Bush Forced To Drop 1970s Pop Anthem

PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH has been forced to scrap his campaign anthem - because the writer of the tune isn't a fan and never gave permission.

Bush has been championing his cause with 1970s hit STILL THE ONE by ORLEANS pumping out from speakers at Republican campaign stops.

But the songwriter behind the track, JOHN HALL - a former New York Democratic county legislator - has insisted Bush and his campaign officials drop the song.

Hall says, "I'm not just some guy that's stoned out and happened to write a song, and even if I were, it would still be a problem, because you should always ask permission to use the work.

"It's obviously attractive as a slogan, but this election should be about content and facts."

Bush campaign spokesperson NICOLE DEVERISH confirms the track has been scrapped: "Out of deference to Mr Hall's views, the song will no longer be played."
