Today is all about music and songs….a massive part of our lives but we take it all for granted. It’s hard for me to pick out my favourites because there are so many, I currently have over 200 favourites in my Spotify playlist and it very much depends on my mood at the time. There is music to sing to in the shower, and no, I can’t sing but why let that stop you, Simon Cowell isn’t listening and why should that stop you singing at the top of your voice anyway, it’s not always about being the best it’s about the passion and the feelings…if you want to sing your heart out, go on, do it….sing your little heart out!!
There is my Yoga playlist, we call this plinky plonky music (I believe this possibly came from Phoebe in Friends many years ago) it’s when you want to relax, when you want to chill out without constantly tapping your foot along…
And there is good old happy stuff, the stuff you have to bob along to, the stuff that gets you dancing, and no, I can’t dance well either, but I do it when I want to…. Apparently when I really get into it I am reminiscent of The Tales of the Unexpected…
Ooooh this takes me back….click here for a little flashback if you remember this programme….even here, I remember the music, I don’t really remember the programme.
So, just a little taster of my playlist for you…..in my car it’s always, always, Jason Mraz….
On my Spotify list, and so that I don’t cheat and only list the “cool” music I will truthfully list every tenth song on my playlist…here we go…
I Feel the Earth Move – Carole King (that’s for dancing)
Buffalo Soldier – Bob Marley and the Wailers (I LOVE his music!!)
End of the Road – Boyz II Men (dare I say cheesy, but it’s a singalong)
On Top of World – Imagine Dragons (a great feel good song for your down days!)
Lean On – Major Lazer (a Tales of the Unexpected dance extravaganza)
Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding (no I haven’t seen the film but I love the song)
Hungry Like the Wolf – Duran Duran (a throwback to school discos, a real memories song)
Just A Little – Liberty X…(a sexy little number by the group who came 2nd but ended up being the better listening)
What I Am – Emma Bunton (a bit hippy, a bit festival, a bit retro….a singalong)
Up – Olly Murs and Demi Lovato (what comes of having a teenage listener in the house)
I’m Yours – Jason Mraz (wishful thinking)
Back to the Earth – Jason Mraz (more wishful thinking)
Fight Song – Rachel Platten (another of those feel good belters)
Ex’s and Oh’s – Ellie King (its a singalong whilst dancing escapism moment)
Tutti Frutti – Little Richard (I adore the old stuff especially the boppy beats)
Get Down on It – Kool and the Gang (more memories more memories, disco fever)
I Love the Way you Love Me – John Michael Montgomery (I also love a bit of Country)
Beautiful – Christina Aguilera (this girl can sing, and whilst this is on it’s apparent that I can’t)
Animal – Def Leppard (oh the memories continue to roll in)
Can’t Believe It – Flo Rida and Pit Bull (see, I like it all!!!)
Get the music on today folks, sing, sing, sing….forget the world for a while and be happy in your own little bubble….
Now I must finish my work and nip off home where there is a man flu epidemic…..get my Nurse’s outfit on and work from home….
