40 Favourite Songs of Famous People

Barack Obama proves how cool he is again

40 Favourite Songs of Famous People


We all have our favourite songs; perhaps it was a childhood favourite, or a track associated with a particular fond memory. Perhaps it was something that taught you about a different way of life, or a different way of looking at things - either way, it's a deeply personal choice which no one should judge.

That's not going to stop us laughing at Cristiano Ronaldo's selection though.

Enjoy our selection of celebrities' favourite songs; Bob Dylan and The Clash appear twice and David Cameron takes the award for most appropriate selection.
