A lovely example of musicians overcoming obstacles to create something great: Clifford Chance partner Gunnar Sachs and his jazz band, The Bourbon Street Stompers, have recorded the well-known Italian song Bella Ciao from their home offices.

65th & Ingleside’ by Chance the Rapper 

In the summer of 2018, Chance The Rapper surprised fans with four new singles, and on ’65th & Ingleside’, the rapper opens up about his fiancé, Kirsten Corley. Throughout the song, Chance describes the ups and downs of their long-term relationship. The other three songs are a little more experimental compared to traditional Chance, but this one is by far his best song. He raps about his journey from being ‘broke Chano,’ to going on tour, saying ‘Chano ain’t broke no more.’ This – and the other three songs – are must listen-tos. -Amar Mehta

Video of the day

What we want are individual, personal contributions from lawyers and legal sector professionals working from home. You could be demonstrating a recipe, videoing your daily run, telling a joke, singing us a song, showing off a skill, or just telling us about your day and what you’ve been up to. We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.
