    This is a nice diversion from work or whatever you're doing if you have some time.

    21 Songs of 21st Century Politics
    Americans live with a soundtrack: the relentless chatter of media, the clash and clatter of daily life, collisions with history, voices in our hearts and heads, sounds we love and noises we can't escape. Out of that roar comes our culture and our politics.

    These 21 songs pulled from the musical soundtrack of our 21st Century aren't necessarily the artistically best songs so far -- or even in the year they were written. They aren't songs we all know: our soundtrack comes at us through so many technologies with so many niches of "aural art" that we barely have a common songbook. As Politics Daily reporter David Wood informed me, even our soldiers carry their own individualized music instead of relying on some Good Morning, Vietnam broadcast.

    Some songs in this soundtrack are controversial and – WARNING – may contain objectionable lyrics, some were monster hits, some barely got heard. But this soundtrack tells us something about the complexities of who we are and how we got here, echoes our time, and traces the politics of we, the people.
