Posted by AzBlueMeanie:Rock legend Bruce Springsteen performed at an event for Obama's campaign in Parma, Ohio, where he debuted a new song he wrote for the president. CNN Blog: Springsteen's new ditty for Obama:
Before playing the new tune, Springsteen joked that President Obama had called him up and asked for help writing a campaign theme song.
"I said you called the right guy," Springsteen added.
The singer said he wanted to include the campaign's slogan, "Forward," in the song, but lamented at word's lyrical challenge.
"It's better than backward, a little better than sideward," he said. "You don't want sideward on no bumper stickers."
Saying it was his "duty as a man," however, Springsteen said he finished the song but asked that the audience shout "Forward" after every line.
