Richie’s Tribute To Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver [VIDEO]
I know this one is a little "deep" and inside humor. Hopefully you've been following the news on the resignation of New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver over recent allegations. Big surprise that, for better or worse, I would try to make it all rhyme.
This will be one very, very long blog if I have to sum up all of the details of this case. I will refer you to the New York Daily News article, a New York Post article, and Wikipedia. Suffice it to say that it is another sad day in NY politics, but in the spirit of Mark Russell and other political satirists, I wanted to give this one the old college try.
This is a parody of one of my favorite Beatle tunes of all time - "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". It was never a radio hit, but I did a test market on Facebook asking if people remembered it. I got answers like "duhhhhhh" and "Abbey Road, Cut 3, Side 1". So, yes, it did ring a bell.
Here's my parody. I will preface this again by saying that these are allegations only and nothing's been proven. I'm just rhyming what I read in the articles above!
