Can you believe Barack Obama is on Spotify? We can! His Social Media team is totally on top of things! We mean, come on, the guy is on tumblr! (So are we, by the way!) We usually only allow musicians to share playlists- but we decided to make an exception this time! Even though we know that this very eclectic mix was probably not curated by POTUS himself, wouldn’t it be super cool if it was?
Sure, this playlist is a little “white” and heavy on middle of the road pop (two songs from Sugarland AND Darius Rucker??) – but we’re still impressed. You know what else is kind of cool? Several of these bands have recorded in the building where we sit! Click to stream!
