Listen to Gov. Chris Christie's July 4th Playlist

Niraj Chokshi

New Jersey Governor and Bruce Springsteen fanatic Chris Christie has a playlist to get you in the patriotic mood this July 4th.

The Republican rising star, who may or may not be running for president in 2016, assembled the 14-song list on the social music service Spotify. The mix is heavy on Springsteen (Christie's other playlist is simply titled "The Boss") and it's, perhaps unsurprisngly, mostly conventional. Only three of the songs, all tacked onto the end, are relatively new with the rest representing the best of the 80's, 90's and early 2000's.

Here's the full playlist (Spotify users can listen to it below):


  1. Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen
  2. Under the Boardwalk - The Drifters
  3. Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
  4. The Fever - Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes
  5. Jersey Girl (Live) - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
  6. Where the Streets Have No Name - U2
  7. Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

  10. Darkness on the Edge of Town - Bruce Springsteen
  11. Summer Wind - Frank Sinatra
