AND THAT’S A NO ON ‘9 TO 5’
One Democratic presidential hopeful will have to go without a certain cheerful tune by Dolly Parton from now on. No more “9 to 5” for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been using the song to introduce campaign rallies and underscore her populist messages without waiting for clearance to do so.
“Using campaign songs to help connect with voters can cause trouble for presidential hopefuls if musicians object to the use of their works, as Warren could be finding out,” notes The Associated Press
“We did not approve the request, and we do not approve requests like this of a political nature,” Danny Nozell, Miss Parton’s manager, told the news service.
The Warren campaign, meanwhile, has declined to comment.
