MPs reveal their Spotify playlists

You might have seen that United States President Barack Obama released his Spotify playlist.

If you didn't know, Spotify is a music streaming service, and as Mr Obama is about to go on his summer holiday, this must have seemed like a perfectly reasonable thing for the US press pack to ask him about.

Our MPs aren't about to go on their summer holidays, but we thought it was reasonable to ask them about their favourite song choices anyway.

The results? Let's just say they're mixed.
