Happy Presidents Day to all our American readers - and yes, I know it's grotesque to have to put Jimmy Carter and Franklin Pierce up there with Washington and Lincoln, but don't blame me, blame the government. So, in honor of the false equivalence of this newish holiday, here's an encore presentation of an audio special we first aired six years ago way back at the dawn of the Obama era, featuring 44 songs for 44 presidents - plus a few extras. It's the widest range of music ever presented on a SteynOnline podcast - songwriters from George M Cohan and Irving Berlin to Sheryl Crow and Jay-Z, performed by everyone from Judy Garland to Groucho Marx to Lou Reed to Ronald Reagan.

In part two of our musical tour through the Oval Office, we start with Benjamin Harrison and work our way through to Barack Obama. To listen, simply click the lower button above.
