former President Obama is headed home. What he does next is anyone’s guess but I am sure he will continue to provide goodwill and humanity to the wider world. In terms of Trump; there is a lot of fear and uncertainty: just what will the first one-hundred days produce? As we come to terms with a four-year (at the earliest) reality; music has a vital role. In this edition of The January Playlist, I have collected new, politically-motivated songs from Gorillaz, Arcade Fire and others: uplifting and hopeful songs and some great new album tracks/singles from the best of music. In addition, and celebrating sixty years of The Cavern Club, I collect songs from some of the legends who have performed there – Stevie Wonder, The Hollies and The Rolling Stones among them. The Beatles defined the venue so I include a collection of their best songs. ALSO, as D.J. Steve Lamacq focuses on the importance and glory of our small venues; I include five live performances from the venues he features (on his ‘6 Music show) next week. Another full and spirited collection of songs to get your teeth into!

The Cavern Club opened on 16th January, 1957; it closed in 1973 before being resurrected in 1984. It has housed some wonderful artists; none bigger than The Beatles – who would perform regular gigs there at the start of their career

Steve Lamacq dedicates his show to independent venues (from Monday 23 to Friday 27 January, 2017). Over the week he visits Essex, Leeds; Oxford, Birmingham and Brighton; he’ll be finding out what makes some of the smallest music venues in the country the most important – whilst raising awareness of the grassroots music scene.

It has been an emotional and life-changing week for so many people. The world has changed and there is a lot of anger and protest. Things are unfolding, the likes of which we have never seen – let’s hope we never see it again. Regardless of what is happening in America; music continues to inspire and comfort – in addition to addressing political dissatisfaction and corruption. As we put on a brave face, there is a world of great music that is unconcerned with personal agendas and ignoring the pleas of the majority. It brings everyone in and encourages love and unity.  In that spirit; immerse yourself in this week’s finest songs and embrace something pure and dependable.
