President Obama's Workout Playlist on Spotify

We Have a Lot of Questions After Listening to President Obama's Workout Playlist

In his recent gig as a guest editor for Wired, President Obama shared his 10-track workout playlist on the magazine's Spotify account. After listening to it in its 45-minute entirety, however, we've got some questions.

The playlist starts off with The Black Eyed Peas's encouraging "Let's Get It Started." The playlist then takes on a more laid-back tone with Nina Simone's "Sinnerman." Perhaps this is his stretching song?

The following two songs from Sting and The Isley Brothers, respectively, are upbeat and groovy and sound like the ideal playlist of dads across the nation. Then there's Icona Pop's "Emergency." A recommendation from his teenage daughters, Sasha and Malia, maybe? The president then shows off his hipster side with a song from New York-based Brazilian band Forro in the Dark.

Then there's Beyoncé. No workout playlist is complete without Beyoncé. The high-energy "Get Me Bodied" is followed by a Jay Z and Drake collaboration, "Off That," and two positive cooldown songs: Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved" and Aussie (!!) Courtney Barnett's "Elevator Operator."

Listen to President Obama's unexpected playlist.
