New Country Song Spoofs Manhattan Traffic Jams Anticipated For Republican National Convention
"You Can't Get There From Here"
Harwich Port, MA - Aug 25, 2004 -- KelMatt Music is releasing a new song in the Country category that spoofs the traffic congestion expected during the Republican National Convention being held in New York, Aug. 30 to Sept. 2.
Recorded by Baby & The Boomers
Called "You Can't Get There From Here," [LISTEN] the song has been recorded by a new band, "Baby & The Boomers," featuring guitarist Bruce Maclean and singer/songwriter Maureen Condon - whose songs have been performed nationwide by a variety of pop and classical singers.
Boston area radio and TV stations, including FOX25TV, and Boston's WHDH-TV, Channel 7, have already aired an earlier version of this song that spoofed the traffic jams anticipated for the Democratic National Convention (DNC).
Maureen Condon was inspired to write the DNC version of "You Can't Get There From Here," when she learned that the company she works for, Intranets.com, in Woburn, MA, was offering its service for free to help commuters hold meetings, share documents, and stay in touch - even if they couldn't get to the office during the DNC.
Now, Intranets.com is making a similar offer to New York commuters who may be hampered by street closings around Penn Station necessitated by the RNC.
The tongue-in-cheek lyric begins:
I was driving to Penn Station, heading West on 33rd,
When abruptly, I recalled the dire warnings I had heard,
There's a mighty big convention and the detour signs were clear:
Oh, you can't get there from here!
You can hear "You Can't Get There From Here" online at http://www.babyandtheboomers.com or at a special RNC site hosted by Intranets.com, where Ms. Condon is employed. (To learn more about the special offer from Intranets.com, simply visit http://www.intranets.com/RNCTraffic.)
