Many took to Twitter Tuesday night to discuss not only Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s primary victory in New York, but the song she chose as she came to the stage to celebrate the win.

Clinton soundly defeated self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont in the Empire State primary 58 percent to 42 percent, taking away 135 delegates to Sanders’ 104, according to The New York Times.

While more serious people were focusing on the speech from the left, center or, right, others decided to have a laugh with the song:
