SEE: Barack Obama summer music playlist 39 songs for daytime and nighttime

President Barack Obama's summer jams range from a little pop to a little hip hop, and much in between.
The White House released the president's playlist on Thursday during Obama's family vacation on Martha's Vineyard.
Classics include the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations and Prince's U Got the Look. When he gets into the mood for more recent releases, he's listening to Acid Rain by Chance the Rapper and Forever Begins by Common.
The president is a huge jazz fan, and his playlist includes Lover Man from Billie Holiday and My Funny Valentine from Miles Davis.
Obama says via Twitter: "Been waiting to drop this: summer playlist, the encore. What's everybody listening to?"
The full list of 39 songs is broken down into daytime and nighttime categories, and people can listen to many of the tracks on the Spotify streaming service.
The titles alone show the president adjust his tastes a bit as day turns into night. In the day category, there's So Ambitious from Jay-Z and Pharrell and The Man from Aloe Blacc.

And at night, there's Lean In from Lizz Wright and Say Yes from Floetry.
