Tales 2012 Election Special Classical Weekend

On the weekends on the Tales, we deviate from our usual political theme to the beauty of classical music. On this weekend, while still taking a break from politics, we recognize the important presidential election taking place this Tuesday, November 6 by this Tales election special post.

This election will decide who will be the next president of the United States. In honor of the next president we play the universally known "Hail to the Chief", the official  Presidential Anthem of the United States written by English composer James Sanderson.  The first time "Hail to the Chief" was played to honor a U.S. President was in 1815 during the commemoration of George Washington's birthday.  Preceding the familiar theme is the usual four ruffles and flourishes.

Also, as the president of the United States is the commander in chief we proudly honor those heroes in the military who are under the command of the president. I think you will love the a Capella version of the Armed Forces Melody by the vocal majority.

Finally on this election special, we honor the greatest country ever in the history of man, with one of the best versions of the National Anthem, sung by Whitney Houston at the Super Bowl.

I hope you enjoy this Tales 2012 Election Special Weekend.
