Something tells me this election night won't be near as fun as 2008, if for no other reason than I won't be chowing on oxtails with the great folks at Pritchard's in Lake Worth.
Yes, everything goes a wee bit better with music. Even make-you-crazy things like elections. The band on the Titanic didn't keep on for nothing, yeah?
Top of my head here, but did have to edit a bit since most of my playlists end up sprawling things that only I can see as relating to the theme. It may get updated as the day goes on...
I would love it if those of you out there in the ether would add your own tunes in the comments.
