As if I needed something else

CNN Reports:

“If there is anything I am lacking in, I’ve got to tell you, it is taste in music and art and other great things in life,” McCain joked. “I’ve got to say that a lot of my taste in music stopped about the time I impacted a surface-to-air missile with my own airplane and never caught up again.”

I suppose he’s “joking”. But it’s still horrifying to me.

(Don’t worry. I realize that this is a small quote taken out of its context, but I’d love to learn what kind of record McCain has with supporting the arts. Then I’ll be less likely to role my eyes at this sort of thing.)

This made me think of Blender’s White House DJ Battle. Both Presidential candidates shared their top 10 songs:

Ready or Not Fugees
What’s Going On Marvin Gaye
I’m On Fire Bruce Spingsteen
Gimme Shelter Rolling Stones
Sinnerman Nina Simone
Touch the Sky Kanye West
You’d Be So Easy to Love Frank Sinatra
Think Aretha Franklin
City of Blinding Lights U2
Yes We Can

Dancing Queen ABBA
2. Blue Bayou Roy Orbison
3. Take a Chance On Me ABBA
4. If We MakeIt Through December Merle Haggard
5. As Time Goes By Dooley Wilson
6. Good Vibrations The Beach Boys
7. What A Wonderful World Louis Armstrong
8. I’ve Got You Under My Skin Frank Sinatra
9. Sweet Caroline Neil Diamond
10. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes The Platters

I kind of wonder how honest they’re both being. But really?
