    From the ridiculous (REO Speedwagon, ELO) to the sublime (AF. Florence).
    Analyze this.

    I had just assumed the President got his own special IPod with every song ever recorded on it.

    It's fun to look at it and try to figure what kind of voter he's courting with every selection.

    The POTUS shouldn't have time to listen to most of that crap.

    Not much to say about the playlist. But clicking that link was worthwhile, just for this:

    So he doesn't pay for music either? Somebody better not tell Tiger Vols. :D

    I declare shenanigans on that list. There's no Kenyan tribal music.

    Darius Rucker, I can understand...I'm not a big fan, but I'd imagine POTUS has played 18 with him somewhere.

    I wonder how many people had to sign off on that list before it was sent out.

    I'd love to see what his real list is. I'm not suggesting a secret love for NWA or Too Live Crew, but one that probably has some Common, Outkast, Jay-Z, or some other soulful crooner who has lived the kind of life that the President can't openly admit to being a fan without someone reading too much into it...

    Jay-Z, headlining the staff ball the night after inauguration. Arcade Fire also played.

    You crack me up sometimes.

    So a president is supposed to sit at his desk 24 hours a day for all four years of his term and let the outer influences of the world be damned? That's a tad unrealistic.

    If you're going to rip him, slag him for having two Sugarland songs in the mix.

    Zac Brown Band? C'mon. Obama listens to Zac Brown Band. Riiiiiight. What a crock that list is.
