If it wasn't already abundantly clear, President Obama has the best taste in music of any sitting President in the history of the United States. Not that the competition was ever really that stiff -- I don't think Grover Cleveland was crate-digging for records to play on his phonograph on the weekends -- but Obama has always had appropriately eclectic, slightly dad-like music selection habits. Further evidence: President Obama's new summer playlist, complete with daytime and nighttime divisions.
Not a surprise: it's pretty fun! Just like last year's playlist was. Sure, it's got that annoying whistle-while-you-work song by Edward Sharpe and some sleepy adult contemporary tracks on there, but it's not this guy's job to be checking his Discover playlist every week. Dude is trying to run a country -- he's not going to Boiler Room every night.
With that said, some of these picks are trash, and it's fun to make lists, so we made a playlist of the tracks, minus a few Spotify hold-outs (sorry, Blueprint 3 fans!), and ranked all the tracks below. Make your day feel more presidential by streaming these tracks below and maybe bust out some Oval Office dance moves. (And, try not to think about what a Trump playlist would include!)
