We R One! My Special Inauguration Day Post!

Vance at http://tapeworthy.blogspot.com:

So for this historic inauguration day, I thought I'd repost "We R One", because as sugartarded as the song may be, it's actually quite apt and I get verklempt just listening to it. The fact that it's sung by the whitest siblings ever from the British Isles isn't helping my case, but just listen to the lyrics (posted below), and shed a tear (once you stop laughing):


Same Difference - "We R One"

I’ve followed my dreams as long as I remember.
No matter the pain, no matter the rain-fall.
hoo-ooo-ooh

The road has been so long. So uncertain.
Looking back at what we’ve done,
Chasing devils on the run,
It’s a kind of emotion, second to none.
Reaching for the sun.

This is love! This is life!
This is good! This is great!
This is all that we’ve believed in!

All this time, all the tears,
All the prayers, all these years,
We’ve waited on this feeling…

Together! Together! We’re coming undone.
Together! Together! Baby, We R One!

Ooo-oh-oooh

Life can be so hard, when you feel lonely. yeh!
Hiding the ache, you don’t want to break-down.
No, no. No, noo-oh-oooh.

You can change it all, if you believe it.
Yeh, yeh-eyeh.

Looking back at what we’ve done,
We’re reaching for the sun.

This is love! This is life!
This is good! This is great!
This is all that we’ve believed in!

All this time, all the tears,
All the prayers, all these years,
We’ve waited on this feeling…

Together! Together! We’re coming undone.
Together! Together! It’s only begun.
Together! Together! Baby, We R 1!

Hold me now and never let me go.
Hold me now and let the whole world know.
We R One

Got to let this feeling grow, Got to let this
feeling grow.

Looking back at what we’ve done,
Chasing devils on the run,
It’s a kind of emotion, second to none,
It’s a kind of emotion,
Reaching for the sun.
ohhh - oooh - yeh yeh yeh. ooohooohh woohooo.

This is love! This is life!
This is good! This is great!
This is all that we’ve believed in!

All this time, all the tears,
All the prayers, all these years,
We’ve waited on this feeling…

Together! Together! We’re coming undone.
Together! Together! We’ve only begun.
Together! Together! Baby, We R 1!

ohhh - oooh - Baby, We R One.

Yay Obama, America and the World!

Same Difference is the perfect group for the Obama Era: eternally optimistic, cheesy and full of life. We are one indeed!
