I’d be lying if I said I was particularly excited about any of the presidential candidates this time around, but I will say one thing: Barack Obama has done what I’d otherwise consider to be unthinkable: He’s given the world a campaign song that doesn’t make me want to hit someone.

The Black Eyed Peas’ (who apparently had a moment where he remembered that said band used to actually be, you know, a damn fine group with a social consciousness) takes the smart tack by simply putting Obama’s iconic speech to a melody, and the result is much better than I’d expected.
