Not sure of the deadline for this one but....

Presidents Day Super Fun Happy Megamix

1. Lump by The Presidents of the United States of America - Can apply to any president you don't like.

2. Dead Presidents main theme by Danny Elfman - A great departure in soundtrack sound for Danny Elfman, using some of his Oingo Boingo background to good use.

3. Eric B For President by Eric B. and Rakim - From the salad days of hip hop music. 

4. Funky President by James Brown - The funkiest song about presidents ever.

5.  California Uber Alles by Dead Kennedys - President Schwarzenegger, anyone?

6.  Russians by Sting.  A little cold war hysteria.

7.  If I Was President by Wyclef Jean - Oddly beautiful if a bit nonsensical.  Still, full of emotion.

8.  We Didn't Start The Fire by Billy Joel - Not one of my favorites but a good song with presidential
references.

9. Impeach The President by The Honeydrippers - End the mix on a high note.  This is one of my favorite songs ever.  If you listen to hip hop, you'll recognize this as one of the most sampled songs in rap.  And it's just great on its own.

-----------

As a note, I only posted songs that I actually listen to and are already on my Zune.  I oughta make this a Zune playlist proper!
