Barack Obama’s Best-Of 2019 Playlist Boasts Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Rosalía

Recommended Posts

I've been seeing headlines about this so now just reading the list.  He has got great taste, and knows now more than I do what's going on in the music cosmos as I've never heard of a few on the list including Big Thief who are referred to as "indie darlings."  I'm interested by that description alone.

Next I have to read his book list.

I mean who the hell is Rosalia?  Time to discover some new artists it looks like.  

I always thought that "Rosalia" is the song that Bruce sometimes plays immediately after "Incident On 57th Street".

Not very funny doc.  I read it carefully the first time to make sure I wasn't reading 'bout the song.  

Notice also I didn't spell it with a t anywhere.

This is all I need to know about his setlist: 

Bruce Springsteen’s “Hello Sunshine". If he said Western Stars I might have paid attention.

The National's offering is the best on there.

 

That said, Big Thief have released two outstanding records this year too.

I didn't see that the first time around, I do like him again.

He’s going to turn up his workout with Hello Sunshine? I assume his workout is some sort of meditation or yoga. Or just a nap.

I know you kid but I can sometimes run to The River better than Badlands.  The tempo means shite when a particular mood hits.

I run to chill music... If I run to music with too pronounced a beat I tend to run to that beat. When I run to chill music I can run as fast or slow as I feel like on that day.

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/bruce-springsteen-streams-double-obama-top-songs-2019-122825636.html

The former president named 34 songs across a number of musical genres including rap, hip-hop, and salsa tracks to his “Top Songs of 2019” list in the final week of the year, and now new Nielsen data shared exclusively with Yahoo Finance shows every song on his list caught a streaming boost.

Even songs from well-established artists, like rock legend Bruce Springsteen’s “Hello Sunshine,” saw streams on premium and ad-supported platforms more than double after getting named to Obama’s list (The Boss’ track went from an average of 5,700 streams per day to more than 11,500.)

Amazing.  And yet my post admiring the man's time management skills in order to be able to listen to so much diverse music and see so many diverse movies and TV series, enough that he could have a top ten of each of these got deleted.  

I better not praise this ability to make money for so many artists.
