If you're having trouble narrowing down the long list of Democratic presidential candidates, it might be time to consider their taste in music. 

Time Magazine politics reporter Lissandra Villa tweeted a list of the walk-out songs Democratic presidential candidates used Sunday at the Iowa Democrats Hall of Fame. The list includes some classics and the hottest song of 2019.

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, walked on stage to "Old Town Road" by Atlanta rapper Lil Nas X. Villa didn't specify whether the University of New Hampshire Law School alumnus used the remix that features Billy Ray Cyrus or the original version.

Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren stuck with Dolly Parton's "9 to 5." The Massachusetts senator used the anthem for the working class during a March rally in which she officially kicked off her campaign.

Drive through the mountains of northern New Hampshire, and you can see billboards encouraging Granite Staters to vote for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D- Hawaii. She stuck with that theme and walked out to Marvin Gaye's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

And Sen. Bernie Sanders, D-Vermont, picked a song from a musician that was born before he was. He walked out to "Power to the People" by John Lennon. 

In all, 19 candidates were at the Cedar Rapids event. It was the largest gathering of Democratic candidates in the same place thus far.
