Music to get you through the week #12

Now the weather’s brightening up and the sunshine’s on its way, we’ve got some perfect summer tracks to share with you this week. From modern beats all the way back to some of the oldest summer jams!

#Monday Memories

Summertime – DJ Jazzy Jeff ft The Fresh Prince

The weekend’s over and with it the realisation that a full week of annoying tasks and long hours are ahead of you. …or for those jammy buggers who have a beautiful summer ahead of you this is just another day in paradise.
Whichever camp you fall into, this song’s perfect for a Monday morning!

“Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
Pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back cause it’s the summertime”

#Tuesday Torture

Hideaway – Ben Howard (Kiesza cover)

Yup, there’s still four days of the week left – a pretty awful thing to realise when you wake up today – but don’t worry, the sun is shining (hopefully?) and it’s a brand new day. That’s the kind of approach you have to take at this point in the week, otherwise everything seems rather bleak (ignore that rhyme if you want, but you know it’s there).
This recent hit will bring you right back into the joyful mood you had over the weekend:

“You’re just a hideaway, you’re just a feeling
You let my heart escape beyond the meaning
Not even I can find a way to stop the storm
Oh, baby, it’s out of my control, what’s going on?

But you’re just a chance I take to keep on dreaming
You’re just another day that keeps me breathing”

#Wednesday Work life

I Will Wait – Mumford & Sons

For all you workers out there on the 9-5, or you students whose summer jobs are funding your festival lifestyle, Wednesdays are called #humpdays for a reason. The middle of the week is a special occasion in the sense that it’s awful and beautiful at the same time, you just have to hold on and wait ’til Friday!

“Well, I came home
Like a stone
And I fell heavy into your arms
These days of dust
Which we’ve known
Will blow away with this new sun

But I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground

And I will wait, I will wait for you
And I will wait, I will wait for you”

#Thursday Relax

My love – Route 94 ft Jess Glyne

The week’s been a blur and it’s suddenly Thursday, woohoo the end is nigh! Enjoy the weather however you can, hopefully it’s sunny and bright. These lovely long summer evenings are made for quiet get-togethers in the park!

(The lyrics are pretty easy to this one so there’s no need to waste time here, just play it LOUD and play it PROUD!)

#Friday Thorough

What I might Do – Ben Pearce

It’s the last day of the working week and you need to sort your life out, everything you forgot to do during the week needs to be done now, right now. At least once you’ve finished your work you’ll get that amazing feeling of knowing it’s finally the weekend. The possibilities are endless! Play this tune for that final motivation to get you through the day:

“I knew just what I had to be
When I heard you say what you said to me
To every dude in sight
Look like you working up an appetite for the night, check it
By then I just sat at the back
Peeping you out, the way you act
It was drinking time, getting out of line”

#Saturday Saviour

Last Night A DJ Saved My Life – Indeep

If you enjoyed yourself a little too much last night *no-ones judging* you’re probably not feeling too sparky this morning, to say the least! We understand, and this track’s got all the happy vibes you need to bring you back to life, soon you’ll be dancing round the kitchen like normal, making that fool-proof morning remedy  – the cooked breakfast.

“Last night a DJ saved my life
Last night a DJ saved my life Yeah
Cause I was sittin there bored to death
And in just one breathe he said
You got get up, you got get up, you got get down girl
You know you drive me crazy, baby
You got me turnin to another man”

#Sunday Relief

Best Be Believing – Aluna George ( Shadow Child Remix)

It’s the last day of the weekend! Sundays are wonderful days that should be all about relaxation. Take the time to get your affairs in order and sort out your week ahead, then it’s time to chill out, relax and forget your stresses. This track provides the perfect sound for an easy Sunday afternoon:

“Too many voices drown the ones that need to be
Heard the most. Turn it down, turn it down
Turn it down, turn it down
Everyone’s gonna get their turn
So there’s no need to feel lost
In the crowd, turn me up, turn me up
Turn me up, turn me up”
