Mitt Romney Shows Taste For Country Music, Classic Rock On Recent Spotify Playlist

Now that presidential playlists–and even their musical abilities–are public knowledge, we’ve come to pretty much expect our political candidates to, at some point, share their favorites with their fans. And so republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney recently shared a Spotify playlist via Twitter.

Without speculating on whether any of the presidential candidates actually, truly uses Spotify for their musical fun, we’ll just ask: Who do you think made Mitt’s list?

The list kicks off with a good one: “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” by the fictional Soggy Bottom Boys (the lead vocals are not George Clooney but actually [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dan Tyminski[/lastfm] from Alison Krauss’s Union Station).

Romney dabbles in rock ([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Killers[/lastfm] on one hand–wait, twice!–[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Roy Orbison[/lastfm]and t[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Frankie Valli[/lastfm] on the other); hints at R&B ([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Commodores[/lastfm]); but spends most of his time with country music new and old. That means current stars like Carrie UnderwoodToby Keith, and Tim McGraw but also legends like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash.

Oh and of course there’s a song by Kid Rock — who recently lent his support to Romney during a rally in Michigan.

Any suggestions for his next playlist?
