A couple more must-see videos from the talent section of last night's Candidates Gone Wild event:
Amanda Fritz channels Ozzy Osbourne, with the help of her husband, Steve
Charles Lewis takes on Bob Marley (check out the swaying lighters and cell phones)
In case you had trouble making out Fritz's lyrics in the first video, she has posted them on her blog:
I'm Amanda Fritz
I'm the woman candidate
I will sing these notes
Cos I really want your votes
I will watch the bills
Make sure you don't pay for thrills
We all need homes too
Jobs and schools and microbrews
Doesn't that sound good?
I will work hard for all!
A Registered Nurse
Taking that 3 a.m. call
(awesome guitar solo by my sweet husband of nearly 26 years, Steve Fritz)
When the ballot's here
Mark my bubble, have no fear
(I plead shamelessly)*
Voter-owned, please vote for me!
Now I've wrecked this song
When you hear it from now on
You will think of me
Chasing votes through May 20
* Note: this line was not actually sung at CGW. I had a brain-freeze, despite having sung it approximately 150 times while driving to and from events the past two weeks. Thank you to everyone who applauded when I picked up on the next line. I greatly appreciated your encouragement
My apologies to everyone who previously enjoyed Ozzie's classic. It will probably never be the same, for those present at the Roseland last night.
