A recent Rolling Stone article showed the complete list of music Hillary Clinton is using at her rallies (her choices were, like everything else she does, described as sounding "focus-grouped”).
Here’s our list of tunes that more accurately capture the vibe of the Clinton campaign.
Avicii – Liar Liar
From initially claiming there was no classified information on her secret email server to her innumerable flip-flops on virtually every issue, this one is pretty self-explanatory. Words like “dishonest” and “liar” top the list of words Americans are using to describe her.
Destiny’s Child – Bills, Bills, Bills
Hillary Clinton claimed she and Bill were “dead broke” when she left the White House. She’s cashed in by charging hundreds of thousands of dollars in speeches, even making money on the backs of college students by demanding $225,000 to speak at schools (and that’s the discounted rate!) Because remember, she and Bill “gotta pay our bills.”
The Bangles – Manic Monday
Hillary Clinton had a manic Monday of her own this week, as she struggled during the debate in Flint to explain why she isn’t releasing the transcripts of her paid speeches behind closed doors and stumbled over a question about her position on fracking. Oh, and Bernie Sanders beat her soundly in the Maine caucus, another bad sign for an inconsistent campaign.
Garth Brooks - Friends In Low Places
Longtime Clinton associate Sidney Blumenthal sent 23 classified memos to her secret email server. That is a disturbing national security breach, considering Blumenthal didn’t even work for the government. Clinton’s willingness to surround herself with people willing to dodge transparency laws shows an above-the-law mentality of her own.
Cheap Trick – I Want You To Want Me
Hillary Clinton is a fundamentally flawed candidate who is having problems attracting voters of many different backgrounds. Democrat voter turnout has slumped badly since 2008, showing a bigtime lack of enthusiasm for her. She can’t recreate the coalition of voters who elected President Obama, especially among young voters who see her as the past and fail to connect with the inauthentic and calculated Clinton campaign. If she’s the nominee she will enter the general election in poor position to overcome record Republican turnout.
Taylor Swift – We Are Never Getting Back Together
Hillary Clinton has repeatedly boasted about leading the “Russia reset” while she was Secretary of State. But seven years after the fact, it’s clear it has been a failure and American-Russian relations are frostier than in any time in recent memory.
Sam Smith – Money On My Mind
During Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, prominent Clinton Foundation donors and Democrat insiders were allegedly given high-level access to State Department officials. There’s also the Clinton Foundation’s botched tax returns, which at first did not declare donations from foreign governments. The State Department under Hillary Clinton was a revolving door for lobbyists, raising major questions about conflicts of interest.
The Cranberries – Liar
Like Hillary Clinton, the Cranberries peaked in the 1990s.
