The Howie Carr Radio Network Shares the Songs that Stir Their Souls

Behold, the songs that stir the souls of our in-studio talent, behind-the-scenes crew, and sales department reps.

The Internet is exploding with a new viral trend, and we had to have in on it.

Last month, musician Nick Worrall invited X (formerly known as Twitter) users to share a list of songs that provide the best insight into their personality, hopes, dreams, and ambitions. Worrall put it, provide the songs that show others “what stirs your soul.”

What exactly does it mean to “stir” one’s “soul?” No idea.

On Wednesday, Politico released responses to the prompt from a very specific sliver of music listeners: GOP presidential candidates (sans everyone’s favorite president). Of course, some of the selections were politically predictableβ€”take the Springsteen chart at the top of Chris Christie’s list or the girl-power anthems from Nikki Haley’sβ€”but others raised the Howie Carr crew’s eyebrows. Who knew Vivek Ramaswamy was so into Imagine Dragons? And who knew Cornel West was campaigning for president?

Every member of the Howie Carr Radio Network felt strongly that he or she has a better taste in soul-stirring music than a washed-up governor vying for the White House.

Behold, the songs that stir the souls of our in-studio talent, behind-the-scenes crew, and sales department reps.
