I’m sure many of you were watching with happy eyes yesterday as Barack Obama took the Oath of Office and George Bush left Washington… finally. Well, there’s no better way to celebrate Obama’s inauguration than with a music. So, with that in mind, I’ve assembled a list of great tunes to help you welcome Obama as our 44th President.

1. “Imagine” – John Lennon
2. “Yes We Can” –
3. “What A Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong
4. “Respect” – Aretha Franklin
5. “A Brand New America” – Keb’ Mo’
6. “This Land Is Your Land” – Woody Guthrie
7. “Our Country” – John Mellencamp
8. “America The Beautiful” – Ray Charles
9. “Back In The USA” – Chuck Berry
10. “The Star-Spangled Banner” – Jimi Hendrix

My band, Secret Archives of the Vatican, uploaded a song called Inauguration to our MySpace page yesterday:

Obama’s speech was great – let’s hope he lives up to it.

That’s a great song- you’ve got some good beats. We’re all looking forward to four years without Bush.
