The Devil Wears Prada vs. Shrek vs. Runaway Bride

Probably, you've all heard by now, if not watch the most important event of this presidential campaign so far:

Here is a list of the potential campaign songs:

  • City of Blinding Lights - U2
  • Suddenly I See - KT Tunstall
  • I’m a Believer - Smash Mouth
  • Get Ready - The Temptations
  • Ready to Run - Dixie Chicks
  • Rock This Country! - Shania Twain
  • Beautiful Day - U2
  • Right Here, Right Now - Jesus Jones
  • I’ll Take You There - The Staple Singers

You can listen to the songs and vote here.

Now, what I've noticed right away was that a lot of these songs were already used on movie soundtracks which makes them good campaign songs, I suppose.

Most noticeably, two songs from "The Devil Wears Prada" soundtrack made the cut: U2's "City of Blinding Lights" and KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" (which is my favourite). Of course both songs have also been used on other soundtracks.

Some of the other songs might also be familiar to you from the movie theater. From "Shrek" there is the Smash Mouth's version of "I'm a Believer" and from "Runaway Bride" you'll remember the Dixie Chicks' "Ready to Run."

Finally for us Nevada Caucus goers there is the Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There" from the "Casino" soundtrack.

As you can see this choice is more important than you think as you'll be either reminded of "The Devil Wears Prada," "Shrek," "Runaway Bride," or "Casino" everytime there's a Hillary event.

Vote here.
