Unless you’ve been held captive in a dungeon for the past few days, you can’t have missed the fact that a certain orange business mogul was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. I think it’s fair to say that a few people were less than enamoured by this development.

One of those people was singer, Lily Allen. To “commemorate” Trump’s inauguration, Allen put together a little Spotify playlist entitled, “He’s Got the Whole World in his Tiny Hands”.

Highlights of the playlist include: “Rasputin” by Boney M and “Russian Roulette” by Rihanna; “Going To A Town” by Rufus Wainwright (with its refrain “I’m so tired of America”); and such subtle titles as “The World (Is Going Up In Flames)”, “North American Scum”, and Allen’s own song “F*** You”.

You can see the full playlist below.
