Dave Stewart’s “American Prayer”

Worst: Dave Stewart’s “American Prayer” Released on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, Dave Stewart’s “American Prayer” is a pro-Obama ditty designed to tug on every heart string known to man, coming complete with a “We Are the World”-like video ( Jason Alexander! Barry Manilow! Whoopi Goldberg! Perez Hilton! Perez Hilton? Yes, Perez Hilton.) He may mean well, but it’s still pompous. What does anyone expect from a song that boasts Bono as a co-writer? -- Todd MartensLuis Sinco / Los Angeles Times
