So this of course begs the question: What sort of music does Bill Clinton listen to in his spare time? What's on his presidential iPod? Perhaps unsurprisingly, given his saxophone-blowing past, his top 20 tunes of all time, listed below, lean towards jazz. He's also into spirit-raising message songs, as evidenced by his Mahalia Jackson, Sarah McLachlan, Elton John, and Mickey Magnum picks. Overall, it is the cool list you'd expect from Bill. The guy knows his music.
