THE BEATLES’ “Hack in the U.S.S.R.”

“Vlad to the Bone / Putin’ on the Ritz (medley)”

“Debbie in a Blue Dress”

So many songs, it seems, could have made the Democratic Convention playlist so far to aptly reflect the headlines and headliners of the week in Philly.

“He Ain’t Heavy (He’s My Bernie)”

“Michelle (Her Spell)”

“Won’t You Carry Me, Hill? (Wedding Bill Blues)”

Yes, if the pundits had been DJ’ing the DNC — which has ranged from stirring political passion to silly, over-the-top mocking — you might hear far more than “Fight Song” and Bono piping into the Wells Fargo Center.

“Purple Kaine”

“Ms. Albright-side”

“Hey Joe (Where You Going With That Trump in Your Hand?)”

Instead of spinning tunes, though, we have the spin of toons this week.

Here is how some of America’s top editorial cartoonists are painting the DNC convention:
