DOVER PLAINS, N.Y., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- The 1979s rocker who flipped when President Bush used his hit "Still the One" without permission wants New York voters to choose him as "The One."
"I'm putting my musical career aside to run for Congress," said Hall, 57, a resident of Dover Plains, N.Y. "The situation in our nation and the world is at such a crucial juncture and the stakes are so high. I want to be a voice for creativity and honesty in solving our problems."
Hall, an environmentalist and lifelong Democrat, was incensed when the Bush campaign latched onto "Still the One" for the last campaign without seeking the band's permission.
The song was dropped.
