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.

  1. What’s the difference between Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll?
    They sort of sound the same. Any difference.
    I’m not talking about the crappy modern RnB with stupid beats here, I’m talking about classic RnB. Also, I’m talking about rock & roll, not rock.

  2. How long does it take to tour the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & other places in Cleveland worth checking out?
    Just wondering approximately how long it would take to tour the museum. I’ve been to Cleveland several times for Indians and Cavs games but never to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I wasn’t sure how big of a place it was.

  3. How does writing, art, music, poetry and drama help children with verbal communication?
    I have to do research how writing, art, music, poetry and dram help children with speaking (verbal communication). I already have a few for music, poetry and art but I’m clueless with the rest. Please, I would like to know how the rest help kids with talking. Thanks a lot! :)

  4. very cool space! I love your taste and it looks like it’d be so much fun to poke around in there… I used to live in DE but am now in VA, but if I ever go back that way to visit family I’d love to see it in person :)
    luckily though, here in Virginia I found your Cupcake chardonnay at the grocery store for $8.99 (such a lovely treat to be able to buy wine where I can get cat litter and tampons too!)…. I was intrigued by your love of it ( and its pretty bottle I must admit) so snagged a bottle… thanks for the heads up :) cheers!
