'Talk Talk': A Longwinded Soundtrack for a Filibuster

03/07/2013 10:16 am ET | Updated May 07, 2013

As Clare Boothe Luce once noted, "They say that women talk too much. If you have worked in Congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men." Here then is a longwinded filibuster soundtrack for Rand Paul and all those who were part of the filibuster of John Brennan. For me, anything that causes Marco Rubio to namecheck Wiz Khalifa and Jay-Z can't be all wrong. And because the people must speak, I've included lots of talky selections from the good people who follow me at www.twitter.com/Wildaboutmusic. As always, please vote with you comments and add your own chatty tunes below.
