Obama is going to go down as having the best taste in music of any president. Some sweet picks on his playlists this year. Some backstory: the White House set up a Spotify account in 2015, and Obama broke it in with two summer playlists: Day and Night. Since then it has been used to make playlists like "Holidays With The Bidens" and "The First Lady's Day Of The Girl." Below are the POTUS Picks, which seem a bit wistful, perhaps because it's his last year in office. (Wonder what will be on President Trump's playlist ). Note the soul classic from Tower of Power, "So Very Hard to Go."
