Guess who wants to serenade you this Valentine’s Day? Mr. President! Our boy Baracksdubs is at it again, and this time around, he wants you to pick a song for Obama to sing on the most romantic (sometimes most depressing) day of the year. The last song y’all chose was an instant classic. Remember when Obama sang "Call Me Maybe" -- since you guys picked that song, it's received over 35 million views on YouTube and even Barry saw it! So the pressure's on to pick another awesome jam. You ready? Voting ends on February 8!
+ Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble”
For some, Valentine’s Day isn’t such a happy occasion. If you’re planning on spending Valentine’s Day alone, crying into your ice cream, and stuffing your face with cheap pharmacy chocolates, Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” may be the song for you. BTW, Obama totes whispered the lyrics of this song into Mitt Romney’s ear after crushing him in the election.
+ Justin Bieber “As Long As You Love Me”
Question: Is the line, “We’re under pressure -- seven billion people in the world trying to fit in” an excerpt from Obama’s inauguration speech or a Justin Bieber lyric? If you guessed Biebz, you’re right, but we’d love to see Obama put a political twist on this hit, and maybe even consult with Justin's songwriters before he makes his next big speech. And will VP Biden fill in for Big Sean's verses or perhaps new Secretary Of State (and former presidential candidate) John Kerry? We can see either dude rapping, "Ask me what's my best side, I stand back and point at you."
+ Beyonce “Single Ladies”
Single ladies love this song, but don’t expect the First Lady to be singin’ it any time soon! Barack and Michelle recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. Though Obama might be singing Beyoncé's words to Republicans: "Just cried my tears, for three good years, ya can't be mad at me."
+ Taylor Swift “We Are Never Getting Back Together”
If you’re happy to be alone this Valentine’s Day, this is so the song for you! And much like you are “never ever, ever getting back together” with your ex, Obama is never, ever ever getting back together with cigarettes. That’s right! The prez is an ex-smoker who wants to make sure you never pick up the gross habit. "Tobacco remains the leading cause of preventable early deaths in this country," Obama once said. "We also know that the best way to prevent the health problems that come with smoking is to keep young people from starting in the first place." Heartbreak and cigarettes aside, this would be a pretty good tune for Barry to sing on February 14 for....Hilary Clinton. JKJKJK.
+ Katy Perry “Teenage Dream”
Maybe you’re in a perfect relationship with someone who makes you feel like you’re in a teenage dream. Speaking of teenage dreams, Obama wants to make gaining US citizenship easier for the teenage children of illegal immigrants. He believes that all kids deserve to live the American dream regardless of their parents’ choices. Do you agree or disagree? Either way, be sure to vote for your fave song so Obama can serenade you this Valentine’s Day!
