NPR reporters across the country are sending in their lists of ironic music choices at election parties. I like the dispatches from Tennessee best: NPR's Scott Horsley writes from the Republican festivities:
The band at the Bob Corker party just got done playing Wild Cherry's "Play that Funky Music White Boy." Maybe not the best choice in a race tainted by racial issues. Or maybe it was.
And NPR's Audie Cornish responds from the party for Democrat Harold Ford:
The opening band here has kicked off with what they described as contemporary R&B classics: First, Prince's "1999," then the "Humpty Hump" from the Digital Underground, followed by Nelly's "Hot In Herre (So Take Off All Your Clothes)." No sign of anyone following such commands.
