(Newser) – Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky's wedding playlist has a boomer slant so strong that it suggests the thirtysomethings like the same music as their parents—or that someone's pulling TMZ's leg. Selections include hits by Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Sam Cooke, and Michael Jackson. And they'd better be pretty good renditions—the band's costing $40,000, according to a painfully detailed breakdown by Politics Daily, which puts the total tab in the neighborhood of $2 million. Nice neighborhood!

More selections from the playlist:

  • The Turtles, "Happy Together"
  • Dusty Springfield, "Son of a Preacher Man"
  • Michael Jackson, "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough"
  • Ike and Tina Turner, "Proud Mary"
  • Diana Ross, "I'm Coming Out"
  • Jackie Wilson,"Higher and Higher"

I wonder how many needy people would enjoy a warm and hearty meal with all that moola? It's silly and stupid to waste all that money in a period of 8 hours to feed and wine a lot of free loaders when thare are millions going hungry daily. By the way, the majority will find flaws and criticize the party givers soon after.

Sounds like she's sticking with the classics, which I totally expected. But come on, girl, I know that you love some Lil Wayne!
