Singles File

Tuesday, June 24, 2008; Page C05

A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind.

Christian Kiefer, Matthew Gerken and Jefferson Pitcher featuring Marla Hansen: “James Monroe: The Last Cocked Hat From the upcoming “Of Great and Mortal Men: 43 Songs for 43 Presidencies” comes, let’s face it, the best song ever about the nation’s fifth president. Features a cameo from Sufjan Stevens compatriot Hansen, because all pointlessly comprehensive musical history projects must somehow involve Sufjan.
