    It's been an especially rough week for all of us. Trump's inauguration was on Friday, people participated in uplifting Women's Marches all over the world on Saturday, which was followed by our POTUS being a Twitter bully, as usual, and Trump has signed 10 executive actions (so far) - including the approval of the Dakota Access and Keystone Oil Pipeline and an anti-abortion executive law. Which is why Lily Allen's cover of Rufus Wainwright's "Going To A Town" couldn't have come at a better time.

    Allen's cover of "Going To A Town" was directed by Mark Ronson and the video - directed by Bafic - shows a black-and-white montage showing Allen at Saturday's Women's March in London. It's an extremely powerful video as protesters hold various anti-Trump slogans as Allen sings, "Im so tired of you, America."

    The song is part of a Spotify playlist Lily Allen created called "he's got the whole world, in his tiny hands" including songs like "World War None!" by Frank Sinatra and R.E.M.'s "It's The End OF The World As We Know It." This playlist is exactly what you need today to lift your spirits.
