The Five Best Songs on Mitt Romney's Campaign Playlist
It's Election Day and that means not only will millions of Americans be making their way to voting booths in order to participate in our great democracy, but chances are they'll first have to work through that dreaded pre-election anxiety as the fateful hour draws closer. What better way to pass the time and get in that election day mood than by jamming to your candidate's Presidential Playlist?
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney grew up around politics. Having participated in both of his parents' campaigns and regularly running for major political offices since 1994, he should have a good idea as to what makes for a selection of strong campaign music. Even though recent supporter Meat Loaf is nowhere to be heard, Romney's playlist is reflective of the spirit he wants to drum up in his audience.
Soggy Bottom Boys - "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow" 2000
Starting things off, we have a hundred-year-old traditional American folk song performed by a fictional band. While it's one of the most memorable and beloved soundtrack cuts of the past 15 years, the O Brother, Where Art Thou? centerpiece perhaps shows Romney's appreciation for deep tradition and George Clooney(which is double strange considering he's a huge Obama supporter)
Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons - "December, 1963 (Oh What A Night)" 1975
Also giving us a glance to the past is Romney's choice of "December, 1963 (Oh What A Night.)" As great as it always is to hear this nostalgia-fueled synth-powered jam, some of us were hoping that Romney would have chosen Cam'Ron's remix instead.
