Former President Barack Obama releases his 2023 Spotify summer playlist

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DR. FEELGOOD")

ARETHA FRANKLIN: (Singing) Got me a man named Dr. Feelgood.

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. Former President Barack Obama just shared a Spotify playlist featuring his favorite summer songs for 2023. His tastes range from old-school soul, like Aretha Franklin's "Dr. Feelgood," to Hot 100 bops like SZA's "Snooze."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "SNOOZE")

SZA: (Singing) Oh, I can't lose when I'm with you.

MARTIN: And in case you were wondering, Obama says, yes, he did actually make his own playlist. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
