Playlist: The sound of Simon
Posted by Chau Tu
For Marketplace, Friday, September 16, 2011
Does advertising corrupt pop music? We heard about Paul Simon’s influence. Carnegie-Mellon plans on opening a Rwanda campus next year. Plastic harvested from the giant patch of trash floating in the Pacific Ocean has begun finding its way into recycled products. Do consumer surveys have any predictive value for the future of our economy? Europe may look to the Federal Reserve for U.S. dollars. We heard from a 60-something on giving up on the job search. And we had the weekly wrap as well as small talk from the Dinner Party Download crew. Here are the songs we played:
- All I Want – LCD SoundsystemBuy
- Kansai – Ra Ra RiotBuy
- Ocean City Girl – IvyBuy
- Wrapped in Plastic – Her Space HolidayBuy
- Kodachrome – Paul SimonBuy
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
