Consider my vote pandered to on this one!
Pete Buttigieg is the charismatic Mayor of South Bend, Indiana and he’s been making waves in the political world lately and was eyeing a full run for President of the United States of the America.
On Sunday April 14th, he made his plans to campaign officially public in South Bend, and ahead of that his campaign released a playlist on Spotify and made sure their tunes were going to be well chosen and reflect the right type of target demographic in its launch.
And after the recent Twitter dust-up when someone unearthed a ridiculously stretched out-of-context mention from Buttigieg that he’s a fan of “Tweezer Reprise,” it’s not a major surprise for me to see that our favorite four-some from Vermont, Phish, gets a nod with the official studio version of “Tweezer – Reprise” from A Picture of Nectar.
Sometimes a guy need to pick up a six pack on a Sunday. Also thank you for appreciating Tweezer Reprise.

Going after Bernie’s home base! And awww come on, they couldn’t pick a LIVE version?! And why couldn’t it come BEFORE Carly Rae Jepsen?!
Sure enough, at the event announcing his candidacy, “Tweezer Reprise” made an appearance.

Also on the playlist are LIVE faves like Sharon Jones (RIP) & The Dap-Kings, Florence + the Machine, Beck, and Portugal. The Man, and in a perfect nod to his sexuality and being the first ever official candidate for President to be an out and proud gay man, there is also David Bowie and George Michael on the playlist.
Time to pump up the Butti-jams, people.
