It’s time for another of NewsFeed’s once-a-week playlists for the music of the day’s news. This week we celebrate the changing of the seasons, and a Delaware Senate candidate gets us on the dance floor.

For Wall Street foe Elizabeth Warren, who was named an adviser for the new consumer financial protection agency: UB40, “Watchdogs”

If there’s one thing that strikes fear in the hearts of big banks, its white reggae.

For Delaware Republican Christine O’Donnell, whose interesting views on the intersection of religion and sexuality were revealed last week: Madonna, “Like A Prayer”

We were considering using a song by The Divinyls, but we decided that would be in bad taste.

For Ben Affleck, whose film The Town won the box office this weekend with his largest opening since Daredevil: The Dropkick Murphys, “Shipping Up To Boston”

Enjoy it now, because by the time this wave of Boston tough-guy films peters out you’re going to be sick to hell of this song.

For Ayesha Panesar, who happened to win the America’s Most Perfect Teen beauty pagent, despite being Welsh:

Learn from Britney, Ayesha: Being ‘perfect’ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!

For the Sun, which on Thursday will cross the celestial equator and officially launch us into fall: The Kinks, “Autumn Almanac”

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!
