Randy Newman Releases Satirical Election Song

Randy Newman is no stranger to writing scathing political satire and he’s done it again going into the final fifty days of the 2012 election with his new track I’m Dreaming.

I’m dreaming of a white President
Just like the ones we’ve always had
A real live white man
Who knows the score
How to handle money or start a war
Wouldn’t even have to tell me what we were fighting for
He’d be the right man

Newman recently told Slate “[F]or me it’s a reaction to the Republican Party, which seems to have drifted farther to the right than a major party has drifted in my lifetime in any direction. It seems to have become almost a radical party. The hate and . . . I don’t think it’ll last. That kind of thing doesn’t seem to last.”

Randy has made the track available for free at Soundcloud but is also encouraging people to donate to the United Negro College Fund.

Here is the video for the song:
