>JOE BIDEN

Tina Turner

Ray Charles

Bruce Springsteen

SONG THAT’S ALWAYS IN MY HEAD

Ray Charles’s “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” I remember when it came out; it was my first year of college.

WORKOUT SONG

“Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen.

BAND I WISH I COULD BE IN

The Chieftains. And [I would] sing “Shenandoah” if I had any musical talent!

SONG THAT REMINDS ME OF HOME

“When Irish Eyes Are Smiling.” I think of my mother.

FAVORITE SONG ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing.”

SONG I BLAST IN THE CAR

“Simply the Best” by Tina Turner. But I can’t drive anymore [because I’m Vice President]!

PAUL RYAN

Frank Sinatra

Hannah Montana

Led Zeppelin

BAND I WISH I COULD BE IN

Led Zeppelin is my favorite band. But out of respect I could never imagine joining their ranks.

MY WEDDING SONG

“The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra.

FAVORITE SONG ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

AC/DC’s “It’s a Long Way to the Top.”

SONG THAT REMINDS ME OF HOME

At Wisconsin Badgers [college] football games in Madison, they start every fourth quarter with House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” so [that song] brings me back to Wisconsin.

GET-PUMPED SONG

“Higher” by Creed.

BIGGEST SURPRISE ON MY IPOD

Because of my [10-year-old] daughter Liz, I have a Hannah Montana playlist!
