Oldies/impossible song

Question
hi;
this has been driving me crazy for years;
I remember hearing a song on the radio in l.a. around 71-73..
all I can remember is, it was like a megamix, or better yet, a break in, and had the words "mr. president, mr president in it, with clips from groups like the Jackson 5, etc.
I realize that this is an impossible question, but I gotta try!
thanks

Answer
Hi David,
I wonder if you mean "Convention '72" by The Delegates, which used contemporary, early 70's hits to tell the story! It actually became a top 10 hit!! I don't remember a Jackson 5 record in there but there was lots of other stuff.

Check it out and let me know:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyzoK1yIBIc

Thanks for asking,

Lou

And there was this one, too.It said "Mr President" where the Convention record did not. Still no Jackson Five, though.

Expertise

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.

Experience

I have been answering questions for this site for a few years. It would be nice to be reinstated. I have no idea how many questions I have answered but many people have written to me to say how I have touched their lives by helping them locate a song that is important to them or a loved one.
