Mercifully, the 2016 presidential campaign is coming to an end. As a not-so-fond farewell, I compiled a playlist of 16 of the greatest political rock songs.
Seeing the Chilean cover band was like taking a university course on Pink Floyd. I was stunned how thin my knowledge was of the foundational rock band.
Some music just sounds better in certain settings. Like seeing an animal in its natural habitat instead of in a zoo. Over time, I have developed a musical geography of sorts, mapping the places where I hear certain songs more clearly and which, as a result, have become inextricably bound up with those songs in a way that is now impossible to untangle.
This Playlist is a sampling of tunes on my musical map, songs that have become inextricably linked with certain places.
