Julia Gillard Cuts Sick On Her Very Own Spotify Playlist

Written by Mike Hohnen on April 8, 2013

Left with few options to win over the younger demographic, Prime Minister Julia Gillard has announced she’s totally chill and will prove it via her own personalised Spotify playlist.

The idea was actually Obama‘s, the US prez creating a handful of playlists on the music streaming service, including his Campaign Playlist which pumped Bruce Springsteen and U2, as well as Michelle’s Workout Playlist which was populated with jams from M.J. and J-Lo.

So far, a handful of artists have been revealed as features in what will be called Julia’s Playlist (but judging by the track list the name “Sleeping Pillz From Julez” is more appropriate) including Bruce Springsteen, Blondie followed by some strong Aussie flavour, including one of her remaining cabinet minister’s previous musical acts (no, not Flight Of The Conroys, or The Carrs). Anyway, yawn.

Gillard is known for being somewhat social media savvy, or at least an aide within her office is, so you will now have the privilege to follow Julia’s aide on Spotify, because Facebook, Twitter, 7,000 not-the-longest-election-campaign ads an hour and all the rest of it simply doesn’t give us enough of what we need from our fearless leader.

A spokesperson has stated (Via News.com.au) that “clearly there’s a large audience out there that have got a connection with the Prime Minister and this seemed like the logical next step”. Well, duh.

No doubt Tony Abbott will announce plans to do something similar. It’s not enough that they ruined television with their politics, now they have to ruin Spotify, and I just signed up for the pro account, dammit. *Deactivates*

What can we expect from JG’s Spotify playlist?

Blondie
