Spanglish Version of “Georgia on My Mind” Is Catchy –and Will Hopefully Help Flip Georgia

Georgia on My Mind’s Spanglish version will make you get up dance –and hopefully vote.

I mean, I’m not precisely an “illegal,” but given the current political here, a free ride back to Mexico doesn’t sound like a really bad idea right now.
