From the Archives: 2008 Stock Market Crash Playlist

I worked for the Obama campaign in Denver in 2008. We made this playlist on September 29, after the House GOP (remember them?) scuttled the bailout. It was a late night.

  1. Ecstasy of Gold (Ennio Morricone)
  2. Five Percent for Nothing (Yes)
  3. Money (Pink Floyd)
  4. Black Friday (Steely Dan)
  5. Tailspin (The Jayhawks)
  6. I Was in the House When the House Burned Down (Warren Zevon)
  7. Everything Must Go (Steely Dan)
  8. Once in a Lifetime (Talking Heads)
  9. Scratch (Morphine)
  10. Your Gold Teeth II (Steely Dan)

Yeah, it’s a little Steely Dan-heavy.  Whatever.  I like Steely Dan.
