Ever wonder what type of music your favorite congressman listens to?

On Sunday, Spotify released the playlists of seven U.S. senators and 13 U.S. representatives.

Bruce Springsteen was a predictable favorite, appearing on the playlists of eight Congressmen. Tracks from Broadway smash "Hamilton" also appeared on multiple playlists, including that of Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Rep. Joe Crowley of New York.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey has a nice mix of classics (Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye), alternative contemporary (Ellie Goulding, Hozier) and power ballads (Sara Bareilles' "Brave," Rachel Platten's "Fight Song"). Booker's playlist also features songs from the hot soundtracks of "Hamilton" and musical drama "Empire."

Rep. Darrell Issa of California favors classics like Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, and Jimi Hendrix. Issa's playlist also included "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce and Ryan Adams' cover of "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift. In a dose of '90s nostalgia, the congressman also included a Fu-Schnickens track featuring Shaquille O'Neal, "What's Up Doc? (Can We Rock)."

Politicians, they're just like us, trying to seem hip and relatable by sharing their Spotify playlist.
