Starting Point playlist for Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Christine Romans opened today's music features with “Float On” by Modest Mouse. Sound vaguely familiar? The song is perhaps most well known for Lupe Fiasco's 2010 remake "The Show Goes On," featuring the prominent bass line. Also on Christine's playlist: "Today" by Smashing Pumpkins.

Will Cain's picks for the day included "Santa Monica" by Everclear and "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by The Beach Boys. The oldies band performed their hit "Good Vibrations" at the 2012 Grammy Awards, their first live performance with all surviving band members since 1996.

Marvin Gaye's crooning saxophone tune "What's Going On" was brought to you by Will Allen, urban farmer and author of "The Good Food Revolution." Other guest picks were, from Murray Lipp, "Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Garden, and Bruce Springsteen's "Highway Patrolman," from Kerry Kennedy.

Panelist Margaret Hoover played "Radioactive" by Kings of Leon, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta closed the show with "You Dropped a Bomb On Me" by The Gap Band, hearkening back to the 80s.
