President Obama's iPod

The July 11 issue of Rolling Stone has an in-depth conversation with the 44th POTUS, Barack Obama, about... music. Dylan, Springsteen, the Stones, Sheryl Crow, Jay-Z, and Ludacris are on the current senator's iPod, but more than that, he's also on phone-number terms with Springsteen and Jay-Z.

Meet the new boss, friends with the other bosses.

Maybe most revealing, Obama name-drops two songs as being particularly meaningful to him: Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" and the Stones' "Gimme Shelter." Check the lyrics and know the man....

1.20.09 can't come soon enough, when the world finally will be given shelter from a guy who doesn't even choose his own iPod tracks:
