This morning, the editor of Rolling Stone said that Obama has great musical taste, which doesn't surprise me. In an interview with RS, Obama admits that he has "pretty eclectic tastes."
What's on his iPod?
The Rolling Stones, Ludacris, Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, and Dylan. He's quoted as saying, "One of my favourites ... is Maggie's Farm. It speaks to me as I listen to some of the political rhetoric." There's also Miles, Coltrane and Charlie Parker. Pretty decent mix, if you ask me.
Curious, I looked up Bush's iPod list and found this partial list:
John Fogerty, Van Morrison, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Knack, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Alan Jackson, George Jones, Kenny Chesney, Eric Clapton, Robert Palmer and Bryan Adams.
Not too unexpected. No Hammell on Trial or Steve Earle.
The VP rocks out to Hank Williams, some tunes from the 40's and the wails of tortured prisoners. Again, no surprises.
Hillary Clinton's iPod is pretty cool. Her playlist is boomer-centric with the Beatles, the Eagles and Aretha. No Celine Dion.
And John McCain's iPod: Abba.
So, what's on your iPod? And would it hurt you if you ran for office?
