Joe Biden adds his playlist to Spotify, and it is pretty impressive. This week, the vice president like President Obama shared the list of songs that he (and maybe Jill Biden) will be listening, dancing, and bobbing to during their summer vacation.
Unlike Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden is not a big on of hip hop, but he is a real fan of oldie pop, and is into soft rock. Additionally, he is a mega fan of jazz and like the rest of the universe, he is in love with Adele‘s astonishing voice.
A few famous names that made it on Biden’s list include legends like Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, and Bruce Springsteen along with some fresh faces on the music scene such as Sam Smith. One of the songs that stood out from the list is Lady Gaga‘s “Til It Happens to You.”
Biden introduced the tear-jerking song about sexual assaults on college campuses at the 2016 Academy Awards. The Democratic politician, who toured several colleges with Gaga, had the following to say about the track:
“Take the pledge. A pledge that says, I will intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.’ Let’s change the culture.”
The song was also featured in the documentary, The Hunting Ground. Another track that was hard to miss was Coldplay’s “Til Kingdom Come,” which was performed by Chris Martin at Biden’s son, Beau Biden‘s funeral in 2015. Here is Biden’s holiday playlist:
Stay With Me — Sam Smith
We Take Care of Our Own — Bruce Springsteen
Come Together — The Beatles
Hello — Adele
Til It Happens To You — Lady Gaga
I Wanna Hold Your Hand — Al Green
My Way — Frank Sinatra
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You — Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons
The Best — Tina Turner
Til Kingdom Come — Coldplay
If We Fall In Love Tonight — Rod Stewart
Hallelujah — KD Lang
Do You Hear the People Sing? — Les Misérables
You Don’t Know Me — Ray Charles
You Are So Beautiful — Joe Cocker
Below is Obama’s playlist, which includes some of his favorite artists like Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, and Aretha Franklin. Many are wondering, why is Eminem‘s “Lose Yourself” absent from the list?
POTUS was caught on camera listening to the Detroit rapper right before his big speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Mr. Biden and Mrs. Biden are great dancers, so their sweet playlist will come in handy.
