Song of the Week: “Impeach the President” by The Honey Drippers

by Douglas Cowie on 31 March 2017

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Impeach the President” by The Honey Drippers:

Last week around our house we were listening to De La Soul, and started thinking about what a couple of their samples might be. Eventually we looked it up, and it turns out one of the samples we were wondering about was “Impeach the President” by The Honey Drippers. They’re singing about Nixon, of course: “Behind the walls of the White House / There’s a lot of things that we don’t know about. / Behind the walls of the White House / There’s a lot of things that we should know about.”

Works for 2017, too, yes.
