Salute to the Blue States, Vol. 1

Wow. I mean wow! It really was a Super Tuesday yesterday. It's the first time I've ever gotten up on the Wednesday after election day with an extra spring in my step. In honor of the occasion, I've put together the first of two Blue State compilations. As I write this, the nation still awaits confirmation in North Carolina (leaning slightly to Obama) and Missouri (leaning slightly toward McCain). Today's compilation will only feature the staunchly progressive North East states. To be sure, not all of these songs show the states in the best light, but I can vouch for the superb-ness of each song. Also, I did not take the time to sequence the compilation, but rather I decided to put the states in order of their loyalty to Obama (ie: 67% of Vermonters voted for Barack so Vermont leads things off, while Virginia's 52% has them bringing up the rear). Enjoy!
