GLG Fresh Mp3 Friday: Dear Mr. President

Forty-four Americans have taken the presidential oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." Before you complain about your job, try doing all of that in a days worth.

Dear Mr. Presidents: we've loved you, hated you, admired you, cried with you, fought with you, changed with you and made history with you. In appreciation to our present and past presidents, we've asked Michael J. Epstein, Shawn Fogel and John Shipe to tell us who their favorite defender of the Constitution is, along with one of their personal songs they think best describes them.



Michael Epstein of The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library
Favorite President: Dwight D. Eisenhower
Song: "Amylee"
For Fans of: Magnetic Fields, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

"In addition to fighting for racial equality, Dwight D. Eisenhower played extensive catch-up in the space race against The Soviet Union in the 50s. If not for Eisenhower's commitment to U.S. space exploration, I may have never been able to write a song with so much inter-stellar imagery."

Shawn Fogel of Golden Bloom
Favorite President: Dwight D. Eisenhower
Song: "Doomsday"
Genre: Indie/rock/pop
For Fans of: Ben Kweller, Wilco (Summerteeth Era)
For more of Shawn, click here.

"For my presidential pick I'd like to select Dwight D. Eisenhower, not so much for what he did during his presidency but for his famous Farewell Address to the American people just before leaving office. In this incredibly profound, if not prophetic speech, Eisenhower warned us against the dangers of the military-industrial complex becoming more and more integrated into our government and our lives. Fifty years later (almost exactly) we find ourselves trapped in a state of constant and potentially endless wars, at the mercy of the very thing President Eisenhower spoke about. In honor of Eisenhower's foresight, I present a Golden Bloom fan-favorite as well as the main export of the military-industrial complex: Doomsday Devices!"

John Shipe
Favorite President: Barack H. Obama
Song: "Lion"
Genre: Acoustic/Indie/Rock
For fans of: Josh Ritter, Jonathan Rice and Elvis Costello
For more of John, click here.

"I think my opening tune 'Lion' may be paralleled, with the opening lyric:
'No matter what I do, good or bad, everyone's got something to say.'"
