What Should Hillary Clinton's Campaign Song Be? Submit Now!

It's been almost two months since Hillary Clinton entered the 2016 presidential race. So far, I'm loving how Hillary and her team are running the campaign. We've seen her visit states like Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina--we even got to see the Scooby Van! There are over 500 days until Election Day 2016, which means we're still in the early days of the race, so why not have some fun?

Some political campaigns have campaign songs. Probably the most famous of them all is Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)" for Bill Clinton's presidential run.

Why don't we try and find a song for Hillary? I gave clues on Twitter last week teasing this project. So here's what's going to happen: right now, you can send in songs that you think would be great choices for her campaign. You can submit as many as you want; just make sure to include both the song title and the artist who sang it.

You can send in your submissions using the form below. And feel free to share this blog post on all of your social media pages so that as many Hillary supporters as possible can participate. (Use the hashtag #HillaryCampaignSong.)

This preliminary submission period will last for two weeks (until June 15 at 10am). Once the submission period is closed, I will gather all the songs into a list (along with audio clips so you can listen to them all), and over the course of several weeks this summer, we'll all vote to narrow down the list until only one remains--the song that we believe should be Hillary's 2016 campaign song.

Keep in mind that I am not affiliated with Hillary Clinton or Hillary for America, so these surveys/polls are not being used by the campaign to find an official song; this is just for us Hillary supporters to show our support and have some fun along the way.

So start sending in your song submissions now using the form below! Remember: you can send as many as you want.

(I reserve the right to disqualify any song submissions that are obviously meant to be demeaning/sexist/etc. towards Hillary.)

  1. Here are 5 best options: 1. "She's the One," Bruce Springsteen; 2. "Born to Run," Bruce Springsteen; 3. "Simply the Best," Tina Turner; 4. "Respect," Aretha Franklin; 5. "American Girl," Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

  2. I can't remember the campaign song that Hillary and Bill selected in 2007, but I remember the Sopranos final episode parody that they recreated in the commercial for it. Regardless, the television commercial for the campaign's song selection was much more memorable than the song itself!
