Hello everyone, I hope you have had a great week. I’m not posting a personal blog post today because I’ve been so busy but here’s a link to a great playlist I’ve been listening to all week! I haven’t done one of these in a long time so have a listen:
I hope you enjoy it,
As we all know, Christmas is next Sunday and bloggers have already started creating their Christmas playlists filled with their favourite songs to get you in the Christmassy spirit. I haven’t created a Christmas playlist because everyone’s playlist is pretty much the same to be honest. I prefer all the classic Christmas songs such as All I Want For Christmas and Last Christmas. One of my favourite Christmas songs ever is Merry Christmas by British rock band, Slade. I love UK Christmas songs above all and I just can’t get used to listen to pop artists Christmas songs, it just sounds weird to me lol. Enjoy the Christmas playlist below and have a great week!
San Junipero is the fourth episode in season 3 of one of the best shows on Netflix, Black Mirror. It’s about two tourists who meet in a town called San Junipero and a lot of things are revealed throughout the episode. I watched this episode of black mirror last month and I was blown away! I love this episode so much and the extended spotify playlist, created by the writer, brings back the best songs from the 80s from some of my favourite musicians such as The Smiths, Belinda Carlisle and Whitney Houston. One of my favourite songs in San Junipero is Fake by Alexander O’Neal. I’ve been obsessed with this song for a while now because it’s so catchy and has a very 80s vibe. I highly recommend that you watch this episode of Black Mirror and check out this great playlist below:
Who Run The World? Girls. is a great playlist that contains some of my favourite female R&B, Hip-Hop and pop artists like Beyoncé, Eve, Sia, Rihanna and Britney Spears. It always features some of my favourite girls groups ever like The Spice Girls and the Pussycat Dolls. This is a particularly great playlist if you want to listen to some girl power!💁🏾 The singers in this playlist are straight BOSS and show this clearly in their songs. Like the last two playlists, this is more of a throughback playlist because I love hearing the great tunes that were released between 2000-2010, which made me first fall in love music. Listen to this great playlist below:
Room 2: Urban Classics is a great playlist full of my favourite urban tunes. It contain Hip-Hop, R&B and UK garage songs from artists including Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliot, Nina Sky and Sisqo. What I love about this playlist is that it includes some of my favourite dancehall jams like Gimme the Light by Sean Paul, No Letting Go by Wayne Wonder and Turn Me On by Kevin Lyttle. The blend of UK garage and mainstream Hip-Hop makes this playlist unique and refreshing, mostly beacuse UK garage is not as popular as it used to be however, it’s still a great genre of music. Enjoy this playlist below:
Tell me what you think about this playlist and comment below any playlist you’ve heard and/or created!
This weeks songs are:
1) Sigma – Find Me ft. Birdy
Sigmas has released the music video for their latest single, Find Me, on Thursday which features Millie Bobby Brown from the show ‘Stranger Things’. This song features the English singer-songwriter, Birdy, who I must admit I’m quite a fan of. I love her voice in this song, it soo emotional and I like that the music video reflects the song perfectly in my opinion. Check out this great song below:
Sigma – Find Me ft. Birdy
2) Vybz Kartel – Fever
Fever has to be one of my favourite Dancehall songs ever! Vybz Kartel released this song in May and it was one of my favourite summer jams. If you don’t already know, dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music. I’ve always loved dancehall music because it’s so energetic and lively, so please listen to this song below:
Vybz Kartel – Fever
3) Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True
Even though Milli Vanilli didn’t actual sing their own songs, I really like this tune. This duo used back up singers to sing their songs and they were ultimately stripped of a Grammy Award when the media found out. This song reached no. 1 on the German Official charts, so check out this song below:
Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True
Last week I shared my ultimate gig wish list for 2016 and this week for Music Monday, we are going to take a trip down memory lane. Even though pop isn’t my favourite genre, pop music was one of the reasons why I developed my love for music. I love songs from 2007-2011 because I began to have a passion for music at this time. I like the fact that there’s a lot of British artists in this playlist as well as American artists and my favourite artists in this playlist include Lady Gaga, Duffy, The Saturdays, Sam Sparro, Fergie and Christina Aguilera. This playlist is definitely contains the classics and most artists in this playlist were at their prime during this time. Happy Halloween and Enjoy this playlist!
