We’re sure Malia and Sasha have plenty of Secret Service-level rules to abide by, but we get the feeling that when it comes to entertainment, Michelle Obama isn’t just a regular mom—she’s a cool mom. So what, other than her killer sense of style, can be credited for her youthful spirit? In an interview with People for a Campaign 2016 special feature, the First Lady revealed that her favorite song of 2015 is none other than Bruno Mars’s hip-shaking hit “Uptown Funk.”

And while President Obama is regularly busy taking care of domestic and global politic issues, don’t think he’s unaware of what’s taking over the radio waves too. His favorite pick? Kendrick Lamar’s "How Much a Dollar Cost.” In addition to what’s on their playlists, the adorable couple also revealed what book they can’t stop reading (Fates and Furies for Barack, The Light of the World, for Michelle) and which motion picture they most enjoyed (The Martian for Barack, Inside Out for Michelle).

The fun facts don’t just end there, with the pair also revealing what’s always recorded on the White House DVR. POTUS regularly tunes into The Knick, and FLOTUS is a fan of Black-ish. Barack also thoroughly enjoyed his guest appearance on Running Wild with Bear Grylls, which he tells People was a “never thought I’d do that” moment. So are the Obamas America’s coolest family? It certainly appears so.
