“This was so fun,” Savannah said. She noted that “Calm Down” by Selena Gomez may be her favorite song on the list. Hoda chimed in, saying: “Oh yea, you’ve been singing that.”
Hoda’s playlist included a mix of up-tempo country, pop hits and oldie-but-goodies like “Dancing in the Moonlight” by King Harvest, “an old classic, my favorite of all time,” she said.
Craig’s playlist shared a common song with Hoda’s: “Fast Car” by Luke Combs. And that wasn’t the only similarity: Beyonce, Jonas Brothers and some oldies also made his list.
“It’s a lot of oldies,” Al Roker said of his summer playlist, which includes hits by Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Elton John — artists that also make an appearance on the weatherman’s walking playlists.
The TODAY team was eager to hear MTV-alum Carson Daly’s picks, which ran the gamut from Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice” to The Roots.
