After Janet Jackson's bare breast made a quick appearance during the Super Bowl half-time show back in February, as America watched two aloof, moneyed men run for president, pop artists moved in divergent directions in 2004.

The mayor can rock out. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake shared her Spotify playlist this week -- the songs that ostensibly get her pumped up before big Ravens games. She goes with M&T Bank stadium standbys like The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army. " There's Ray Lewis' walk-on song "Hot in Herre" by Nelly. And she tells Spotify her "personal favorite" is "This is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan. We like that she picked "Run This Town. " Which, you know, she kinda does.
