What Music Do Vice Presidential Candidates Joe Biden and Paul Ryan Like?
Foreign policy. Taxes. Unemployment. Medicare. We’ve heard alot about where VP Joe Biden and VP candidate Paul Ryan stand on these important issues. They certainly don’t agree on much. Just for fun, let’s take a look at their differences on a much lighter topic. What kind of music do they like listening to?
As a disc jockey, it pretty much goes without saying that I’m curious about what music people like. So when I saw an article in People that looked at the musical tastes of Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan, I was curious if they both liked the same music. At least from the article, it looks like their taste in music is as different as their political views. Biden favors Ray Charles, Bruce Springsteen and Tina Turner. Ryan likes AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Creed. Biden likes to work out to “Born to Run,” and blasts Tina Turner’s “Simply the Best” in the car, when he’s allowed to drive. After all, he’s the Vice President! He wishes he could be in the band The Chieftains but acknowledges he doesn’t have much musical talent. Ryan gets pumped up to Creed’s “Higher” and calls “It’s a Long Way to the Top” his favorite song on the campaign trail. What band would he love to join? Led Zeppelin, his favorite band. Ryan says the one thing that might surprise people is having Hannah Montana on his IPod. It’s because his ten year old daughter Liz is a fan. Now you know!
