America – Bernie Sanders political ad with lyrics from Simon and Garfunkel song



It’s hard to remember a political ad receiving the kind of praise being showered on Bernie Sanders’ unconventional new TV spot, America, which takes the name of the featured Simon and Garfunkel song.

The lyrics used in this ad are the first and last stanzas:
Let us be lovers,
We’ll marry our fortunes together.
I’ve got some real estate
Here in my bag.
…..
Counting the cars
On the New Jersey Turnpike
The’ve all come
To look for America,
All come to look for America,
All come to look for America.

– Simon And Garfunkel
