Welcome to Play favorites. Every Monday, Click Track asks an interesting Washingtonian about what they’re listening to. This week we spoke with D.C. Council member Tommy Wells , whose Ward 6 district includes the Atlas District, Capitol Hill and Southwest Waterfront neighborhoods. Wells's tastes run the gamut from classic rock to jazz: “On weekends, I have been listening to the Grateful Dead... in the evenings when we entertain I have been playing Norah Jones and Diana Krall.”

His playlist for work — a compilation of “songs from my youth,” he says — follows.


Simon and Garfunkel, "The Boxer

Blue Oyster Cult, "Don't Fear The Reaper"

ZZ Top, "La Grange

Cat Stevens, "Peace Train”

The Who, "Pinball Wizard"

Carly Simon, "You're So Vain"

Eddie Rabbit, "Suspicions"

Jonathan Edwards, "Sunshine (Go Away Today)"

Golden Earring, "Radar Love"

The Doors, "Riders on the Storm"

Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Who'll Stop The Rain"

The Monkees, "Words"
