Suggested Gavel to Gavel Playlist for the Next Floor Session of the Alaska Legislature

Last night’s acrimonious house floor session left little hope of a budget deal between the two houses of Alaska’s Legislature. Fortunately, music heals all! Here’s a playlist—to be piped in on Gavel to Gavel—to help the House and the Senate come together to avert a government shutdown on July 1.

Come Together (The Beatles)

Let’s Stay Together (Al Green)

Baby Come Back (Player)

I Won’t Give Up (Jason Mraz)

Two of Us (The Beatles)

Can’t We Talk it Over in Bed (Olivia Newton John)

In Your Eyes (Peter Gabriel—for this one, the House or Senate stands outside the chamber of the other body with a giant boom box over its head).

I Want You Back (The Jackson 5)

We Can Work it Out (The Beatles)

Love the Way You Lie (Eminem feat. Rihanna)

Right Here Waiting (Richard Marx)

Reunited (Peaches & Herb)

With or Without You (U2)

Together Forever (Rick Astley)

We Don’t Talk Anymore (Charlie Puth/Selena Gomez)

We Are Family (Sister Sledge)

Wrecking Ball (Miley Cyrus)

Trainwreck (Demi Lovato)

We Belong Together (Mariah Carey)

We Are Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together (Taylor Swift—on second thought, maybe this one isn’t such a good idea).
