WACKY WEDNESDAY: On the Campaign Trail with Brian Dewan


OK, the Republican National Convention last week and the Democratic National Convention this week got me scouring YouTube for weird old campaign songs. But late Tuesday night, my brother Jack turned me on this guy's version of a real 1960 campaign song for Richard Nixon.

Brian Dewan is an artist, musician and furniture maker -- and apparently a fan of strange campaign songs -- from Catskill, N.Y.

Don't ask me when these songs were recorded. They were uploaded on YouTube in 2006, bt other than that I can't find a clue.

Here's his version of that Nixon tune.



This stirring ode to Jimmy Carter actually was a song-poem. I posted the original version by Gene Marshall  HERE last year.



And this one was ripped from the pages of Mad Magazine circa 1972.



Hopefully Dewan will be covering this song, which has been floating around the Internet the last few days.
