      Great list, Carl. Here are a few more I found at:
      http://www.horriblescreechingnoise.com/reagan.html (with sound clips)

      Old Mother Reagan (Violent Femmes)
      Ballad of Ronald Reagan (Austin Lounge Lizards)
      Two Tribes (Frankie Goes to Hollywood)
      Money$ Too Tight (To Mention) (Simply Red) -- about Reagan??
      If Reagan Played Disco (The Minutemen)
      Rapmaster Ronnie (Reathel Bean & The DBC)
      Talking Ronald Reagan Blues (Loudon Wainwright III)
      (We Begin Bombing in) 5 Minutes (Bonzo Goes to Washington)

      There's a discussion on a local music community msg board about Reagan's
      death and it cracks me up how many people are chastising me for not
      respecting the death of a great man. I'm getting preached to by people
      who were born the year that bastard took office.

      one of my all-time favorites is Gil Scott-Heron's "Re-Ron." I used to
      love playing that leading up to and even after the 1984 election during
      my college radio days.
