Whether or not you like Bernie Sanders, this is pretty funny, and well, completely ridiculous:
A musician with Fox Cities roots is feeling the Bern all right.
So much so that Appleton native Mel Flannery and her husband, Danny Sher, who live together in New York, put their talents into “Hold Me Closer, Bernie Sanders,” a song that’s a Sanders-centric take on the Elton John classic “Tiny Dancer.”
Flannery, Sher and a few friends — who for this venture have called themselves Punned It (get it?) — wrote and recorded the song on Sunday, “when everybody else was watching the Super Bowl,” Flannery said. They timed its release for after the New Hampshire primary.
“We wanted to give those feeling the Bern something to celebrate with,” Flannery said.
Here’s a sampling of the lyrics:
You’re the closer, Bernie Sanders
Fix the wage gap, schools and highways
End the school-to-prison pipeline
And bring the troops back home today

And in case you missed it, a piece by yours truly: a lower-case explosion of feelings regarding liberal backlash against criticizing hillary clinton.
