Even as president, Barack Obama still has time to listen to music — as well as prove he has better taste than you.
Obama recently took to his official Twitter account to reveal his gigantic summer music playlist. He even broke it down by “daytime” and “nighttime” jams.
You can learn a lot about him by looking at what he likes listening to:
Here are the full lists:
Obama listens to a diverse array of music. His choices range from Chance the Rapper to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes to Aretha Franklin. He also includes Prince on the playlist. Prince, who passed away in April, is a self-proclaimed favourite of Obama’s.
Another observation is that Obama doesn’t just listen to the hits: his Beach Boys pick isn’t “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” but rather “Good Vibrations.” His playlist also spans multiple decades and genres, digging up from both the past and the present.
The only egregious snub seems to be a single song from the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” which the president loves so much that he brought Lin-Manuel Miranda and the rest of the cast to the White House to perform a few songs from it. And no, that track from Anthony Hamilton doesn’t count.
We are currently in the final stretch of Obama’s presidency. While his legacy will be fiercely debated amongst both his fans and critics, there’s one thing they should be able to agree on: the man has really good taste in culture.
