Music and Politics: Obama and McCain reveal top 10 tunes

Blender magazine has published John McCain's and Barack Obama's favorite songs lists. Many of you have probably seen this already; I know it's not exactly "news" at this point, but I just recently ran into it. At first I thought this might be a joke. "Dancing Queen," John? Seriously?

1. Fugees - 'Ready Or Not'
2. Marvin Gaye - 'What's Going On'
3. Bruce Springsteen - 'I'm On Fire'
4. The Rolling Stones - 'Gimme Shelter'
5. Nina Simone - 'Sinnerman'
6. Kanye West - 'Touch The Sky'
7. Frank Sinatra - 'You'd Be So Easy To Love'
8. Aretha Franklin - 'Think'
9. U2 - 'City of Blinding Lights'
10. - 'Yes We Can'
