For the week leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, Billboard asked the hosts and anchors of some of cable news’ most-watched shows to put together inauguration playlists — their personal soundtracks for the Jan. 20 ceremony and the next four years. Today’s playlist is a collaboration between Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scaroborough, the co-hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, which airs weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. ET.

1. “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones

What else needs to be said? -Joe

2. “Mother’s Little Helper” by The Rolling Stones

We’re all going to need a little extra help over the next four years.-Mika

3. “Strange Brew” by Cream

We’re going to need a good bit of that, too. It’s the perfect name for a drink that matches the times. – Mika

4. “Free Man In Paris” by Joni Mitchell

Hoping for the best; buying a French chateau in case of the worst. -Joe

5. “Let It Be” by The Beatles

Despite all the chaos and consternation, the republic will survive. – Joe
