As protests continue in the Middle East, eyes are turning to Saudi Arabia, with fears over its oil. Other countries in the area are trying to root out the corruption that had infiltrated their past governments for so long. Commentator Richard Reich talked about a solution to Social Security. High-end spending is up again here in the U.S. And Russia is beginning to produce more prescription drugs domestically. Here are the songs we played:

- Wired for Light – School of Seven BellsBuy
- Pockets – Four TetBuy
