On election day, stay strong, stay confident, and keep the positive vibes going with TBoH’s Obama Election Day 2008 Mix! Our playlist features uplifting songs that reflect the spirit of Senator Obama’s historic campaign.
A Tribe Called Quest opens the call to action (“Yes You Can!”), while tracks by Digable Planets, Eric B. & Rakim, and Jay-Z describe Obama’s level-headed coolness and intellect. “Magic”, “Omid (Hope)”, “Come Alive”, “Say”, “No More Drama” and “Love’s in Need” remind us of the unity and courage of the Campaign for Change.
Koko Taylor sings in honor of Michelle and “Cloud 9″ offers a empowering message to Obama’s daughters. John Legend reminds us who this election is all about. And as we say “Bye Bye Bye” to the last eight years, remember that “The Choice is Yours” on Nov. 4. No matter what, in the words of Curtis Mayfield, “We’re a Winner.” Tell us what songs you think should be added to our playlist! And get out there and VOTE!
