The whole playlist is up on Spotify for your backyard BBQ pleasure. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. So here's this year's offering. First, Tom Hanks celebrated his 65th birthday with a surf-rock DJ set on Boss Radio 66. Here’s a playlist of songs I’ve been listening to lately—it's a mix of old and new, household names and emerging artists, and a whole lot in between. He also sneaks in a track from We the People, an animated Schoolhouse Rock–style educational musical series executive-produced by Barack and Michelle Obama. While we were still in the White House, I began sharing my summer favorites—and now, it’s become a little tradition that I look forward to sharing with you all. Photo: ABC via Getty Images

This has been a huge weekend for dads getting their turn with the AUX cord. Then, Barack Obama released his annual summer playlist on Twitter, with a caption explaining that “it’s a mix of old and new, household names and emerging artists, and a whole lot in between.” SZA’s “Good Days” makes the cut, as does Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s collaboration Silk Sonic and their track, “Leave the Door Open.” There are tracks from Jazmine Sullivan, Rihanna, and Migos, as well as Obama’s signature peppering-in of dad rock: Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Chicago, and Bob Dylan. pic.twitter.com/29T7CcKiWZ— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 9, 2021
