After seeing a disturbing story on 60 Minutes last night, I couldn't do it. We need something completely different from what I had in mind. Hence, a Music Monday.
Let me bring you back to 1930, and a Broadway show (well, a movie about a Broadway show on the road) by the name of Chasing Rainbows. A song from that play was selected by Franklin Roosevelt for his 1932 campaign. Mired in the Depression, our country needed to know that Happy Days Will Be Here Again.
Here is the song, as sung in 1930.
And, in the 1960's, by Mitch Miller, from Rochester, New York. I could almost do a battle of the bands! (I won't.)
Interested in campaign songs? Read more here. Even George Washington had one. With different lyrics, we still sing it today.
And, of course, you will vote tomorrow if you haven't voted yet, right?
