The Ballad of John Edwards (The songs about him!)
Oh..."Johnny" Boy....The Pipes, The Pipes are calling....
Now that John Edwards has admitted to his affair with "filmmaker" Rielle Hunter, we decided to take a better look at the "Webisodes" she made about him for his failed presidential campaign.
Each one uses a theme song at its end by Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band. The song is called "True Reflections." It would seem that Edwards and his staff never listened to the lyrics. It's as damning a choice as Hunter could have selected.
The first verse says it all:
When you look into a mirror
Do you like what's looking at you?
Now that you've seen your true reflections
What on earth are you gonna do?
That doesn't sound like a song endorsing the person it's describing. It's an indictment. It's unclear when Hunter put this music on the film.
The song goes on to say :
thought by now you'd be the president
But after all that was yesterday
But you've had time to go out in the world now
But you chose to run away
Well, people ask you what you're doing now
You don't even know what to say
