Payroll tax cut bill in danger; supermarket Hanukkah fail: Soundtrack of the day

Today’s headlines have us musically inspired. What songs would you pair with the news of the day?

We’ve been following the payroll tax cut bill story with our iPods close at hand. It’s inspired us to cue up Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen and AC/DC. Today, with the House’s defeat of the bipartisan Senate agreement, we’re listening to the infectious baseline of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust.”

A Hanukkah display fail at the Foggy Bottom Whole Foods has us listening to this hilarious parking lot parody.

Our soundtrack is below. Add your song picks in the comments. Bonus points for suggesting songs for other headlines.
