I'm rather a fan of list songs. I've had Yakko's World and Tom Lehrer's The Elements memorized for years, though I'm still struggling with Wakko's America (can't keep the verses in order) and Weird Al's Hardware Store.
So in the spirit of the Animaniacs numbers in particular, I took the geographic list song down one more level. I've toyed with this idea for years, but I finally put some serious work into it recently, and it came together pretty quickly. A big part of my motivation was thinking that I might be able to use this as something of a viral campaigning tool; certainly, no other candidate has attempted it. They rarely even employ jingles anymore.
So what is it? All the counties of Georgia, set to music. Specifically, the music of "Oh, Susannah." And in approximate geographical order, going from north to south.
Unfortunately, a decent sounding copy will require music, as I've found that an a cappella version (at least as sung by me) sounds pretty hollow. But while I'm working on a more polished version, there's no reason not to share the rough draft.
So last night I recorded the full version of me singing the song. You can listen to it here (and follow along with the map linked above; it starts in the northwest).
Thoughts? Am I crazy to think that this might spur any interest outside the geek contingent?
