Judd Apatow-Executive Produced Video for Loudon Wainwright's 'I Had A Dream' Debuts on Funny or Die

The comedy video website Funny or Die premiered Loudon Wainwright's music video for his latest song, "I Had a Dream."  Watch HERE

Throughout his career, Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III has occasionally turned his attention to current events, “Social Studies” (1999) and “10 Songs for the New Depression” (2010) for example. This year’s primary season has once again given him something to (ruefully) sing about, so, acting like a one-man Super PAC, he’s rushed to write, record, and release his broadsided stumpsong.
