Mitt Romney's campaign trail playlist unveiled

New York , Sat, 10 Mar 2012 ANI

New York, Mar 10 (ANI): Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney revealed Friday on Facebook what songs he listens to on campaign trail.


Besides a number of oldies including The Beach Boys' 'Good Vibrations', Johnny Cash's 'Ring of Fire' and Roy Orbison's 'In Dreams', there were several country and recent Top-40 selections, including songs by Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and two numbers by The Killers.


Romney also hit up his Michigan and Bay State roots with 'The MTA (The Boston Subway Song)' by The Kingston Trio and Detroit-born Kid Rock's 'Born Free' a constant presence at Romney rallies.


The songs were made public through Spotify, a free online music sharing program.


Team Mitt insists that the White House hopeful chose the songs by himself, but Cathi Wilson, an independent musical and political communications researcher, expressed doubt.


"He doesn't eat, drink or breathe without input from his handlers," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.


She added that his musical choices were "a little all over the map, which means he might be trying to hit several demographics."


Wilson also noted that Romney's song selection was emotional, with titles like 'Crying', 'As Good As I once Was', 'A Man of Constant Sorrow' and 'Desperado'.


She said that Romney could be trying to show his sensitive side.


"He doesn't come across as a very emotional person. The campaign might be trying to soften his image and making it appear that he's an emotional kinda guy. He's not just a machine," she said.


Last month, President Obama published his first Spotify list, which included songs by No Doubt, Wilco, Jennifer Hudson, James Taylor, U2 and Al Green, to name a few.


Here are the songs on Romney's playlist, "On the Road":
