Barack Obama's Spotify Playlist

Includes No Doubt, Bruce Springsteen, Ricky Martin, Wilco.

He's on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and Tumblr, and now Barack Obama has joines Spotify. The US President's first playlist on the music streaming come social network website is an interesting look into the music library of one of the most powerful men in the world. Although it's highly unlikely that he personally created the playlist (surely he more important things to do, like, you know be the President of America, right?), we have to give it to whoever put together this 'eclectic' playlist, which includes No Doubt to Bruce Springsteen, Wilco to Electric Light Orchestra. Props to whichever staff member included Ricky Martin ? sneaky little bastard. The songs will play during Obama's 2012 campaign events.
