On 15 August I posted a piece about what's on Michael Phelps' iPod (spoiler: lots of hip hop). Over the weekend I came across a piece in thew September issue of Macworld magazine about What's on Obama's iPod.

The story which quotes The Examiner (article offline) says that Obama’s iPod contains an ecclectic assortment of music including classic folk (Bob Dylan), classic classical (Yo-Yo Ma), contemporary female singer songwriter (Sheryl Crow, who performed live at the DNC), and some hip-hop (Jay-Z).

Obama's iPod also includes dedicated playlists for jazz legends Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Charlie Parker.

“Actually, one of my favorites during the political season is ‘Maggie’s Farm,’” Obama said of one of Dylan’s tracks. “It speaks to me as I listen to some of the political rhetoric.”

Note: The Examiner article is offline but the UK's Telegraph also has a story about Obama's iPod.
