Musical Countdown To Obama's Inauguration, 15 Days
Back in 2004 I guest-blogged at Sasha Castel's now-defunct blog an incomplete list of alternate state theme songs devised by myself. For the District of Columbia I assigned an entire musical, 28 songs. Of course, I have the original list on my home computer. I'll be embedding a different selection each day leasing up to O-Day.
I'll start with the "Montagues and Capulets" march, from Sergei Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet (performing orchestra unknown).
The portion beginning at 01:35 may sound familiar to some - it was featured in the Lexus "swinging orbs" commercial (cited in this list).
Update: I've created a special "Obama Countdown" category for this series.
