Election Line Blues:
1. Bad News, Bad Times - Marion Williams
2. Waiting in Vain - Bob Marley
3. Suffering in the Land - Jimmy Cliff (surprisingly upbeat considering the title)
Dock of the Bay - Aaron Neville
Sitting Here in Limbo - Jimmy Cliff
Many Rivers to Cross - Jimmy Cliff
Long and Winding Road - Beatles

I was trying to think of songs related to voting but couldn't come up with much.
Power to the People - John Lennon
(For God's Sake) Give More Power to the People - The Chi-lites

I think Marvin Gaye's What's Going On? works.

This seems to tie in with my coronavirus playlist:
Fever - Little Willie John or Peggy Lee
Rockin' Pneumonia & the Boogie Woogie - Huey Piano Smith
Ventilator Blues - Rolling Stones
Little Bit of Soap - Garnett Mimms
Ode to Billie Joe - Sinead O'Connor or Bobbie Gentry
("there was a virus going round Papa caught it and he died last year")

I've Got You Under My Skin - Frank Sinatra (or Stuff Smith's humorous take)
Sick And Tired - Chris Kenner
Sea Cruise - Frankie Ford (from back in March when cruise ships were floating death villages)
High Fever Blues - Bukka White
Old Fart at Play - Captain Beefheart
(in which the intricate face mask and important breather hole alternative is explained)
Stayin' at Home - Fats Waller
Ain't Misbehaving - Fats Waller
The Whole World Needs Liberation - James Brown

How on earth did I forget Woody Guthrie,  for the long voting line playlist?
