Herman Cain Pizza Song: GOP Candidate Sings John Lennon’s ‘Imagine,’ Dedicated To Pizza (VIDEO)

To John Lennon’s “Imagine”… Herman Cain shows that he should really be trying out for the X Factor, instead of trying to run for political office…

The beginning of the Cain Minstrel Show

Imagine there's no pizza
I couldn't if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It's frightening and sad
You're lucky you have pizza
To feed for kids for you
Only frosting or cookies
And no dishes you must do
Imagine eating pizza
Each and every day

Sing Off – Acappella Guilty Pleasure

Don’t know if anyone else has caught this one, but over the last 2 weeks there has been yet another talent show trying to mine the Gold first produced by American Idol.  This one, loosely focuses on Acappella style singing, but fundamentally fails due to trying to mix styles and sizes of groups competing against each other.

Despite the format and structural issues – one group stands head and shoulders above the others in professionalism, skill, and ability – Nota.

These guys are definitely in the Ray, Goodman and Brown/Persuasions (Ain’t got no Band)/Boyz 2 Men class – Check them out:

In the event you’ve never heard of the Persuasions – here’s a clip of them performing more traditional material in Washington DC’s Cellar Door Club in 1974 –

They were originally signed by Frank Zappa – and performed over 40 years on stage. My fav?

An old Sam Cooke song –
