CNET News Video: Political party playlists

1:48 /

We know the Democrats and Republicans are split over policy issues, but does their musical taste fall down party lines too? And what kind of gadgets did they bring to the conventions to listen to their music? CNET reporter Kara Tsuboi finds out.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> The Democrats had Sheryl Crow rock out at their Convention. The Republicans, Christian singer Rachael Lampa. That alone should tell you there are major differences in party playlists. >> Noticed a lot of classical music, jazz, probably more oldies stuff -- oldies but goodies. >> I have just a compilation of R&B -- of Rock -- some classical. >> I am listening to the Audacity of Hope -- Barrack Obama -- I read his book but I like to listen to his voice. >> It's kind of like [inaudible] to get me pumped up. I have Marvin Gaye, ya know, just kind of gettin' the feel of the convention. >> And what gets the Republicans pumped up? [background yelling] >> My family, we listen to a lot of Christian Rock, that's our preference. We've got four children and we enjoy that music. >> I listen to Christian music and I like Country music. >> I, personally, like patriotic, I'm more traditionalist, so, the Rock and that stuff doesn't, but -- I think if you can find something with a good theme that fits that tends to work for a lot of folks. >> What kind of music do you listen to, to get fired up here at the Convention? >> I love Country music. >> Any artist in particular? >> Give me a little Kenney Chesney any day of the week. I'm still a Garth Brooks fan, I love Garth, but give me Kenney. >> The biggest surprise in my informal survey is how few Delegates from either party even brought MP3 players. Whether it's the iPod, the Zune, or even phones that play music. >> My girls have the iPods in the family and they don't share 'em very often, so. >> [laughing] I'm 72 years old I can hardly work my camera and my [laughing] internet. >> Not listening to any tunes while I'm out, I'm listening to speeches. >> In Saint Paul, Minnesota I'm Kara Tsuboi, www.cnet.com. ^m00:01:45 [ Music ]
