Music to get you through the week #15

With highs of 34 and not a cloud in the sky, summer is just how we like it. So, in celebration of this historic good fortune (otherwise known as a ‘heatwave’) we’ve put together some of the best feel-good tunes for you to enjoy.

#Monday Monotone

Lovely Day – Bill Withers

Monday may not seem like the best day of the week, due to the fact there’s a whole five days left to go till the weekend and all… But, there is still the hope that whatever the week brings it might be full of joy and adventure. So, what more could you want then a lovely song to go with a lovely day…

“When I wake up in the morning, love
And the sunlight hurts my eyes
And something without warning, love
Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you
And the world’s alright with me
Just one look at you
And I know it’s gonna be
A lovely day
… lovely day, lovely day, lovely day”

#Tuesday Chill Out

Lean On – Major Lazor & DJ Snake ft M0

It’s day two and you’ve got the start of the week over with. Tuesdays aren’t so bad really, so hopefully you’re well into the mood to get some work done. However, if you’re living the free and easy life during summer this track’s perfect for a chilled out day around the house, or to accompany a tranquil BBQ… Wherever really!

“Do you recall, not long ago
We would walk on the sidewalk
Innocent, remember?
All we did was care for each other

But the night was warm
We were bold and young
All around the wind blows
We would only hold on to let go”

#Wednesday Wash Away

Water – Jack Garrett

The days seem to fly by during summer and we’re already mid-way through the week. Obviously, we’d all probably prefer being somewhere with glistening water and sandy beaches, but for now let us enjoy this rare warm weather we’re having.

“I don’t live in a dream
I don’t live in a dream
I don’t live inside a land forgotten
I don’t live in a dream
No I, I don’t live in a dream

I don’t live on the moon
Drink martinis in the afternoon
I don’t pretend to make the world feel better
I don’t live on the moon
No I, I don’t live on the moon”

#Thursday Time Out

Changing – Sigma ft Paloma Faith 

Thursdays are a magical day, knowing that it’s Friday tomorrow really does help lift the spirits and it’s time to start the celebrations. Gather a group of mates together and get out into nature! Go party in a forest (a safe one of course), drive out to the beach or just enjoy your local park. Whatever you do, make sure you make the most of the sun!

“Hell down, heaven down
Livin’ in the same town
Tryina find something new
Vocal beats a frame
I’ve been frozen in
Tryina find a better view
This ain’t real, this ain’t cool
This ain’t what I signed up too
This ain’t right, it’s no good
No good, oh

Everything is changing,
and I’ve been here for too long
Going through the same things
I’ve been hurting too long, got to move on
Say I-I-I-I can’t do this anymore
If everything is changing
and I know, yeah you gotta let go”

#Friday Function

A Town Called Malice – The Jam 

Hopefully you’ve had a great week? The weathers been on our side and that really does make the time go by. Now this track from The Jam is the perfect sound to get you in the mood for a Friday night on the town.

“Better stop dreaming of the quiet life
‘Cos it’s the one we’ll never know
And quit running for that runaway bus
‘Cos those rosey days are few
And…stop apologising for the things you’ve never done
‘Cos time is short and life is cruel
But it’s up to us to change
This town called Malice”

#Saturday Session

Hold Back The River – James Bay

This is a lively one and it’s made even better by the Glastonbury crowd. For anyone who was there, we’re very jealous! For those of you who also weren’t able to go *sob* pin your ears back and enjoy. It brings the kind of feel good vibe that you’ll want to create at any gathering!

“Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But think that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back”

#Sunday Sights

I don’t live in a dream – Jackie Greene 

It’s time to relax! I know it’s been said before but Sundays really are for chilling out, enjoying the last little bit of the weekend and getting ready for the following week. Make sure you’ve got your affairs in order and then leave some time to sit down and enjoy this calming tune.

“I don’t live in a dream
I don’t live in a dream
I don’t live inside a land forgotten
I don’t live in a dream
No I, I don’t live in a dream

I don’t live on the moon
Drink martinis in the afternoon
I don’t pretend to make the world feel better
I don’t live on the moon
No I, I don’t live on the moon”
