So Hip

President Obama Is a Spotify User

No doubt appealing to his base of young, hip voters, Barack Obama announced Thursday on his Tumblr that he's joined Spotify. Obama—or one of his staffers—created a public playlist on the music-sharing site that will be played at campaign events, and asked Tumblr followers to suggest songs to add. The controversy-free list includes almost all genres, from pop to country to soul, but is notably lacking in the hip-hop and rap department. Someone seems to have created a Spotify under Mitt Romney's name, but judging from Romney's recent musical choices, it's hard to believe the presidential hopeful would ever play Ol' Dirty Bastard at a campaign event.
