That Was The Week That Was: Peace, Love & Understanding

A new feature begins today with a Friday playlist which reflects on the week gone by. The US President, I suspect, along with Brexit, will be a good source of material but spare a thought for Arsène Wenger, he’s made the list as well.

In fact he kicks the playlist off with The Jam through to The Rifles – which, admittedly, is not a long musical journey although this is something of a circuitous route. Peter, Bjorn and John begin Brexit and it ends with the Ting Tings, while David Davies and Diane Abbott are serenaded by The Burning Hell through Ian Brown. The rest is Donald Trump’s; it’s all his. You get the idea of how this works.

Back on Monday with 1991’s Times of our Lives.
