New Album Plays Off President's Political Troubles

It had to happen. With the White House continuing to fight off a variety of sex scandal allegations, someone at BMG records got the bright idea to release a suitably-themed compilation entitled "The President's Greatest Hits.

Hits" includes such suggestive tracks as KC & the Sunshine Band's "Get Down Tonight," Tommy James and the Shondell's "I Think We're Alone Now," the Pointer Sisters' "Slow Hand" and Harry Nilsson's "Makin' Whoopee." The White House had no comment regarding the "Hits" album.

A happier collection of statesmen may be the Presidents of the United States of America, who are riding a wave of popularity on their way out of office.

The group's cover of the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" has helped vault the soundtrack for the new Adam Sandler movie, "The Wedding Singer," into the Top 10, and the band's last album, "Pure Frosting," which features a collection of rarities, B-sides and live tracks, arrived in stores last Tuesday.
