Music to get you through the week #14

It’s that time again and we know you’re going to need your #MondayMotivation tracks to get you through the week. The weather’s as misleading as ever so we’ve picked a selection that’ll have you moving if you’re enjoying a lazy day indoors, or (weather permitting…) something to groove to whilst the BBQ’s going! 

#Monday Motivation

Everybody Wants To Rule The World  – Tears For Fears

It’s time to kick off the week and there’s probably more than a few of us who need a little motivation to get up and at them today. This classic has everything you need for a Monday morning with its subtle tones and comforting guitar, to top it off it’s a rather topical song for the start of the week. We’ve all had that thought on our way out of the house on a Monday morning and that’ll never change.

“Welcome to your life
There’s no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behaviour
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own design
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most”

#Tuesday Tidal-wave

Wildest Moments – Ben Howard (Jessie Ware Cover) 

With it being Tuesday morning and all it only seems right to start off with a slow burner. We’ve still got three days of the week to go and this beautiful cover by the wonderful Ben Howard will help you through the day. Tuesdays always seem to drag and this track almost feels empathetic in a way!

“Baby, in our wildest moments,
We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest,
Baby, in our wildest moments,
We could be the worst of all
Baby, in our wildest moments,
We could be the greatest, we could be the greatest,
Maybe in our wildest moments,
We could be the worst of all”

#Wednesday Crossing

Ordinary people – John Legend

This ones for all you lovers out there who’re counting down the days till you’ll be properly reunited with your one and only. Having those weekends together are always a blessing and knowing that you’re halfway through the week is a pretty good feeling. So whatever little midweek dramas you may be having just try to ignore (or preferably) sort them out, and know that you’ll be able to chill out together soon.

“Girl im in love with you
This ain’t the honeymoon
Past the infatuation phase
Right in the thick of love
At times we get sick of love
It seems like we argue everyday

I know i misbehaved
And you made your mistakes
And we both still got room left to grow
And though love sometimes hurts
I still put you first
And we’ll make this thing work
But I think we should take it slow”

#Thursday Turn Around

Gold – Spandau Ballet 

We’re going back a few years with this ‘old but goody’ and it’s for a good reason. Looking back through the musical archives there have been a few gems, but nothing as bright as this; it’s GOLD! For those of you getting excited at the fact there’s only one day of the week left this song will suit your mood completely.

“Thank you for coming home
I’m sorry that the chairs are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn

These are my salad days
Slowly being eaten away
Just another play for today
Oh but I’m proud of you, but I’m proud of you

Nothing left to make me feel small
Luck has left me standing so tall”

#Friday On Its Way

Freak – Route 94 & Secondcity 

We’ve made it, *celebratory hug for all* it’s that beautiful part of the week were everything seems to glisten with the promise of what the weekend has to offer! Wether you’re planning to catch up on some well deserved rest or you’re stepping out on the town, you’ll have a ball listening to this.

“‘Cause I will be a freak until the day until the dawn
And we can pump all through the night till the early morn
Come on and I will take you around the ‘hood on a gangsta lean
‘Cause we can pump any time of day
It’s all good for me”

#Saturday Success

Go All Night – Gordon City ft Jennifer Hudson 

You’ve made it, Saturday night’s upon us and it’s time to let loose! Everything you’ve been waiting for throughout the week begins now and you know you need to make the most of it. By tomorrow morning you’ll be feeling very different…probably a little worse for wear. This funky beat will get you in the mood to step out in your best gear and enjoy the night!

“Give me what I want
And I’ll give you what you need
Don’t play with my emotions baby
I’m another breed
Don’t wanna lose this feeling so don’t burn it out
I wanna keep on living in the moment now
I’m pulling you tight
And I might not let you leave
So give me your devotion
And in the night I’ll set you free
Don’t wanna lose control until the lights go out
Just me and you
Let’s get into the moment now”

#Sunday Fear

Last Night – Lucy Spraggan

For all of you who may or may not have partied a little to hard last night, this is the perfect track to make you realise you’re not alone! However bad your head may be feeling today there’s nothing this chirpy beat can’t pick you up from. However if you do have a headache maybe it’s a good idea to turn the volume down a little for this one…maybe the rest of the day actually!

“Last night I told ya I loved ya
Woke up blamed it on the Vodka
I genuinely thought I was dyin’
And I could see that smile you were hiding

Last night I told ya I need ya
That’s the last time I drink tequila
Super lemon and his sidekick salt kid
I start cryin’ and verbally assaulting”
