Aimee Mann debuts Sandy song to tune of 'Mandy'

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -- Singer Aimee Mann has a new song born of her experience riding out this week's superstorm in a Brooklyn hotel.

Called "Sandy" and sung to the tune of Barry Manilow's "Mandy," the humorous song cheered a storm-weary concert audience in New York's Westchester County on Thursday night. Many of the attendees found a warm room almost as inviting as the music.

She sang: "Oh Sandy, now we hate you as much as Osama, after Con Ed exploded. Oh Sandy, and Chris Christie is calling Obama, glad I already voted."

New Jersey's Republican Gov. Chris Christie praised President Barack Obama and toured storm damage with him earlier this week.

Mann, a California resident, was in the New York area for a week's worth of shows. Two had to be rescheduled because of the storm.
