Tweet Beat: The Top Ten Best Republican Songs

 

This weekend the hashtag #RepublicanSongs was trending on Twitter. (For those of you unfamiliar with Twitter trending, it means that someone tweeted an idea—in this case the retitling of a popular song to reflect right-wing thinking, tagged with the hash tag #RepublicanSongs. So many people contributed their own ideas that the hashtag dominated Twitter for a day). Here are ten of the countless Republican Songs I spent my weekend—I mean, took a few minutes here and there out of my busy social calendar—coming up with. As I consider myself not only a Twitter artist but a Twitter curator, below my own titles I present a sampler of great Republican Songs tweeted by the greater Twitter community.

#RepublicanSongs from me:

  1. My Country ’Tis of Me (My Country ’Tis of Thee)

  2. The Times Should Not B-Changin(The Times They Are A-Changin’)

  3. Fetus, I Need Your Lovin’ (Baby, I Need Your Lovin’ )

  4. 99 Red Buffoons (99 Red Balloons)

  5. We Will, We Will Frack You (We Will, We Will Rock You)

  6. Take My Vote Away (Take My Breath Away)

  7. I Feel So Close to You Right Now, I’m in Your Uterus (I Feel So Close to You Right Now, It’s Like a Force Field)

  8. You Really Got a Probe in Me ( You Really Got a Hold on Me )
