Caribbean Obama Songs

Coco Tea sings "Barack Obama" & Mighty Sparrow sings "Barack the Magnificent"

Calypso and reggae songs inspired by Obama are popping up across the Caribbean. These are some of the most popular. Sparrow sings, “The respect of the world we now lack/If you want it back, vote Barack," adding "on the Senate Vets Affairs committee he is a giant.” Cocoa Tea sings “It is not Hillary Clinton. ... It is not John McCain. ... It is not Chuck Norris, and I know it is not John Wayne. ... It is the new trend setter, Barack Obama!” The Caribbean community may be a player in the swing state Florida, and despite Hillary Clinton's good showing in Puerto Rico, she was able to ride on name familiarity, which is increasing day by day for Obama.
