Presidential iPod Follow-Up

I was over at The Heretik, preparing my selections for President Bush's iPod, when I realized I had entirely too many (some of them may be more appropriate for America's iPod, but hey, L'etat, c'est lui). So I will post the complete list here, and attempt to whittle down to a Top Ten for there and Agitprop's Presidential iPod Commission.

This is still not an absolutely complete list - some people already picked some of my selections, and some of them were perhaps too obscure to recognize - but it's pretty close. Here it is, in all its tedious alphabetical glory (I so totally suck at editing...):

Wonderful! I love them all, but Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick", is a definite selection for his iPod.

You forgot XTC's President Kill.... unless someone else noted it. I'll have to follow that link.

According to the Guardian, Bush has The Knack but no Big Star or Shoes on his iPod. Typical.

Blogwhoring makes me feel so dirty.... and it's making me thirsty.
