Phil Ford is back from vacation with a very thorough listing of presidential campaign music. It's both less judgmental and more complete than Wonkette's rant (no grade higher than a C?) New York Times reporter Ben Werschkul had a series of reports almost a year ago, including some almost candidates at the Democratic National Committee winter meetings. And breaking it Old School is a listing of campaign music from 1840 to 1920, provided by Parlor Songs.

Additions to Phil's list:
Joe Biden: "Centerfield"
Wesley Clark: "Waiting on the World to Change"
Hillary Clinton: "Right Here, Right Now" "Blue Sky"
Chris Dodd: "Get Ready"
John Edwards: "This is Our Country"
Rudy Guiliani: "Life is a Highway"
Mike Gravel: "Power to the People"
Mike Huckabee: "Free Bird"
Dennis Kucinich: "America the Beautiful"
Bill Richardson: "Lean on Me" "Baby I Love Your Way" "Mess We're In"
Tom Vilsack: "Reach Out I'll Be There"
George Washington: "God Save George Washington"
George McClellan: "Little Mac! Little Mac! You're the Very Man" (by Stephen Foster!)
