What does Super Tuesday sound like when it goes electro pop? Like this!

Super Tuesday

Elections for party nominations
To represent our nation
Who you gonna vote for?
You know it's Super Tuesday!
Super Tuesday!
Coming soon to a state near you

In Alabama and Idaho
Georgia and Delaware
Utah and Tennessee
New York, New Mexico too
And Oklahoma, North Dakota
West Virginia, Minnesota

Obama has got a certain "je ne sais quoi"
But I've seen him on a few too many TV talk shows
Is Bill running vicariously through Hillary?
And I just found out about Mike Gravel

Elections for party nominations
To represent our nation
Who you gonna vote for?
You know it's Super Tuesday!
Super Tuesday!
Coming soon to a state near you

In Arizona and Illinois,
Kansas, Montana, California
Connecticut, Alaska and Arkansas too
and Colorado, New jersey, Missouri and Massachusetts

Giuliani couldn't stand the heat and so he dropped out
Mike Huckabee has got that righteous Christian act down pat
Mitt Romney seems to change positions like the wind
John McCain is really old so this is his last chance

Globalization is changing the world
And no one knows quite what to do about it
The dollar's not what it once was
And so everything costs more

There's a seething war in Iraq
Is it time to bring our troops home?
Privatize social security,
Or equal taxes for all?

Elections for party nominations
To represent our nation
Who you gonna vote for?
You know it's Super Tuesday!
Super duper Tuesday!
Coming soon to a state near you

Super Tuesday!
Super duper Tuesday!
Coming soon to a state near you.



Hearts of Palm UK are Erica Elektra (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Ambi-D (glockenspiel, keyboard, percussion). The band fuses the intensity of electro, the sweetness of lo-fi indie pop, the dance-ability of Euro club hits and the honest rawness of folk music. Working mostly from original material, Erica Elektra creates layered sequences and textures that are joined by smooth vocals. Her work has drawn comparisons to Stars, Metric, Cat Power, Camera Obscura, The Postal Service and even Cyndi Lauper!
