All make fun of a well-known religious song

  1. How did Kumbayah become a mocking metaphor?

    What do a recent Republican political ad, bubble gum commercial and British newspaper spoof of a soccer rivalry have in common?

    All make fun of a well-known religious song.
    The GOP ad is typical: An impersonator of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright sings "Kumbaya" with terrorists. Why is "Kumbaya" the designated silly-song to represent phony or ineffectual friendliness?

    I still like it, and many of the people on that list who sang a version of it.
    Sweet Honey and the Rock, I would choose them to listen to tonite.

    Wow, I did not know another person in the US knows and likes Sweet Honey and the Rock's version. I have it on a tape I made for long road trips. My DD and friends would sing along at the top of their off-key voices for hours. Love it.
