For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, July 27, 2010

D.C. is buzzing with regulators poking through financial reform to sift through loopholes. Meanwhile, the SEC is rewarding those who report bank wrongdoing with up to 30 percent of whatever amount of money they help recover. Kind of makes you want to go find some scandal to uncover. We did the next best thing, and played some Explosions in the Sky, OK Go and Mark Knopfler. Tied up with Cruel Summer, because we’re showing investment criminals no mercy.

  • First Breath After Coma — Explosions In The Sky Buy
  • Cruel Summer — Bananarama Buy
  • Sometimes — James Buy
  • Here It Goes Again — OK Go Buy
  • Boom, Like That — Mark Knopfler Buy
