Election party music: any suggestions?

Asked by chad (694points) November 4th, 2008

Tonight and tomorrow night, I am going to a few election/patriotic themed parties, and I was wondering if there are any songs (outside of “Born in the USA”) that I should compile together and put on while I’m there. Any and all help would be awesome, and I have lots of lurves to give out ;)

Check out the song ‘Better Way’. It is beyond perfect and it gives me goosebumps!

Just heard “Promised Land” by Bruce Springsteen last night and it reminded me that
that would be a great song to play.

How about Dylan’s “Times They Are a Changin’” or am I dating myself too much?

aidje's avatar

Only because you asked. :-) Dylan is classic—with him it’s not about age, but simple awareness.

I know it’s late, but I want to contribute the song Super Tuesday by Hearts of Palm U.K. simply because it’s a catchy little ditty that I’d like to get the word out about. So find it an listen, for sure!
