跟着奥巴马听音乐!奥巴马的2018年度音乐推荐清单

新年快乐!虽然在2018年底各大网站已回顾了各种年度榜单,但可能都比不上接下来这张榜单惹人好奇,那就是美国前总统奥巴马的个人2018最爱歌曲。

自2015年开始,奥巴马都会评选他的年度书籍丶电影与音乐清单,已成了一项奥巴马个人最爱的「传统」。藉着「盘点」这个动作,「让我能停下来,并经由我认为最发人深省丶激励人心或单纯喜爱的书本丶电影与音乐去重新审视这一年;这也给了我一个机会去挖掘才华洋溢的作家丶音乐人或说故事高手,这张清单上有的人可能家喻户晓,也有大家从未听过的名字。」奥巴马说。

奥巴马的音乐品味众所皆知,就如同身为总统必须胸襟开阔一般海纳百川,其中有当红如Cardi B丶Beyonce丶Jay-Z丶Kendrick Lamar,还收纳了Prince于1983年在家录制的遗作《Piano and a Microphone 1983》中的Mary Don’t You Weep。另外受到葛莱美提名肯定的H.E.R.丶J. ColeLeon Bridges等也在其中。2018年12月过世丶具有「歌曲造型师Song Stylist」美誉的知名爵士歌手Nancy Wilson也名列其中,奥巴马特别推荐了她整张专辑《The Great American Songbook》作为致敬。

其他类别还包括Ιndie Rock如Courtney Barnett丶Kurt Vile,乡村如Brandi Carlile丶Ashley McBryde,嘻哈如Chance the Rapper丶Jay Rock等,也有非洲音乐人如FatoumataDiawara与Jupiter &Okwess。而英国音乐制作人Tom Misch, 美国创作歌手Anderson East则代表上述所说「从未听过」丶却值得注目的名字。
