|6.||yes we can|
Barack Obama's new catch phrase which has somehow been made into a song, of course by the Black Eyed Peas (featuring numerous other celebrities), cause they're SO politically conscious. The song is meant to be inspiring, yes people working together, we'll change the world, etcetera, etcetera, except it really leaves me wondering whether william or whatever his fucking name is (I know there are some fucking periods somewhere in it) has any ear for music, because the song sounds like crap, and the Obama voiceover kills any possibility of a person actually enjoying the experience of listening to it, because (and I'm not naming any names) certain types of peas just can't make music.
In spanish yes we can translates as si se puede, but the song still sucks orangutan tits.
