Obama names favorite song, book and movie of 2015.

Asked about his favorite things of 2015, President Obama revealed to People magazine that Kendrick Lamar’s “How Much a Dollar Cost” is the song he can’t stop listening to.It’s the end of the year, which means it’s time for best-of lists — and President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama got with the trend, telling People magazine about their “favorite things” from the year that was.

They are Fates and Furies, a novel about a marriage by Lauren Groff, and The Martian, starring Matt Damon. “Never, even in my most grandiose dreams, did I think the President would read my book, let alone like it,” she said through her publisher, Riverhead Books. From their most danced-to tunes to their best vacations evah, here’s a look back at the social-media scrapbook of the first couple’s greatest hits of 2015: When he’s not running the country, the president enjoys reading. President Obama chose Matt Damon’s action-packed space thriller “The Martian,” while the First Lady opted for the animated fan-favorite, “Inside Out.”

Obama’s wife, Michelle, revealed her picks, too, telling People that she can’t get enough of Bruno Mars’ song “Uptown Funk.” She and a troupe of dancers performed to the lively song earlier this year on “Ellen.” For her favorite book, Mrs. The commander in chief tested his survival skills while filming an episode of Bear Grylls’s show, “Running Wild.” “Bear-ack” Obama cited the experience as one of his favorite moments of 2015.

POTUS’s celebratory tweet became the fourth most retweeted comment of 2015, coming in only behind commentary on Zayn Malik’s departure from the pop group One Direction. The President previously showcased his diverse music taste in his Spotify summer vacation playlist, which spanned jazz (Miles Davis, John Coltrane), classic rock (Rolling Stones, Van Morrison), hip-hop (Talib Kweli & Hi Tek, Nappy Roots, Mos Def), funk (Sly & the Family Stone), modern rock (Coldplay, Florence + the Machine), indie rock (Okkervil River) and more. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
