ABBA? Really?!

US Presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John McCain have each revealed their ten favourite songs to Blender Magazine. I realise this post is a bit of a cop-out but the post I’ve been working on is taking a little longer than planned. Anyhow I thought this was an interesting insight even and there are a few gems picked by both though I’m sure both were revised a hundred times by million dollar PR teams. Enjoy.

Barack Obama‘s Top Ten:

The Fugees – Ready Or Not

Marvin Gaye – ‘What’s Going On’

Bruce Springsteen – ‘I’m On Fire’

The Rolling Stones -‘Gimme Shelter’

Nina Simone – ‘Sinnerman’

Kanye West – ‘Touch The Sky’

Frank Sinatra – ‘You’d Be So Easy To Love’

Aretha Franklin – ‘Think’

U2 – ‘City of Blinding Lights’ – ‘Yes We Can’

John McCain‘s top ten:
