Obama's Crowd-Pleasing Mix Tape

The official playlist that will play during all crowd events during the Obama 2012 campaign hit internet today and, wouldn't you know it, the list is filled with great songs. The track listing ranges all over: from the classics (Al Green, Areatha Franklin, James Taylor); to Indie bands (The Arcade Fire, Wilco, Noah And The Whale); to Country (Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker); and rounds out the mix with some universally-loved songs like ELO's "Mr. Blue Sky." In other words, it's a crowd-pleasing soundtrack that virtually anybody can -- and will -- enjoy.
