Sharing the list on Twitter, Obama wrote how he hopes there’s a track or two there that ‘does the trick.’
“From hip-hop to country to The Boss, here are my songs of the year. If you’re looking for something to keep you company on a long drive or help you turn up a workout, I hope there’s a track or two in here that does the trick.”
