In our continued efforts to unwrap the musical and artistic sides of our presidential candidates we have been given this gift from the Associated Press.
In their musical tastes, the presidential candidates are a little bit country, a little bit opera, oldies, pop, soul and goth rock.
The Associated Press is asking the candidates a series of questions about their personal tastes, habits and backgrounds. Today's question and their answers is:
What was your last music purchase?
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden: “My sister's playlist.''
New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: Carly Simon's “Into White.''
Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd: Soundtrack to 'Jersey Boys.''
Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: U2.
Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Likes Willie Nelson.
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: “The latest music purchase would probably be 'Ray' – the soundtrack from the Ray Charles movie.''
New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: George Strait, “50 Number Ones.''
Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback: Christian artist Michael W. Smith.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: Verdi's “Macbeth.''
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: Evanescence, the goth rock group from Little Rock, Ark.
California Rep. Duncan Hunter: Favors country and gospel.
Arizona Sen. John McCain: Likes “Sounds Of Summer – The Very Best Of The Beach Boys.''
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: “Selection of Roy Orbison songs from iTunes.''
Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo: “Frank Sinatra duet combo.''
We will let you know as we start to hear back from all the campaigns on their support for music and arts education!
