Playlist: Halloween snowstorm, the not-so-super super committee

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Monday, October 31, 2011

It's Halloween, but after a surprise snowstorm and subsequent power outages, some on the East Coast may have to cancel holiday festivities tonight. Kodak is selling off its digital camera patents. MF Global may go bankrupt, while Nabors oil company gives its outgoing CEO a $100 million severance package. Commentator Chris Roberson explained why he thinks the super committee is missing the 'super' part. And Napa has become known for welcoming migrant workers. Here are the songs we played:

  • Paper Planes (DFA remix) - M.I.A.Buy
  • Call It What You Want - Foster the PeopleBuy
  • Everything Hits At Once - SpoonBuy
  • Hold On - NicolayBuy
  • (Don't Let Them) Cool Off - Peter Bjorn & JohnBuy
