Aretha, Sly and Al Green
When he’s not busy being commander in chief, President Obama apparently doubles as a deejay.
Asked in a wide-ranging interview by People magazine about the last time he danced, Obama replies that he and wife Michelle had an impromptu groove session with some friends at the White House: “Friday night. In the Yellow Oval. We had some guests over. It was a small group.”“Somebody wanted to dance,” Michelle Obama tells the glossy mag, which hits newsstands Friday. “And Barack was the deejay.”
So which songs are a part of DJ O’s playlist?
“We started with [Aretha Franklin’s] ‘Rock Steady.’ Sly and the Family Stone,” the president says. “Then we ended the night on Al Green, and everybody did a slow dance.”
NOTE: All cleared as SAFE SONGS. Way to go Prez.
