Howard needed a theme for his folk era. I took the chord progression from the original rap song and arranged this "folk" version for acoustic guitar. Big shout outs to John Neiswinger, Kj, and Rob for helping me get this going and providing feedback as I worked through way too many arrangements of this thing. And stay tuned for much more nonsense on this front soon...

Intergalactic Howard Fineman, folk era

He's the intergalactic editor of the Huffington Post
Arianna is boss - but he's Political Pope
On anything governmental he's so dope
If you really wanna see him you need a telescope

And I when I say telescope I mean Hubble
Presidents - he's interviewed more than a couple
Like a policy bias he'll burst your bubble
You step to him man, and you'll really be in trouble

On big time shows he's been a panelist
Honored by the Society of Professional Journalists
But much more important than all of this
He's the father of celebrity intern Nick

His progeny knows civics much better than you son
He even knows who's gonna win the next election
Ask him for knowledge - he'll drop a metric ton
He's Intergalactic Folk Era Howard Fineman

Parody of my own parody... based originally on Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys

Another wow! It's the Tom Joad version. Well, now I'm mixing up Fineman and Clarke.

Thanks everyone! As I was copying down the lyrics to see what I might have to change to fit, and thinking through possible acoustic guitar arrangements - John N emailed me as well to say I should do this. So, yes - many great minds (and also mine) willed this thing to exist. ;) And great idea Jerry - I have always wanted to do a style medley jingle.

As soon as Tony said to Howard "I gotta take a twenty - you had a folk era?" I thought "Jason needs to do it folk-style!" This proves that great minds think alike - and ours, too! Just terrific, Jason.

The speed at which you came up with those fantastic, "way too many arrangements" blew me away. This is so great!

I laughed so hard at the title of this alone. I was thinking a 3-4 genre medley spanning Howard's high school career would be hilarious & that you'd be the only one who could pull it off. You have the folk area down, this is great!
