Former President Barack Obama has released on social media a list of his favorite songs and books from 2017.

"During my presidency, I started a tradition of sharing my reading lists and playlists. It was a nice way to reflect on the works that resonated with me and lift up authors and artists from around the world. With some extra time on my hands this year to catch up, I wanted to share the books and music that I enjoyed most. From songs that got me moving to stories that inspired me, here's my 2017 list -- I hope you enjoy it and have a happy and healthy New Year," Obama said in his New Year's Eve post.
