Time to play political DJ: 5 Talking Heads songs Charlie Crist should have used instead of ‘Road to Nowhere’

in Statewide by

Check out the Broward New Times list of songs that would have made for better audio backdrops for Crist’s campaign while staying on message. Their top choice:

1. “Warning Sign”

Key lyrics: “Warning sign, warning sign/ I see it but I pay no mind/ Hear my voice, hear my voice/ It’s saying something and I hope you’re concentrating/ I’ve got money now, I’ve got money now/ C’mon baby, c’mon baby.”

This is the obvious winner. Intense, perverse bass line that smacks like Rubio’s waffling about balancing the Florida budget by not accepting stimulus funds, and yet accepting stimulous funds. It’s a an obvious “hear me for what I have to say and don’t look to party affiliation” sort of lyric as well.
