Well, we kind of knew things were headed this way, didn’t we? The sequester is here, and it’s hard to tell how long it’ll last. So we thought we’d create a playlist to tide you over — and all the picks were sent to us by Marketplace listeners. Enjoy!

*Note: Older songs suggested — including “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin, “On the Border” by The Eagles and “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds” by The Beatles — were unavailable on Spotify.
