VIRAL VIDEO: The Hillary Shimmy Song

300K views overnight. Boing Boing recaps:

From our prolific internet songwriter friend Jonathan “Song a Day Man” Mann, a wonderfully catchy little ditty for this shitshow of an election season. The Hillary Shimmy Song. Jonathan Mann writes a song every single day, and he has been doing that for the last 7+ years.

You might recall that Jonathan Mann wrote a song when beloved JMG commenter Beeblemeyer passed away in 2013.

  • Christian Flanagan

    Thanks, I needed a smile and a laugh.

  • Very fun. I liked Seth Meyers comment, “That’s the dance your aunt does at a wedding reception when she hears, “Single Ladies”… I know THAT one!”

  • Rex

    I give it an 8, has a nice beat and you can shimmy to it.

  • Wayne

    Love it, but still, Randy Rainbow has got this

    • Gustav2

      Sent that to the hubby yesterday, he watched it with earbuds in, he laughed so hard his conservative Christian boss came out of the office and wanted to see it…whoopsies!

      He was sharing the Will and Grace one on an iPad with a coworker and thankfully she dismissively said, “That’s all old stuff, ” and walked on.

        Wanna go halfsies with me on my next fundraising project? It’s a kissing booth with Randy Rainbow and Trae Crowder…

    • Todd Allis

      Tears in my eyes from laughing. Thanks!
      Also, if you can’t get enough of the sniffing:

      • metrored

        All that sniffing reminded me of the whisper song. I didn’t like it.

    • Rolf

      Randy knocked it out of the park with that one, the Shimmy one is just mildly cute.

  • TrollopeReader

    OT: Train runs into station at Hoboken …structural damage and injuries are expected.

  • Todd

    Hope after debate two, there is a Shimmy 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    • GayOldLady

      Debate 2 is going to be a townhall. I don’t expect the same result, because the audience will get to go into the weeds. Still I think she will do much better than Trump because all he has is bullshit, no real answers.

      • Jerry

        She excels in that format, he doesn’t. The only “town hall” format Trump has done so far, he had his own campaign person asking all the questions–none really from the audience. Clinton actually does much better in the town hall-type events than in a debate.

    • The_Wretched

      i hope she pulls out a, ahem, ‘prosthetic’ and slaps him with it.

    • EdmondWherever

      They can save that for 2020.

  • Cuberly

    Loved that moment in the debate.

    Hillz was winding up, getting ready for the amateur.

    I still get his song “Binders Full of Women” stuck in my head. This is great.

  • Silver_Witch

    Don’t get it sorry. I shall leave it at that.

        Glad to see your ^’s, even better to read a comment from you. Hope all’s going well.

        • David Walker

          Yes. I am still lurking, which is ahelluvalot easier to do on Facebook than it is here. However, back to Lurkerland.

          • GayOldLady

            I hope you’re feeling better David!!

  • gaymex1

    Thanks for remembering the wonderful Beeblemeyer.

    • Robincho

      Thank you for calling him wonderful. Forgotten, he dies twice…

      • gaymex1

        He was a gentle person. I miss him.

        • Robincho

          Estoy contigo…

    • GayOldLady

      I sang every word as if the last time I sang it was yesterday. Thanks for reminding me.

      • TuuxKabin

        I was reminding friends on our way home from lunch yesterday about this song. We we’re singing it as we walked along the street, but couldn’t remember who did it. Of course, Lil’ Anthony and The Imperials! It’s been an ear worm ever since someone here posted a cat, la Hilaria and Shaquille O’Neal doing a shimmy in split screen.

  • This made me smile….thank you.

  • GayOldLady
    • TuuxKabin

      Who has more fun than us, with her?

      • GayOldLady

        Nobody! We really enjoy her, don’t we. That “Woo” and Shimmy shot at Trump made my week.

        • TuuxKabin

          Yes we do! And this was a good antidote to waking up this morning with a ‘fried egg’ on my forehead. Something that just can’t be helped sometimes. But a post, comments and shared videos like this make it worth the effort to put that one foot in front of the other. Now off to our el Taco Taco for a photo op.

          • perversatile

            Your morning prayers were answered, nobody noticed.

          • TuuxKabin

            Oh God! Thanks for that. I noticed, to and from the farmers’ this morning, nobody noticed. Not even the vendors we deal with twice a week.

            Every now and then I need a hit of that song. And her.

          • perversatile

            ”Fried Egg Lady” is my default setting for all those tedious sit in a circle and tell something about yourself- team synergy- ‘let’s grow some ideas’ work place bridge building- bullshit meetings. While I don’t sing in the end, I do know it by heart, and have become persona non grata for several not-for-profit arts organizations.

          • TuuxKabin

            Well, you can come join us for PIE n’ coffee anytime you’d like, sit and ‘default’ all you want. John Prine has always been a lyrical craftsman to me and I appreciate that song so much. Bette’s natural empathy shines when she does that song, if only she’d do it more often. I love it when she gets reflective and all sensitive. I worked about 30 years with the aged so my priorities are a lil’ slanted.

          • perversatile

            I agree, a brilliant collaboration, I would not change a comma.

  • Henry Auvil

    The shimmy was great. Didn’t top Obama’s 2008 shoulder brush moment, but still…

  • Megrim Twist

    Whoo! OK! Loved it.

  • bob

    The Colbert bit on her shimmy was pretty funny. Here’s more reasons to do it , lol.

  • DonnaLee

    Thank you so much for posting this Joe! I love this Shimmy!
