At an Obama campaign event last night in Parma, Ohio, Bruce Springsteen debuted a song he wrote specifically for the president’s reelection shot. The problem is, the song really, really sucks, featuring Springsteen rhyming the president’s name with anything and everything he can think of: mama, pajama, Osama, drama, Obama.
He then sings about a date with an Ohio woman that resulted in bad sex, all while the crowd punctuates each line with tepid, confused shouts of the Obama campaign slogan “Forward.” We all know that Springsteen cares deeply about the president’s reelection, but can’t he write something better for the man that increased his song sales by 409 percent? Watch the goofy performance below. [AV Club]
