Pro-Obama songs from around the world

http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/29155

Very cool, lots of Reggae, Latin, Africa, French, the Irish "There's no one more Irish than Barak O'bama" comes on in two versions around 8:20 pm

It's still streaming live, or you can hear it archived shortly.

Shay Black: There is No One as Irish as Barack O'Bama
This California pub sing-a-long actually has some controversy attached: It's a version of a song by the Irish group Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys (which we will also play). The Irish group complained when Shay posted his version on YouTube without asking them for permission first.
