The Killers: Somebody Told Me (Mitt Romney Likes This Song!)

Almost fell of my desk chair when I saw this list of Mitt Romney’s favorite songs: included are two singles from fellow LDS-ers The Killers. Mitt is definitely not as square as people think. I actually must concur with Romney, Somebody Told Me is a great song; very prophetic. It pre-dates the annoying I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry by 4 years. And unlike Perry it does not take a seductive/surgery-pop take on promiscuity and bi-swinging, instead, the song is dark and desperate. It gets modern contemporary American culture right: lonely, searching, and vampiristic. They don’t make it sound enticing. These guys tell the truth.

Here is the rest of Mitt's list:

“I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” by The Soggy Bottom Boys
“Read my Mind” by The Killers
“December, 1963 [Oh, What a Night]" by Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons
“Ring of Fire”
“Somebody Told Me” by the Killers
“The MTA (The Boston Subway Song)” by The Kingston Trio
“Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys
“Desperado” by Clint Black
“Crying” by Roy Orbison
“Only You” by Commodores
“Runaway” by Del Shannon
“It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw
“As Good as I Once Was” by Toby Keith
“Born Free” by Kid Rock
“Over the Rainbow” by Willie Nelson
“In Dreams” by Roy Orbison
“Somebody Like You” by Keith Urban
“All-American Girl” by Carrie Underwood
