I knew I liked the guy
Regular readers now that I have a fatal weakness for ABBA. I can’t help it. Sometime back in the 70s, during my formative years, they left an imprint on my brain, and I just get fizzy happy when I hear their bouncy music and beautiful harmonies. It turns out that I’m not alone. John McCain also likes ABBA! Indeed, except for the Merle Haggard song on his list, which I don’t know, he’s compiled as his top ten list a bunch of songs I can live with too.
In contrast to the McCain song list, with the exception of Sinatra’s “Easy to Love,” I don’t like Obama’s songs. I don’t hold that against him though, since I’ve always been out of touch with my generation when it comes to music — and Obama is my generation, being one month (give or take) younger than I am.
I leave you with McCain’s No. 3 favorite song, which also serves as a good song for moderate Democrats who have been leaning to Obama and who need a little push in another direction:
