New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has made no secret of his obsession with rock star and fellow New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen. In fact, it’s been hard to tell whether he listens to anything else. Until now.

Introducing the Republican pol’s summer playlist on Spotify – 14 summer jams that will have you dancing on the Jersey Shore boardwalks in no time. Titled “Down The Shore, Everything’s All Right” in a head-nod to The Boss’s “Jersey Girl,” the collection features upbeat summer classics like Bryan Adams’s “Summer of ’69″ and Frank Sinatra’s “Summer Wind.” Naturally, the majority of artists on the list hail from the Garden State, including Bon Jovi, Frank Sinatra, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and the Gaslight Anthem.

Christie recently showed off his musical side when he joined Jimmy Fallon on his late-night show for a five-minute, bluesy slow jam, in which the comedian poked fun at the state’s U.S. Senate special election in October and the governor’s waistline, nicknaming him “Christie Creme Doughnut.”
