Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - Bad Reputation (pov Rahm)

Rahm Emanuel. A man, a legend.

I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
I've never been afraid of any deviation
And I don't really care if ya think I'm strange
I ain't gonna change
And I'm never gonna care 'bout my bad reputation

Oh no, not me
Oh no, not me

An' I don't give a damn 'bout my reputation
The world's in trouble, there's no communication
And everyone can say what they want to say
It never gets better anyway
So why should I care 'bout a bad reputation anyway

Goodnight Nurse - Milkshake (pov Rahm)

Clinton, Obama... Everybody wants him for themselves.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, it's better than yours
Damn right it's better than yours
I could teach you but I have to charge

Miley Cyrus - Can't Be Tamed (pov Rahm)

No matter who it is in the end, they'll have to understand that a Rahm can be won, but a Rahm can't be tamed, can't be changed, and can't be blamed. Well, he can be blamed, but like you'd blame an half-wild pitbull mutt bred in an insalubre puppy mill.

For those who don't know me, I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way, yep, 24 hours a day
'Cause I'm hot like that
Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I'm under inspection
I always get a ten, 'cause I'm built like that

I go through guys like money flying out the hands
They try to change me but they realize they can't
And every tomorrow is a day I never plan
If you're gonna be my man, understand

I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't, can't
I can't, can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, I can't be
I can't be tamed

Gene - The Police Will Never Find You (pov Rahm)

Democrats are happy to learn that there will be a powerful enforcer in the White House, one who knows how to improvise a lethal weapon out of most household articles, one who's animated by a healthy desire to make up for the lost years.

Here's a note and a forecast
Because you hurt me too much
Those kneecaps look tender
Is a hammer enough
You won't forget me in a rush

I've been down for too long
But is power so wrong?
The balance is slowly shifting
I know where you belong
Soon you'll be gone
The police will never find you

I've been under too long
But my intent is strong
The balance is slowly moving
I know where you reside
I know where to hide
The police will never find you

Tears For Fears - Shout (Rahm vs. Progressive Caucus)

Though after a few months some feel like the enforcement is mostly aimed at the most progressive elements of the party and the typical Obama voters...

Shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without
Come on, I'm talking to you, come on
Shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without
Come on, I'm talking to you, come on

In violent times, you shouldn't have to sell your soul
In black and white, they really really ought to know
Those one track minds that took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye, you shouldn't have to jump for joy
You shouldn't have to
Shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without
Come on, I'm talking to you, come on

They gave you life, and in return you gave them hell
As cold as ice, I hope we live to tell the tale
I hope we live to tell the tale

Björk - Army Of Me (Rahm vs Washington)

Republicans, Democrats, Eric Massa, hapless staffers... No matter who it comes from, whinging and stalling always elicit more than a simple stern response.

Stand up
You've got to manage
I won't sympathize

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me

You're alright
There's nothing wrong
Self-sufficiency please!
And get to work

Miss Kittin and The Hacker (pov Rahm's staff)

"He treats us like Lloyd."

I just wanna be good
I don't wanna be rude
Take off your attitude
It's an emotional interlude

Gimme love food
It's all good

Please won't you be
More delicate with me
Please can you handle me
More carefully
Please can you be...
(More carefully)

I just wanna be good
I don't wanna be rude

We all feel mute
Under our suit
Let me start, let me debute
Inner senses interlude

Pet Shop Boys - Vulnerable (pov Rahm)

What people don't know is that there's a soft side to Rahm Emanuel... It's about the size of a nickel, but it's there, and it hurts sometimes. Mostly he misses his wife and kids.

I know the assumption is that I'm tough
With all my anger, that's fair enough
Even with friends I have to compete
And try being mean when you walk down the street
It's not easy, by the by
Just surviving in the public eye

You may think I'm strong and I can do no wrong but I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you
I may be hard to take but you can call me fake 'cause I'm vulnerable
So vulnerable without you

You know I can't ever bear to seem weak
Or have any doubts, that's just my technique
I put in the hours, at least I don't shirk
A little bravado does much of the work
I am no-one's stepping stone
But I couldn't live life in private, alone

Röyksopp ft. Robyn - The Girl and The Robot (Amy)

And even though she's a veteran political wife by now, Amy misses her husband too. She's never seen so little of him.

I go mental every time you leave for work
You never seem to know when to stop
I never know when you'll return
I'm in love with a robot

In the night I call you up and
Wanna know when you're coming home
Don't deny me call me back
I'm so alone

In the night I wait up for you
Even though you don't want me to
Go to bed leave the lights on
What's the use

Alice in Videoland - Going Down (pov Rahm)

When the approval rates plummet and everybody blames him, Rahm offers to step down. On those occasions, Obama always replies that he'll have Rahm as long as Rahm will want to stay. Rahm doesn't know whether it means that he still have the boss's favor, or that Obama simply wants to leave the decision to him. He's been given the boot before, this time he needs to go before he's told to.

I'm going down
Can't pretend, it's gonna end
It's all around
Takes my soul beyond control
I'm going down

I got lost, I got refused
I can't trust since I've been used
Should have felt it from the start
But I melted with my heart

So I stayed, defied the ache
And I paid for your mistakes
I'll retire with the facts I've learned:
My desire never let me turn

Ladytron - Predict the Day (pov Rahm)

He watches, he makes plans, waits for an opening somewhere else.

Predict the day you wanted to get away
A second chance is calling for you
Predict the day you wanted to get away
No second chance is calling for you

Predict the day you sentence your enemies
Don't look away they're coming for you
Predict the day you're bathing in victory
A second chance had fallen for you

Tricky - Au Revoir Emmanuelle (pov everybody)

Beltway hack, self-hating Jew, zionist agent, sociopath, compromised amoral deal-maker, everybody's got an opinion about Rahm Emanuel. Some will be happy to see him leave, and some will miss that charming political strumpet more than words can say.

Emmanuelle likes intellectuals and manuals
Emmanuelle nods
Once a year, she’ll take it annual
Emmanuelle, Emmmanuelle

Emmanuelle, Emmmanuelle, Emmanuelle goodbye
Emmanuelle, Emmmanuelle, Emmanuelle goodbye

Star-spangled Emmanuelle
Pays lip service to Uncle Samuel
Emmanuelle can eat you up
Quicker than you can say cannibal
