There’s Barack Obama Spotify playlists???!!!!

barack obama dancing

Coolest choices : John Coltrane – My Favorite Things, Miles Davis – Flamenco Sketches, Howlin’ Wolf – Wang Dang Doodle, Sly and The Family Stone – Hot Fun In The Summertime

Coolest choices that I would have never expected : Bob Dylan – Tombstone Blues (Tombstone Blues?!), and Leonard Cohen – Suzanne

Classic Rock bones : Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter, Van Morrison – Moondance

Obligatory, but not obvious, Bob Marley choice : So Much Trouble In The World

How can you go wrong with choices : Nina Simone, Otis Redding, Billie Holliday, Al Green, The Temptations, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Isley Brothers, Aretha Franklin

Give it up for post Native Tongues Hip-Hop choices : Mos Def – Umi Says, Nappy Roots – Good Day, Talib Kweli & Hi Tek – Memories Live

On the modernish R&B/Soul tip : Mary J Blige, Beyonce, John Legend, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Justin Timberlake

Most WTF, I can’t back you on this choice : Okkervil River – (doesn’t matter what song)

Most likely to be pissed that he’s not included (and tweet about why he wasn’t) –  KANYE WEST

And others that may, or may not, fit into these categories

  1. Not my favorite Americana group, but I’m fine with Okkervil River. (The dude is half white, remember….) I’m on board with Coldplay and Brandi Carlile, too.

    I have a hard time imagining W rockin’ to anything deeper than “Double Shot of My Baby’s Love” and similar “party favorites.”

    Rock on, Mr. President!
