Fanfare for the First Lady

But only for Jill Biden. Did you know that she has her own original composition that the bands play when she enters the room, just like they play “Hail To The Chief” for the President?

Apparently somebody in the White House thought this would be a good idea. Band members never heard of this before, and think it’s kind of odd.

Jill Biden apparently has her own walk-up music now.

The Marine Corps band was reportedly instructed last fall to give the first lady her own entrance theme, a source told me. The band now has in its repertoire an original composition titled “Fanfare for the First Lady.” The song, the source said, is essentially Jill Biden’s personal “Hail to the Chief,” in that it is to be performed and repeated at official White House functions, from her first appearance until she is ready to speak.

“Fanfare for the First Lady” has created both amusement and confusion within the band, with some remarking that in their many years playing in the group, this is the first time they’ve been asked to perform an original composition designated specifically for the first lady.

Michael LaRosa, Jill Biden’s press secretary, says the entire story is bunkum.

“The first lady does not have a song anybody has written for her specifically. She has no ‘Hail to the Chief’ song. She has no song,” he told me. “She never asked anyone to create a song.”

“The White House asked nobody, not one person, to compose an exclusive entry song, or any song, for the first lady,” LaRosa added. “None of that is accurate.”

In fact, he said, “Fanfare for the First Lady” was the band’s idea. He said the band approached the White House with a proposal for new music. “Fanfare for the First Lady” wasn’t even initially written for Jill Biden, he continued, adding it’s simply a finalized version of a piece of music that was already nearly completed when the band first broached the topic with the White House.

“We didn’t ask for it,” LaRosa said. “They came and presented us the option. We had no idea it would even be used again.”

I think LaRosa is a fibber. The fact is that the music exists. The music is played. Neither Jill Biden’s office, nor Joe Biden’s office, has protested.

    Our “pseudo president” is probably operating as Edith Wilson did after Woodrow’s stroke in 1919. I guess Edith was our first/obviously not our last “de facto” female President.

    Her song was composed many years ago with the help of Boots Randolph. It’s called Yakety Sax.

    I found the music rather frantic. And the trumpet was dissonant.
