"THE BATTLE OF FLORIDA (2000)" was parodist Loose Bruce Kerr's real-time telling of Bush v Gore during that election year, where it all came down to recounts in Florida, including "chads." It is to the tune of "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton.
The song was featured on NPR's "All Things Considered" on election coverage.
Loose Bruce Kerr took 20 years off his legal career to write, record, and perform music across the country and the Caribbean. He's resumed his day career and works at Oracle in Silicon Valley. Before Oracle, Bruce was Assistant General Counsel at Sun Microsystems. Bruce records his original songs and parodies, multi-tracking 1 vocal and 1 instrument at a time in his garage in Morgan Hill, CA. He is originally from Waukesha, Wisconsin, home of Les Paul who invented multi-track recording.
Besides this podcast of Bruce's originals and parodies, both videos & audio mp3's (all for free), you can search on youtube.com for many others, including records he recorded with his college band in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the 5 Bucks (became the Byzantine Empire). Email Bruce at: BKerrLaw@aol.com
