John Hickenlooper's gold record as Denver Mayor: Kenny Be's Fotochop Friday

If John Hickenlooper has taught us anything, it is that a Denver mayor is not to be judged by his accomplishments, but by his clever campaign photo-op outfits. In keeping with his mayoral magic of gaining attention through gimmicky garments, the goofy geek gets decked out as a sexy babe slathered in desert topping to release Whipped Cream & Other Delights. The record contains all of his greatest 2010 Gubernatorial campaign promises captured in song...

Hickenlooper's crisp rendition of "A Taste of Money" and the brew-pub-inflected "Guv Potion #9" are his best-known numbers. Beyond these favorites, the singing nerd serves up slow Spanish balladry ("Phone Tree"), breezy Broadway-style tunes that reference his need for attention ("Snapshots and Poses"), melancholic rhumbas about his early days as an unemployed geologist trust-funder ("Brother, Can You Spend A Dime?") and Southwestern-seasoned polkas ("Wingnuts"). Each song has the smooth delivery and bright finish of a growler of oatmeal stout.
