It’s that time of year, folks: the Con­ser­vat­ive Polit­ic­al Ac­tion Con­fer­ence, the largest con­ser­vat­ive con­fab, where act­iv­ists con­verge upon Na­tion­al Har­bor to hear speeches by the biggest stars of the right, play NRA games, and see a Ron­ald Re­agan im­per­son­at­or on stilts.

And what, ex­actly, do you need to ex­cite an audi­ence eager to hear about the con­sti­tu­tion­al­ity of ex­ec­ut­ive or­der use and the prob­lems of Obama­care? A mix of oldies but good­ies, like “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Liv­in’ on a Pray­er,” and Top 40 hits like “Ti­tani­um” and “Wake Me Up.”

Here’s a sampling of the in­tro mu­sic heard at CPAC be­fore speeches and pan­el dis­cus­sions. We’ll up­date the post as the tunes come.

“Too Close” - Alex Clare

“Wake Me Up” - Avi­cii

“Sweet Child O’ Mine” - Guns N’ Roses

“Power of Love” - Huey Lewis and the News
