Among will.i.am's favorites are Public Enemy's "Fight the Power", A Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Apple Bum" and Frank Sinatra's "The Girl From Ipanema". Meanwhile, Benji lands his choices on Blink-182's "Stay Together for the Kids", Weezer's "Butterfly" and The Game's "Let's Ride".
As for Samantha, her playlist includes Lily Allen's "The Fear", John Lennon's "Bring on the Lucie" and Britney Spears' "Circus". Many other big stars are scheduled to add their favorite playlists for the auction in the coming months.
