Capitol Steps is an amazing group of singers specializing in hilarious parodies of songs old and new aimed at skewering the eccentricities of politicians from left to right. President Bill Clinton is lampooned for his idiotic trysts with White House intern Monica Lewinsky in "Livin' Libido Loco," a brilliant send up of Ricky Martin's huge Latin hit "Livin' la Vida Loca" that includes the exchange "I won't stand for sex! Standing is not required!" Former President George Bush and his son George sing a duet in "Son of a Bush," using the late Harry Chapin's "Cats in the Cradle." Al Gore is subjected to "Put Ten Grand in the Hand" and "Won't You Go Home, Bill Bradley." Senate hopeful and First Lady Hillary Clinton tries to learn to use a New York accent in "I Can't Say Yo," while NYC mayor Rudy Guilliani complains about the controversial Brooklyn Museum of Art exhibit in "Dung at Art." There are many funny tracks on this CD, all performed as usual in front of live audiences. These parodies ought to give some historical perspective on the turn of the century to future generations. Highly recommended! ~ Ken Dryden
