President Barack Obama and Paul McCartney sang “Hey Jude” Wednesday night with [lastfm]Kevin Jonas[/lastfm], [lastfm]Jack White[/lastfm], [lastfm]Faith Hill[/lastfm], [lastfm]Dave Grohl[/lastfm], [lastfm]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm] and a bunch of other people at the White House (but definitely not you). The famed [lastfm]Beatle[/lastfm] received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
The award for second most popular song went to “Walk the Dinosaur” by [lastfm]Was (Not Was)[/lastfm].
The sing-a-long simultaneously borders on inspirational and embarrassing in a “parents trying to be cool” kind of way, with the likes of cut-up Jerry Seinfeld shoulder to shoulder with other wealthy looking types. We get it Obama, you’re cooler than most presidents. Now get back to fixing the country after the next song break, if you please.
…oh McCartney’s totally putting the moves on Michelle Obama by singing a song to her. The President better watch out!
