I have one of those little iPod Shuffle thingies. It’s a small thing I can wear. Fits under a tie nicely. The headphones — I think they call them earbuds — work great for me. And, the music I hear helps me through the day.
What’s on it? Classical music. There are a couple of collections — The World’s Most Relaxing Classical Music Selections, 50 Essential Pieces of Classical Music — as well as all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies. It’s what I want to hear. Sometimes, it’s what I need to hear.
I wonder, though: what do others listen to?
For instance, what’s on Barack Obama’s iPod? Or Joe Biden’s? Or Paul Ryan’s? Or Mitt Romney’s?
I doubt Obama is listening to a playback of his first debate with Romney. Or his second, for that matter. I wonder what music he listens to. I imagine that in late January, he’ll have The Silhouettes’ Get A Job playing. But what about now?
What do you think? What’s on Obama’s iPod? Or what’s on the iPod of some of the others?
