Playlist: Yahoo! Is a deal coming?

Posted by Daryl Paranada

For Marketplace Morning Report, Thursday, October 14, 2010

Word is that a few private equity firms are mulling over a deal to buy out Yahoo. Who might buy the number two search engine and why? We tell you. We also tell you how young people are doing in this tough economy. In the U.K., British investors are protesting political donations made by Rupert Murdoch, a sale of the Liverpool football team has been blocked, and men's hats are coming back in fashion in England again. Hopping over to Vienna, OPEC ministers are meeting to set production targets for the winter. IBack home, we look at how the U.S. can avoid Japan's lost decade -- something Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke is pondering. And finally, we go inside The Business Council to see what happens when you get 150 of the country's top CEOs in the same room. Here are the songs we played:

  • You're So Desirable (Sunday People) -- Billie HolidayBuy
  • Strawberry Street -- Lili HaydnBuy
  • Wonderwall -- OasisBuy
  • Sleep On it Tonight -- MorcheebaBuy
  • Electric Worms -- Beastie BoysBuy
