worse.  However, it is almost like the person needed was sent to guide everyone down that yellow brick road.  He is hell bent on falling off the beaten path and bringing y'all back to where you once were and need to be.  It's time to let go of the heavy load and regain that confidence - like Dorothy, everyone needs to find their way back home again to what they know.  Take his hand and follow, he's your Wizard if you will.  It looks like it is going to be an interesting ride to say the least.

Such easy words to live by:

Have a great weekend, I'm going back to bed.

Great choice! This song was one of may favorites and The Wiz is a classic.

Malcolm said...

Superb choice... I doubt if anyone else will select "Ease On Down the Road" for OSF this week. I wonder if the TV special that features this clip ("Diana") is available (or ever will be) on DVD.

Vivrant Thang said...

Welcome to OSF girlie! I look forward to your choices in the upcoming weeks.

This is a fun pick. I surely hope he's easing on down that road. Great to see Michael on this OSF.

Have a good one sis!

Tha Connoisseur said...

Shae: The Wiz sure is a classic. It was an eye opener for me during my obsession with Michael. ;)

Malcolm: Thank you! Lawd man, I was wrecking my brain trying to figure out where this clip was from. It was so familiar to me, but I just couldn't pin point what the show was. So thanks again for that.

Ms Thang: Thank you for my red carpet lady.
I hope he's easin' on down too, I really hope he is. :)

What a great choice! I kinda wish Canadians could vote here now! I loved the musical - now I'll always think of this election year when I hear it, lol.

I got a little twisted with my OSF and instead of posting a Fight song I posted FRIGHT songs for our candidates, all in fun, mind you!

Tha Connoisseur said...

Regina: Thank you for the warm welcome!! I am praying hard for y'all too. Trust me on that!

Popartdiva: Thanks!! LOL if only there was an "honorary American from Canada" ballot...lol. I would be there with bells on!!
