#Monday Madness

Our HouseMadness 

Seeing as it’s a glorious bank holiday Monday and I’m sure you’ll all be up to no good over the weekend, it made perfect sense to suggest a bit of Madness for your bank holiday festivities. Just make sure you don’t wind up loosing your house like these guys…

“Father wears his Sunday best
Mother’s tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister’s sighing in her sleep
Brother’s got a date to keep
He can’t hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street…”

#Tuesday talent

End of affair – Ben Howard

With the faint memory of a three day weekend lurking in your head, let’s use those joyous thoughts to inspire great work this week! If that’s not enough to get you going then just watch the way Mr. Howard uses his guitar in this masterpiece. If you need some inspiration then this can be your muse for the week…Just don’t go round shouting into stuff!

“The end of the after
The weight of a war
The kindness gone to bed
The weight of your laughter
Alive in the hall
Did he hear, did he hear the fumbled words you said

Living without her
Living at all
Seems to slow me down
Living forever
Hell I don’t know
Do I care do I care the thunders rumbled sound”

#Wednesday warrior

Jungle – X Ambassadors ft Jamie N Commons

Seeing as it’s the middle of the week, it’s about time we had some motivational, inspirational and downright pump-up-worthy music. So it makes sense to go for this energetic collaboration from X Ambassadors & Jamie N Commons. If it was good enough for the World Cup, it’s good enough for a Wednesday.

“Well it’s too long living in the same old lives (yeah)
I feel too cold to live, too young to die (yeah)
Will you walk the line, like it’s there to choose (yeah)
Just forget the wit, it’s the best to use

Oh, Lord
I said, “Oh, Lord”
I said, “Oh, Lord”

Won’t you follow me into the jungle (yeah)
Ain’t no god on my streets in the heart of the jungle (oh, Lord child)”

#Thursday eternal

Live Forever – Oasis 

You’re so close now that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but Thursday’s dragging itself out as long as possible. So here’s a classic that’ll give you the drive to get through it and see out the last few hours of your day!

“Maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows
‘Cause I just wanna fly
Lately did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone

Maybe I just wanna fly
Want to live I don’t wanna die
Maybe I just wanna breath
Maybe I just don’t believe
Maybe you’re the same as me
We see things they’ll never see
You and I are gonna live forever”

#Friday funk

Upside Down – Diana Ross (Featuring Jamiroquai)

Although it happens every week, there’s nothing like a Friday afternoon to get you excited for the weekend. Whether you’re going to order a tasty Papa John’, hit the town or just enjoy it with your family and friends, Friday nights are always funky! So what could be more fitting than a decent disco track? Take it away Diana…

“Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Instinctively you give to me
The love that I need
I cherish the moments with you
Respectfully I say to thee
I’m aware that you’re cheatin’
When no one makes me feel like you do”

#Saturday vibes

One Day – Bakermat (Vandaag)

Saturday night’s alright for fighti…I mean dancing! It’s hard not to get a little swing in your step on a Saturday night. The potential for adventure is in the air and you have no idea where you’ll end up! This beautiful mix of brass and bass is the perfect tune to get you in the going out mood…

#Sunday chill out

So much for love – Gramatik 

Sundays are reserved for those relaxing moments in life, where you enjoy the company of others whilst going about your daily business without a care in the world. As you can see, this video literally does just that and the music goes with almost any Sunday activity you could imagine… Just don’t remind yourself about monday.
