Comparing Presidential Music

According to his Facebook fan page, Barack Obama is a fan of legendary ’90s super-group The Fugees! If you were wavering before (and are a 4080reader), this alone should clinch it for you. Even ten years ago it would have been political suicide for a presidential candidate to publically reveal he or she listened to hip-hop, let alone consider a rap group among his/her favourite musicians (can you imagine Bill Clinton revealing he was a fan of, say, Public Enemey in 1991?). Also on Obama’s list are Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder and Johan Sebastian Bach. Our boy has an impressive, if not eclectic, taste in music.

On Hillary Clinton’s list? Carly Simon, Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones and U2. Not bad, although I’d give the edge to Obama so far.

How about McCain? Nothing! He lists his favourite movies (“Viva Zapata,” “Letters From Iwo Jima” and “Some Like It Hot” (seriously?)), books (“For Whom The Bell Tolls”) and tv shows (“24” and “Seinfeld”), but a list of favourite music is strangely missing. Does the Republican nominee not listen to music? Or perhaps his taste is so strange his handlers are afraid to reveal it to Facebookers? Interesting.

Finally, how about Dennis Kucinich, that plucky underdog who, for the longest time, refused to quit the race? Dude is a fan of Michael Franti and Spearhead! Sold!
