Among the plethora of topics a songwriter can choose to write a song about, politics probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. This may not be as true as of late, with the election and inauguration of already controversial president Donald Trump sparking conversation in and outside of the music world.

Regardless, there are still plenty of songs out there that have to do with the leader of the oval office in some way. In celebration of President’s Day (Feb. 20), Billboard has gathered 20 songs involving presidents, putting them together in one playlist for your enjoyment even if you’re not fortunate enough to have the federal holiday off of work.

Whether it's a song literally about one of our past presidents (Anohni's "Obama," Bishop Allen's "Abe Lincoln") or songs with president in the titles that aren't quite so presidential (Lil Wayne's "President Carter") -- oh, and a Trump'd remix of Migos' "Bad and Boujee" -- take a listen to our presidential playlist below.
