What’s On Barack Obama’s iPod?

We already know that John McCain is a huge ABBA fan, from his blog.

But what about Barack Obama? What’s on his iPod?

Obama says he has “pretty eclectic tastes”:

The list of bands reads like the acts at a summer music festival, with the Rolling Stones, Sheryl Crow and Ludacris all in the mix.

Obama said that, growing up, he listened to Elton John and Earth, Wind & Fire but that Stevie Wonder was his ultimate musical hero during the 70s.

The Stones’ track Gimme Shelter topped his favourite songs from the band.

His selection also contained 30 songs from Dylan. “One of my favourites [for] the political season is [Dylan's] Maggie’s Farm. It speaks to me as I listen to some of the political rhetoric.”

No mention of the Barack Obama podcast, though.
