The Wendy Davis Playlist

January 21, 2014 1 comment

In honor of the bumpy road that the Wendy Davis campaign is currently traversing, and thanks to an idea that started on Tony Katz Tonight, I put together a short playlist for the Wendy Davis campaign – just something for them to listen to when the days get long, and their bogus narratives wear thin. So, with credit to Tony, PrairieDogSD, and the many others who frequent the most entertaining chat room, weekdays between 9pm and midnight, I give you, the WDPL. (links lead to YouTube videos)

  1. Maneater” by Hall & Oates (especially fitting after considering her divorce to her second husband was ONE day after he finished paying off her student loan debts)
  2. Lies” by Fleetwood Mac
  3. Oh No Not My Baby” by Aretha Franklin (In “honor” of her filibuster supporting abortions)
  4. Stupid Girl” by Cold
  5. New Low” by Middle Class Rut (“So many directions, I don’t know which way to go, I’m so busy doing nothing, I got nothing to show”)
  6. You Really Got Me” by the Kinks (interesting when considered from a supporter’s point of view)
  7. You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by the Rolling Stones (for her dubious past and her attempts to change it)
  8. Liar” by Rains (for either of her ex-husbands [the second filed for divorce citing ‘infidelity‘])
  9. Oh Daddy” by Fleetwood Mac (the second Fleetwood song, due to her father introducing her to her second husband, who was 13 years her senior)
  10. O Fortuna” by Carl Orff (if she should actually, somehow, win the Texas governor’s race)

So, there you have it – ten songs that fit her campaign for one reason or another. By title or lyric, there are so many more that would be applicable to this mess of a campaign, feel free to add your choices in the comments.
