Obama, the Illinois Democrat, chose Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” as his No. 2 pick after the Fugees. Songs “I’m on Fire” by Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stone’s “Gimme Shelter” and Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman” rounded out his leading five.Obama can't compile a top ten list without including a song that is about him? And the article leaves out the fact that it wasn't written for him, it was just one of his speeches set to music. Oh, and you can even hear him delivering the speech beneath will.i.am's singing.
Other artists on Obama’s list were Kanye West, U2 and Aretha Franklin. The contender also gave a nod to will.i.am and his Internet sensation, “Yes We Can,” which was written for Obama.
Why is this not surprising?
