Political Ad Music: John Edwards in Iowa

I'm not sure if political ads count as "commercial music," but hey, this blog averages a post every six months so surely no one will complain. I just learned, a bit behind in the news, that John Edwards has pledged to cut Congressional health insurance as President if they don't pass a universal health care coverage bill in the first six months of his administration.

On the first day of Edwards' administration, he will submit legislation that ends health care coverage for the president, all members of Congress, and all senior political appointees in the legislative and executive branches of government on July 20th, 2009 -- unless Congress has enacted universal health care reform.
Even better, his Iowa campaign ad features The Final Countdown, which I have to admit that I didn't know who sang it until writing this entry. Here's a hint.
