That Song in Your Post-Election Heart

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Songs of joy, and music of mourning: Regardless of which presidential candidate you backed yesterday, your heart is, no doubt, singing a happy or sad song today.

What is that song? Does it keep you rocking in the free world? Does it say ch-ch-ch-changes? Or does it resemble the soundtrack of a horror movie?

If you haven't picked out a playlist yet, John Schaefer, host of WNYC's Soundcheck, has some suggestions for you.

"I am a man who will fight for your honor. I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of..."

(Awkward feelings running through me right now.)

How about Hard Habit To Break. "Being without you takes a lot of getting used to. Should learn to live with it but I don't want to..."

Too much? Yeah, way too much.
