Soundtrack for Christmas23rd December 2020
Every year, I’ve sent out a list of my favourite business books before Christmas…
…But the truth is, I like music almost as much as I like reading.
Jazz is the soundtrack to my life…
And believe it or not, I used to be a mobile DJ!
It was a LONG time ago… Back in the days when I used to have hair :)
It was a pretty crazy time…
I even remember one weekend, performing in front of West Ham United’s second squad (oh, the glory!). While we were on stage, one of our trio had to use a soldering iron to keep our rig going…
So this year, I thought I’d do something a little different and share with you my music soundtrack for the holidays.
Well… not exactly my soundtrack…
I surveyed some of the great and the good to find out what they’re listening to this Christmas, and have included their top choices.
There’s one common theme. As we help companies improve their financial management, these are all about money.
1. Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer.
No surprises here: He’ll have Simply Red’s “Money’s Too Tight to Mention” playing on repeat.
2. Donald Trump, President of America.
Are the rumours that he’s really broke true? He’ll be playing “I Need a Dollar” by Aloe Blacc.
3. Jacqui Smith, Hazel Blears, Tony McNulty, Geoff Hoon, Kitty Ussher and David Laws.
It’s “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits for all these former ministers, who resigned during the expenses scandals.
4. Eric Yuan, founder of Zoom
For the first Christmas ever, he’ll be listening to “Billionaire” by Bruno Mars! Congratulations.
5. Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
With new deals with Netflix, Disney and Spotify, this couple will be playing “Let’s Make Lots of Money” by the Pet Shop Boys. You can probably listen to their first podcast straight after finishing my music playlist!
6. Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health.
He’ll be listening to “Bills, Bills, Bills” by Destiny’s Child. And probably sending a copy to Rishi Sunak too…
7. Most people during 2020…
“Life Is a Lemon and I Want my Money Back” by Meat Loaf. Enough said.
The good news is that 2021 is on its way. Here’s to a much more positive year ahead for everyone.
And in the meanwhile, wishing you a merry, musical Christmas!
