Spotlight on CVF

This song goes out to all the propositions out there

Excerpt of column by Patt Morrison in the LA Times, February 22, 2000

Political sing-alongs were as outdated as "Happy Days are Here Again," but now the California Voter Foundation has on its Web site an animated tune, "The Proposition Song," romping through every measure on the March 7 ballot, like:

"Prop Twelve is a bond act, it helps parks around the state,
" Then Prop Thirteen--not that Thirteen; that was nineteen seventy-eight."
"It's the Proposition Song! Let's all be singing along! Cuz the ballot is too darn long!"

CVF founder Kim Alexander is the tunesmith and lyricist; the ditty will never get her into ASCAP, but it can be found at, tra la tra la.
