Bill Clinton’s Top 20 Songs of All Time

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 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. Besides his best-of songlist, Clinton is also hosting the Decade of Difference Concert on October 15.

WHY: Through performances and film, “A Decade of Difference” will highlight the Clinton Foundation’s efforts to improve global health, strengthen economies worldwide, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment. Over the past 10 years, President Clinton’s vision and leadership have resulted in nearly 4 million people benefiting from lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment; more than 12,000 U.S. schools building healthier learning environments; more than 26,000 micro-entrepreneurs, small business owners, and smallholder farmers improving their livelihoods and communities; and more than 2.2 million tons of greenhouse gases cut or abated in some of the world’s largest cities. And he has redefined the way we think about giving and philanthropy through his Clinton Global Initiative, whose members have more than 2,000 commitments that have already improved the lives of 300 million people in more than 180 countries. In addition to his Foundation work, President Clinton has served as top United Nations envoy for the Indian Ocean tsunami recovery effort and currently serves as the UN Special Envoy to Haiti and the co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission.
