Aww! Gwen Tweeted this afternoon about how exciting it was being #1 on President Obama’s list!

This is pretty cool! President Barak Obama has released his new “Campaign Playlist” consisting of 27 songs on Spotify, the new online music program. And guess what song is #1? No Doubt’s “Different People”! It’s pretty incredible and features some really powerful songs. It was also announced last month that Obama was interested in having Gwen on his “wish list” of celebrity endorsees. The band has always been strong supporters of Obama and his wife Michele.

SPIN — It’s not like we’re very surprised, but President Obama, who has already gone down in history as the first candidate to have waged a truly effective social media-based presidential campaign, is at it again: Barack has dropped a 27-track “Campaign Playlist” via Spotify and his Facebook page. The mix includes a wide array of cuts that basically represent the president’s entire constituency — yes, even the country fans. And yes, even the REO Speedwagon fans. Included: “Different People” (No Doubt), “I Got You” (Wilco), “The Weight” (Aretha Franklin), “Stand Up” (Sugarland), and, well, obviously, “Let’s Stay Together” (Al Green).
