President Barack Obama revealed his 2012 playlist, reports the Huffington Post, and it turns out he’s got pretty diverse musical tastes. Bruce Springsteen, Al Green, Arcade Fire, No Doubt and Wilco all made his list, but he’s got a good amount of country on his iPod as well. Sugarland, Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Zac Brown Band and Montgomery Gentry are all listed as presidential favorites.

Darius Rucker’s “This” and “Learn To Live,” Sugarland’s “Everyday America” and “Stand Up,” Dierks Bentley’s patriotic “Home,” Zac Brown Band’s “Keep Me In Mind,” and Montgomery Gentry’s “My Town” are all among President Obama’s favorite songs at the moment.

Some other notable tracks the President is digging right now? “You’ve Got The Love” by Florence + The Machine, “Your Smiling Face” by James Taylor, and “The Best Thing About Me Is You” by Ricky Martin. You can listen to his whole playlist playlist HERE, or stream it on Spotify.
