Sure, some eyebrows have been raised over the fact that President Obama gave Queen Elizabeth an iPod but I think it's an inspired gift.
I mean, how cool is it that he gave her something I'd like to receive? Also, what could be more American than musical theatre?
Finally, a British designer named Jonathan Ive played a major role in creating the iPod, which helped revive the sagging fortunes of Apple Computer. It's the greatest example of Anglo-American cooperation since Lend-Lease.
Here's a list of the songs. Apparently they were all taken from a CD called Ultimate Broadway. They're classics, featuring a mix of British and American performers, and I have almost all of them on my iPod. Okay, excuse me while I go create my very own royal playlist!
