We round-up the last week in music, including news you might’ve missed, our #SongOfTheDay playlist and Classic Of The Week

Happy New Year folks and we mean that, truly. After the patchwork quilt of decay that was 2016, we’ve spent the time between now and when we last spoke hoping that 2017 will be a vintage year.

And do you know what? We really think this is gonna be a year to remember for all the right reasons. Heck, we may have broken a new years resolution or two already – we’re hanging on to the belief that smoking more means less – but there is so much in the world of music to look forward too, including our first Week In Review of 2017. Enjoy.

Classic Of The Week

‘I’m A Believer’ by The Monkees (1966)

Yes The Monkees were a made for TV band. And yes this song, their biggest hit, wasn’t written by any of the group’s members – with the evergreen Neil Diamond the songwriting genius behind this ditty. However, none of these things matter because I’m A Believer is one of the most buoyant songs ever written and we bet that it’s just put a smile on each and every one of your faces.
