Band Just Can’t Get Enough of Hillary
Corrigan Brothers work their music on Democratic front-runner
Political jingle masters the Corrigan Brothers are going all in for Hillary Clinton with “It’s Time for Hillary,” a campaign song set to the music of Depeche Mode’s “I Just Can’t Get Enough .”
“Let’s all get behind her/ be a part of the dream/ Hillary ’16/ Hillary ’16,” a sampling of the song goes. Of course, there’s some Donald Trump in there, too.
“It’s time to stump/ old Donald Trump/ the White House waits/ to welcome Hillary.”
This isn’t the first foray into the 2016 political campaign for Donnacha, Ger and Brian Corrigan. Last year, they busted one out for Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, a fellow troubadour, with “He’s Gonna Be President, Martin O’Malley.”
Well, not this year, he won’t.
But they really made their mark with the current occupant of the White House. Their song “There’s No One as Irish as Barack Obama,” is right up there with indelible political tunes like “Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too.”
“You don’t believe me/ I hear you say/ But Barack’s as Irish/ as was JFK.”
