Who Chose Those Campaign Songs?

Mitt Romney used "A Little Less Conversation" and "Don't Stop Believing." Hillary Clinton's campaign theme was a Celine Dion song, chosen by her supporters. Barack Obama uses U2 and Curtis Mayfield at his rallies. John McCain's campaign plays "Johnny B. Goode" and an Abba song.

Today on KMOX, I talked with Carl Wiser of Songfacts.com, who has compiled a list of the song the various candidates have used during the campaign, along with stories about who makes the choices and why.

Listen.
