I don’t have to tell you that political ad campaigns on all sides are getting nasty as it gets closer to the election. While opponents, like primitive apes, are hurling turds of discontent at each other, only one man has come forth with a plan to bring America together! That man is Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show” on Comedy Central.

In Stewarts own words, “We’re looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat; who feel that the loudest voices shouldn’t be the only ones that get heard; and who believe that the only time it’s appropriate to draw a Hitler mustache on someone is when that person is actually Hitler or Charlie Chaplin in certain roles.”

Jon, continues, “Are you one of those people? Excellent. Then we’d like you to join us in Washington, DC on October 30 — a date of no significance whatsoever — at the Daily Show’s “Rally to Restore Sanity.”

Ours is a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs) — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority. If we had to sum up the political view of our participants in a single sentence… we couldn’t. That’s sort of the point.”

Jon, you’ve everything going for you except an inspiring theme song…that is until now…wait until you hear the  chorus of “United We Stand” by the Joel Diamond experience featuring Benny Mardones and Teresa James!

Last week BP oil announced that they spent a million dollars to secure the number one spot on all the search engine results, so when you look for “Oil Spill” it directs you to the company’s “comforting and optimistic” website.  Only a month ago friends of mine were laughing at me  for putting any value on being number one on any of these lists! Now they’re asking me how I get up to billion and a half Google search results on just one one of my articles.!

S#!T, I was #1 on Google Search results for the term PATRIOTIC MUSIC VIDEOS for almost four years!  When I started getting thousands of hits on my website every year during this patriotic season, from Memorial Day through 9/11, I realized the value of topping a search results list. Since I started blogging four years ago I’ve been #1 over 50 times, with various different search terms.

Last year I had two songs I co-wrote released on four Michael Jackson posthumously released albums, and three weeks before Christmas, me and my cousin Sharon Link, contacted every Michael Jackson fan club in the world and alerted them to the 17 videos up on the Internet of a song I co – wrote for Michael Jackson with George Clinton, Jr., (just Google MICHAEL JACKSON LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE. ) 1,650,000,000

I’ve known the power of Google for a long time. In my role as internet consultant I use Google to improve my client’s presence on the web, and promote my blog to an audience I couldn’t have dreamed of reaching only a few years ago.

I’m proud to say that I was the first to tout Tommy James’ shocking new book  (just Google ME, THE MOB, AND THE MUSIC) and the first to report on who is under consideration the new judge on “American Idol” with over 100, 000   Google search results (Google DIAMOND TO REPLACE COWELL)

Now I’m in the throes of an ambitious campaign to help bring America back together with the unifying power of music. Here’s the first of some NEW PATRIOTIC MUSIC VIDEOS I’m gathering starting with The Joel Diamond Experience and the brilliant remake of “UNITED WE STAND” featuring Benny Mardones and Teresa James!

This morning my good friend producer/manager Joel Diamond, who is under consideration to replace Simon Cowell, gave me a first hand account of what happened last night at the “AMERICAN IDOL” finale.  Joel says,

“Last night my 17 year old daughter Briana and I had great seats at the Nokia Theater in Hollywood, for the season finale of “AMERICAN IDOL” and it sure did not disappoint! In the closest race of the 9 seasons of the show, with only 2% of the vote separating Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze, Lee deservedly walked away with the crown.

How moving was the tribute to Simon Cowell, who seemed to genuinely enjoy all the roasting, kudos, and accolades from everybody, including former judge Paula Abdul who looked absolutely gorgeous when the curtain rose on her. There were spectacular guest performances by Alice Cooper, Christina Aguilera, Bee Gees, Chicago, Janet Jackson, Joe Cocker, Christina Aguilera, Michael McDonald, and Alanis Morrisette, which included duets with members of the final top ten and certainly what seemed to be almost straight from his hospital bed, the surprise appearance of Brett Michaels, which brought everybody to their feet.

Another highlight of the evening for me was the former winners, runners up, and exceptional past contestants all coming out dressed in white,  which dazzled the crowd with their moving Simon Cowell tribute.

Artie, I’ve been to Academy Awards, Emmy’s, Grammy’s, etc., but I’ve never seen the excitement that I saw last night at the Nokia Theater.  It was total pandemonium both inside and outside the theater.

I would give anything to have a shot at producing just one track with either Crystal or Lee! Having said that, I’m now in the process of recording a new CD with the JOEL DIAMOND EXPERIENCE, which will feature duets by both veteran artists as well as new and underexposed artists.  The first single from the album, UNITED WE STAND (2010) featuring BENNY MARDONES (who wrote and was the artist on “Into The Night” which will also be Usher’s next single) and Teresa James, was just rush released yesterday.

It was also quite interesting bump into and chat with after the show many of the music industry notables, both artists and behind the scenes executives, who already knew about my being considered as the next American Idol Judge.  One of them even said to me, ‘I bet you were already backstage in Simon’s dressing room trying on one of his black T shirts to see if it fits’.”

While I was doing an interview with producer/ manager Joel Diamond, who’s under consideration to replace Simon Cowell on “American Idol, he played me a track he was working on. Although I’ve been known to leap on desks and dance around offices when I got excited about something, I’ve never experienced what happened to me next.

By the time the first chorus played of Joel’s brilliant remake of “UNITED WE STAND 2010” featuring Benny Mardones and Teresa James, tears were running down my cheek and I was a bit embarrassed. I never experienced such an emotional reaction before, publicly or privately and knew once again, I was witness to an extraordinary piece of musical history.

Only twice in my career have I heard a track one time and predicted it would become record of the year, the first was a test pressing of “Jesus Christ Superstar” that my friend MCA publisher (at the time) Don Williams played for me, which he, Allan Rinde and I helped get to the top of the charts.

The second record was among the songs I gave Olivia Newton –John to record, “I Honestly Love You”, which MCA didn’t even want to put out.

When I asked Joel what his plans for “UNITED WE STAND 2010” were, he said he wanted to finish it up and debut it in a year and a half at the 10th anniversary of 9/11 tragedy. I tried to control myself but I slipped and said, “Are you out of your f#@kin’ mind! The record is perfect and should be out right now! We all need to be inspired RIGHT NOW!!

I’m proud to say that he’s taken my suggestion and has rush released “UNITED WE STAND 2010”by the Joel Diamond Experience, featuring Benny Mardones and Teresa James.

Joel has just made a video, directed by Wedigo Watson, that has just been put up on YouTube.
