The White House has launched a channel on the music-streaming website Spotify, and it appears President Barack Obama enjoys songs by a couple of Canadian music icons.
On Friday Obama tweeted links to his Spotify summer playlists; one for daytime and one for nighttime.
Among the President’s picks were “Suzanne” by Leonard Cohen, and “Help Me” by Joni Mitchell. Both were on his nighttime playlist.
Along with the two Canadian legends, Obama’s after dark list includes Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Beyonce, and John Coltrane among others.
His daytime playlist includes Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Justin Timberlake.
