After much joking about Mark Sanford’s country song, “Crying in Argentina,” it occurred to me, I should make ol Mark a special playlist for this special time– I guess it’s a playlist to listen to while hiking the Appalachian Trail all the way to Argentina.
First up, Weezer’s “Island in the Sun“. Included for the line “We’ll run away together, we’ll spend some time forever, we’ll never feel bad anymore.” (It wouldn’t let me embed the video, but it’s directed by Spike Jonze and pretty cool)
Next, another one I can’t embed: Justin Timberlake’s Senorita. “Senorita, I feel for you, you deal with things that you don’t have to.” That one could practically BE one of Sanford’s emails.
And speaking of the emails, since Sanford says “there is something wonderful about listening to country music playing in the cab, air conditioner running, the hum of a huge diesel engine in the background”, I give you “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy”:
Then Janet’s “Escapade.” Think by ditching the governor’s office for a week he was trying to save his troubles for another day?
Think the ladies in Argentina are like the ladies in Spain? “Can’t refuse it.”
And what’s acting like an idiot teenager in love rather than a governor with a wife and kids without a lil Tiffany?
And finally, Madonna, “Holiday.” “It would be so nice” if you could just get away with disappearing from your elected office for a week, wouldn’t it?
Got any additions to make to the list?

It occurs to me that I should have included “Leaving On a Jet Plane.”
Oh, yes. That’s perfect!
