A soundtrack for victory?

Secretary of State Deb Markowitz kicked off her campaign for governor today. And to promote the event, her campaign sent out a list of songs that she will play at the event.

Here's the list:

Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)
Dierks Bentley

Back On the Train
PHISH

Rock with You
The Jacksons

Blinded by the Light
Bruce Springsteen

The Best
Tina Turner

Shining Star
Earth, Wind and Fire

Sir Duke
Stevie Wonder

This is Our Moment
Kenny Chesney

Ain't No Stopping Us Now
McFadden and Whitehead

Still the One
Orleans

 Use Somebody
Kings of Leon

There are some interesting choices here – who knew Deb was a Kings of Leon fan? But did we really need to hear "Still the One" one more time? That song should be retired from all future political events for the safety of voters' ears. And an eagle-eared reader clued us in that "Rock With You" is by Michael Jackson, not the Jackson 5.
