What songs would you pair with today’s top headlines?
The biggest news today is arguably the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who died Saturday at 69. Another prominent leader, Vaclav Havel, a playwright and former Czech president, also died over the past weekend.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) appeared on “Meet the Press” Sunday, explaining that he and other members of the House oppose the payroll tax cut extension approved by the Senate (and supported by the White House).
We’ve included some suggestions below. And since Bruce Springsteen is writing for The Washington Post Tuesday on America, all of our picks are by the The Boss.
