Bruce Springsteen Has Topped a Survey Asking ‘Who Should Write a New National Anthem?’
‘Vanity Fair’ and ’60 Minutes’ recently collaborated on a new survey, which…among other things…asked: ‘Who Should Write a New National Anthem?’
Bruce Springsteen came out on top, with 22% of the vote.
The rest of the ranking broke down like this: Dolly Parton (19%), Stevie Wonder (18%), Bob Dylan (11%), “Star Wars” composer John Williams (10%), Jay-Z (8%) and Madonna (5%).
As far as I can tell, it was a “multiple choice” survey…and those were the options provided. (They stuck to American artists, saving us the embarrassment of choosing Justin Bieber, Adele, Nickelback or Rihanna.)
A “random sample” of 1,026 adults participated in the poll. There were other questions, too…like “How do you feel about paparazzi photographers?” and “If your life were a movie, what type of movie would it be?”
