Track of the Day: 'Big Time'

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

A reader serves up some classic stop-motion from the ‘80s:

I know Governor Christie is leaving the race, but I thought he deserved a song anyway. This one is completely the fault of The Atlantic, since Molly’s recent article, “The Triumphant Return of Chis Christie,” contained the phrase “the big man (this is a description of his personality, not his size).” A light bulb went on. With his out-sized gestures, booming voice and (some would say) big mouth, only one song could do him justice (and sorry, it’s not Springsteen): Peter Gabriel's “Big Time” from his mega album So.

What would be an apt song for Rubio right now? Kasich? Carson? Let us know if anything springs to mind.
