The Presidents Day Playlist

In honor of Presidents Day, we've thought of classic rock songs that might be good theme songs for some of our nations' leaders.

George Washington - 'Revolution' - The Beatles

 

James Madison - 'Burning Down The House' . The White House caught on fire during his term.

 

Martin Van (Halen) Buren - 'Jump!' - Van Halen 

 

William Henry Harrison - 'A Fool in the Rain' - Led Zeppelin. Contracted pneumonia 30 days after delivering his acceptance speech in the pouring rain.

 

Abraham Lincoln - 'Rockin' in the Free World' - Neil Young

 

Ulysses S. Grant - 'One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer' - George Thorogood . Ulysses was known to be quite the drinker.

 

Franklin Delano Roosevelt - 'I Love Rock N Roll' -  Joan Jett . FDR is on the dime you put in the jukebox baby.

 

Warren Harding - 'You Better Bet' - The Who . Harding once lost an entire set of White House China a poker game. He was quite the bettor/gambler.

 

JFK - 'Space Oddity' - David Bowie

 

Richard Nixon - China Girl 

 

Gerald Ford - 'Free Fallin' - Tom Petty . Chevy Chases' SNL pratfalls while depicting Gerald Ford were must see TV.
