Singer/songwriter Randy Newman returns to the smart-ass attitude that made him famouswith a new song, “I’m Dreaming.”

It’s a brutal observation on the racial subtext of the current presidential race, and Randy’s lampooning those people who can’t get past the fact that the current U.S. president just happens to be black. You know who you are.

Beyond that, I’m not sure if there is another point he is trying to make but you are welcome to dig in and figure it out for yourself. At the very least, it will be good practice if you plan to vote this November.

You can download this song for free at the Nonesuch Records site

  1. Thanks for this post, Jules! I agree…they know who they are!! lol

  2. I didn’t realize this was you! I feel so much better because I just went off like a rocket, saying I’d be voting black this election just like I did last election when I felt proud to be an American living in a country that was no longer bigoted… It was quite a rant, covering uppity notions of a woman’s sovereignty over her own body, equality blah-blah-blah.

    Randy Newman is funny.
