Ever the hip politicians, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden shared their families’ Christmas music playlists on Spotify ahead of the holiday.

Obama, who previously revealed his love for both Beyonce and Van Morrison through a summer playlist, has a mix of timeless classics and modern interpretations of festive tunes on his “Holidays with the Obamas” playlist. Kicking things off with the Vince Guaraldi Trio’s “O Tannenbaum,” the lineup goes on to include Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” Destiny’s Child’s “8 Days of Christmas,” and Frank Sinatra’s “The First Noel.”

For his part, the VP’s “Holidays with the Bidens” opens with Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” mixes it up with Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars,” and wraps things up with Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime.” Take a listen to the playlists, below.
