Music To Get You Through The Week #16

A brand new week brings our brand new playlist!

It may appear as though the good old British weather is trying to dampen down summer these past couple of days – but fear not, we have another fantastic selection of songs to boost your mood and keep you smiling through to Sunday.

#Monday Mega Tune!

The Killers – Mr Brightside

We understand that Mondays can be a real chore to many, and it can feel like the weekend is ever so far away, but we’re here to try and put a positive outlook on the day! Let’s get you pumped up and ready to take on the week. This absolute classic from The Killers is sure to work a treat. After all, it’s near impossible not to sing along to! Monday, let’s have it!

“Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis

But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside.”

#Tuesday Talent

Sigma feat. Ella Henderson – Glitterball

Winding down on a Tuesday evening may include catching up on some of your favourite shows, and with television nowadays it’s hard not to notice the talent shows. Whether or not you’re a fan of these ‘reality’ programs, there can be no doubt that they do produce some really talented folk… amongst all the rubbish! The latest song from the (we feel) super talented, Ella Henderson, sees her team up with popular dance artists, Sigma, producing a potential summer smash! Give Glitterball a listen here, and turbo-charge your Tuesday!

“Standing here in the music hall
With my microphone and a glitterball
And you walk right in blowing through the doors
Like a force of nature, a force of nature

I can’t look up cause my head’s a mess
But you’re beautiful in the way you dress
I’m lost for words and I’m powerless
Right from the beginning you’ve got me singing”

#Wednesday Warmer

Groove Armada – At The River

Wednesday has arrived already, and brings with it a sense of achievement that we’re closer to the weekend than you think! If you’re one of the lucky ones that have a summer holiday booked up, or you’re just looking for a spot of mid-week relaxation, then this chilled classic from Groove Armada will make you feel like you’re on a beautiful beach already.

“If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.”
(Not the most diverse lyric content here, just beautiful sounds!)

#Thursday Thinker

Frank Ocean – Thinking About You

Have no fear, Friday is nearly here! Thursday is the last hurdle before we get that Friday feeling – and we’ve been thinking about you (see what happened there?) since Monday! For this Thursday we have selected a slice of smooth R’n’B from Mr Frank Ocean. This should easily keep you in that calm and chilled head space as we approach the end of the week.

“No, I don’t like you, I just thought you were cool
Enough to kick it
Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho
Since you think I don’t love you, I just thought you were cute
That’s why I kissed you
Got a fighter jet, I don’t get to fly it, though

I’m lyin’ down thinkin’ ’bout you (ooh, no, no, no)
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you (you know, know, know)
I’ve been thinkin’ ’bout you
Do you think about me still?
Do you, do you?”

#Friday Force

Karen Harding – Say Something (Zac Samuel Remix)

You made it! The working week has flown by (Yes? No?), and hopefully our song choices have been of some assistance so far. Whatever your plans are for the upcoming weekend we hope it’s a good one (and a sunny one…) This awesome remix of Karen Harding’s debut, ‘Say Something’ is a great way to get you in the party mood. Or you could just do a solo celebratory shuffle that Friday has arrived!

“Baby, if you wanna say something, say it now
Cause I ain’t got the time to be waiting around
Come on, tell me what you’re feeling, use your mouth
If you wanna say something, say it now”

#Saturday Superstar

Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now

Seen by many as the pinnacle of the week, Saturday is best kept flying with this absolute classic! Queen are undoubtedly one of the greatest bands of all time and complete legends – so this will surely get you singing and dancing along, no matter what your plans are.

“Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it’s turning inside out Yeah!
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now don’t stop me
‘Cause I’m having a good time having a good time”

#Sunday Settler

James Bay – Stealing Cars

The weekend might nearly be over, but Sunday is the perfect time to kick back, relax and reflect on the week. We want to soothe you into your new week after all the fun of the past couple of days. The wonderful, James Bay has so many beautiful songs, and we’ve chosen an early one of his called Stealing Cars (not that we endorse this, at all!)

If you don’t already love a bit of Bay, we’re pretty sure you will after this!

“Let the heat of the sun
Reignite your memory
‘Cause if we just turn and run
Let them fire the gun

No I don’t know why seasons change
Or how we fell so far
Before our hearts go up in flames
Let’s go throwing stones
And stealing cars”

Have a wonderful week! 🙂
