Fantastic song choices, of course! I've had The The "This is The Day" going around in my head all day. (It was the title of my old livejournal -- i love that song.)

I am gonna put on Judy and rock out!!!

YAY FOR US!!!!!!!

Truly moving to watch that sea of people. Just so powerful to see that people believe, care, and want to be involved. Hard to not feel something.

As for your songs…kudos. May I offer “Funky President” by James Brown or “Freedom” by Paul McCartney.

Cheers as always…

Karen: YAY FOR US!!

Todd: Agreed! (Do you have download links for those songs? If you do, I'll put them up.)

We're cheering along with you, all over the world.

Fabulous vox pop interviews with US citizens living in London on BBC News last night, one of whom quipped 'Now I can stop pretending I'm Canadian!' x

We can all be happy and proud together! :)

Dane, I suppose you'll have found Funky President by now...

Anyway, that pic is the exact moment when I had cold shivers all over my body, a lump in my throat and tears in my yes. For once, CNN did well in how they executed the countdown to the last polls closing, captioning Obama's victory and cutting to Chicago.

I still wonder if I'm dreaming. If I am, I hope that when I wake up, CNN announces that Al Gore has just narrowly beaten Texas Governor George W Bush. I could do with being eight years younger again.

I could too ... eight years ago, before Katrina and 9/11 and any number of other things, was a much better time.


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
