For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, August 20, 2010

Have a cup of coffee this morning? Guess which country drinks the most coffee on a per person basis. If that’s not enough to wake you up, perhaps a rap song about Elizabeth Warren will help. We covered both of these stories this morning. And also: Hardship withdrawals are on the rise, American Airlines slapped with a huge fine, Transocean says BP is holding back rig data, Smucker’s rolls out new products, and the week’s news in a [60-second poem](). These are the songs we played:

  • Milton Road (My Skull With Flowers mix by Kim Hiorthoy) — Mice ParadeBuy
  • Cornflake Girl — Tori AmosBuy
  • F! re (Put It in the Air) — The KnuxBuy
  • Gimme Shelter — International Yoyo OrchestraBuy
