A hidden gem in Obama's top ten songs

Fox News got a list of each candidates' top ten favorite songs.  Now, usually I would ignore "news" stories like this because I'm terrified about what the GOP nominee will say, but this makes it worth it (emphasis mine):

Obama, the Illinois Democrat, chose Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” as his No. 2 pick after the Fugees. Songs “I’m on Fire” by Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stone’s “Gimme Shelter” and Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman” rounded out his leading five.

Other artists on Obama’s list were Kanye West, U2 and Aretha Franklin. The contender also gave a nod to will.i.am and his Internet sensation, “Yes We Can,” which was written for Obama.

Obama can't compile a top ten list without including a song that is about him?  And the article leaves out the fact that it wasn't written for him, it was just one of his speeches set to music.  Oh, and you can even hear him delivering the speech beneath will.i.am's singing. 

Why is this not surprising?
