Revolution Sounds Like A…Pop Song

Last night Wael Ghonim took to his Twitter to profess his appreciation for the Miley Cyrus’ The Climb as a source of inspiration. Worried about his taste and understanding of American Pop music I quickly made a few suggestions of my own: Nas, Johnny Cash, Nelly Furtado, and even Kelly Clarkson (what’s more inspirational AND Poppy than America’s first televised musical idol?)

Seeing that the Google exec. was un-moved by my suggestions I decided to call in the big guns, so I turned to the Bloggers behind New Yorker favorite Pretty Much Amazing and FHM favorite Pigeons and Planes to help Mr. Ghonim discover the wide array of inspirational music the American pop scene has to offer.

Though the matter remains unresolved, we did learn one very important thing, all that was missing in Tahrir Square was an exuberant flash mob set to the likes of Bob Dylan, the King of Pop, MTV’s first Icon Janet Jackson, Murs, The Roots, Nas, The Rolling Stones, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, Eminem, and John Legend:
