Barack Obama has chosen Joss Stone to record the theme song for his campaign.
I can’t get with this choice, y’all. I mean, as far as wack ass appropriation goes these days, Joss Stone is pretty harmless.
She’s serviceable. Pleasant.
But clearly, not the real thing.
I don’t know what I expected. Something a bit more soulful (and by that I do mean the real thing). Something with more weight. Something that might actually intimate how serious and earth-shattering Obama’s candidacy is.
Joss is…just a shade too trendy, too vanilla, too boring.
Obama has more flavor than this, people. I know he does.
But then, I guess he can’t ask Luda.
I hereby register my dissent and put forth my own name:
“Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby!”
Too much, huh?
Shoulda known wit the afro, I guess.
