January dawns and I'm launching a brand new feature this year, now that I've wrapped up 2014's The Hit Makers.

This year I'll be taking a once-a-month look at specific instruments and showcasing five songs or tunes which place that instrument front and center.

My new feature is called Spotlight On...

...and for our first instrument, I'm looking at that most primal of instruments: the hand. Here are five songs which shine a spotlight on handclapping

1 - The First Circle - Pat Metheny Group - 1984

2 - Cecilia - Simon and Garfunkel - 1970

3 - Eight Days a Week - The Beatle - 1964

4 - Stuck in the Middle With You - Stealers Wheel - 1972

5 - Car Wash - Rose Royce - 1976
