Ashford and Simpson to Release "Solid (As Barack)"

Do you remember the Obama Variety Half-Hour where the SNL crew sang classics like Don't You Forget About Me and Solid (As Barack)?


Ashford & Simpson are turning SNL's "Solid As Barack" parody into a real-life single, in time for the inaugural celebration. The TV version of "Solid (As Barack)," a take-off on Ashford & Simpson's 1984 hit "Solid (As a Rock)," was performed by SNL cast members Fred Armisen and SNL alum Maya Rudolph.
The new Ashford & Simpson version, available as a digital download on Jan. 20, will have expanded lyrics for the complete song.

How fantastic!
