IPODS OF THE FIRST COUPLES

Presidential media adviser Mark McKinnon revealed in 2005 that George W. Bush enjoys listening to his iPod (dubbed "iPod One") while mountain biking around his Texas ranch. His favorite songs were "(You're So Square) Baby, I Don't Care" by Joni Mitchell; "Brown-Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison; "Say It Ain't So" by The Thrills; "Centerfield" by John Fogerty; "Circle Back" by John Hiatt; and "My Sharona" by The Knack. McKinnon stressed that "no one should psychoanalyze the song selection--it's music to get over the next hill." Laura Bush confessed that she preferred Tina Turner and Dolly Parton on her iPod, and said she particularly enjoyed listening to Parton's epic rendition of "Stairway to Heaven."

In May 2006, Hillary Clinton said her iPod featured a "smorgasbord" of '60s and '70s tunes, including Aretha Franklin's "Respect," the Beatles' "Hey Jude," and "Take It to the Limit" by the Eagles.
