Hillary's Song: The Final Round

Hillary Clinton's campaign has narrowed its potential campaign song selections to five, and has added the five most-popular write-in suggestions as well.

"Suddenly I See," by singer KT Tunstall leads the pack, followed by Shania Twain's "Rock This Country," U2's "Beautiful Day," The Temptations' "Get Ready," and Smash Mouth's "I'm a Believer."

The five write-in selections are "Are You Gonna Go My Way," by Lenny Kravitz, "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now," by McFadden & Whitehead, "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic," by The Police, "You and I" by Celine Dion, and "The Best," by Tina Turner.

It'd be interesting to learn who exactly is voting for the song: Women? Men? Younger folks or older voters? This listing suggests it skews younger, and skews female. And one has to wonder: Will Hillary tolerate hearing the official campaign song for the next 500+ days?

By the way, make sure to listen to today's Post Politics Podcast. I spoke with PrezVid.com's Jeff Jarvis about Hillary's campaign song strategy. You can hear today's podcast here. Don't forget to download and subscribe to it on iTunes.

You can view the list, hear clips of the songs, and vote for your favorite on Sen. Clinton's campaign Web site.

Just heard which song won. I trust the 'sphere is already well aware that Celine Dion is a Canadian (not a crime) and that the song has been used to promote Air Canada for many years. It may even have been written for that purpose - not sure.
