Bashar al-Assad’s iTunes Playlist


Hackers got a hold of about 3,000 emails from account shared between Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and his wife. One conversation chronicles the ruthless leader’s iTunes purchases, and let’s just say it’s an interesting mix. Without further ado, here’s a selection of songs purchased be the al-Assads. (Spotify playlist!) [h/t The Atlantic]

Blake Shelton - “God Gave Me You”

Right Said Fred - “Don’t Talk Just Kiss”

New Order - “Bizarre Love Triangle” 

The Cover Girls - “We Can’t Go Wrong” 

Leona Lewis - “Hurt”

Chris Brown - “Look at Me Now ft. Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes”

LMFAO - “Sexy and I Know It” 

Right Said Fred and “Sexy and I Know It”: The songs a dictator gets down to. That said, “Bizarre Love Triangle” seems like a somewhat fitting description of Assad’s rule.
