I’m a firm believer in the power that comes from a really well-executed playlist and, over the last 11-months, this is something that I’ve taken great advantage of. In fact, I’m possibly even a little too reliant on this.
Nevertheless, I think we could all do with a little pick-me-up playlist at the moment, so these are my feel-good necessities when I need a little help from Spotify (if you’re using anything aside from Spotify, I think it’s time to grow up).
Erasure - A Little Respect
Buddy - Trouble On Central
Confidence Man - Does it Make You Feel Good?
LCD Sound System - I Can Change
Robyn - Dancing On My Own
Adam & The Ants - Prince Charming
Yazoo - Only You
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark - Enola Gay
Phony Ppl - Take A Chance
Stevan - Timee
Theophilus London - Bebey
Spencer Davis Group - Keep On Running
Primal Scream - Movin’ On Up
Franc Moody - She’s Too Good For Me
Prince - Raspberry Beret
I am going to keep it to 15, because otherwise I’ll get carried away and be making bespoke playlists all day (please note: Lizzo’s entire discography would also make this list). If you’re not a ‘fester-in-self-pity’ kind of person, what’s your go-to song when you need a lil’ Monday morning pick-me-up?
