Music To Get You Through The Week #17

It’s a brand new week, and the beginning of the traditional ‘Summer holidays’. The sun’s out (intermittently) the town’s are bustling and the kids are off from school (oh the joy)!

Whether you have a busy week ahead, or the World is your oyster for the next 7 days, here’s our latest playlist full of summer smashes and mood boosting melodies to brighten up your week!
Here we go!

#Monday Moving
Katrina & The Waves – Walking On Sunshine.

Here at UnCOVered, we love a bit of Monday motivation! The best way to tackle the start of a new week is to stay positive and just go for it – the weekend will be here before you know it! Now, there can’t be many better ways to get you moving on a Monday than this summer classic – we dare you not to smile after this one!

“I used to think maybe you loved me, now, baby, I’m sure
And I just can’t wait till the day when you knock on my door
Now every time I go for the mailbox, gotta hold myself down
‘Cause I just can’t wait till you write me you’re coming around

Now I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
I’m walking on sunshine, whoa
And don’t it feel good
Hey, all right now
And don’t it feel good
Hey, yeah”

#Teen Tuesday
The Vaccines – Teenage Icon

In your teenage years the summer holidays are always ones to remember – a real chunk of quality time to spend with your friends and loved ones. Good times, agreed? In homage to this, and keeping the tempo high and good vibes to glide you into Tuesday, here’s a modern indie anthem from rockers The Vaccines.

“Reserved and shy, your average guy,
No piercing stare, just out of shape with messy hair,
But I always figured I was somebody in wait,
And now I’m guessing that my moment must be late cause I’m here, oh

I’m no teenage icon,
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
I’m nobody’s hero.”

#Wednesday Wind-Down
Sam Feldt feat. Kimberly Anne – Show Me Love

We’ve arrived at Wednesday already, and we feel you deserve a little mid-week chill time. Keeping with those summer vibes that you’ve hopefully been feeling so far this week – here’s the latest version of a dance classic, Show Me Love. This is a real laid-back take on the song, perfect for a summers evening.

“It’s been so long since
I’ve touched the wanting hand
I’ll put my love on the line,
Yes I hope you’ll understand
So, baby if you want me,
You’ve got to show me love
Words are so easy to say, but
You’ve got to show me love
But, you’ve got to show me love”

#Thursday Fortune
Bruno Mars – Treasure

Why not use this Thursday to give you that last push into the upcoming weekend, and start thinking about all those plans you may have over the next couple of days. This feel-good performance from Bruno Mars at last years Brit Awards ceremony should be just the ticket, hopefully making your Thursday a golden one. Get it… treasure – golden… oh, never mind!

“Treasure, that is what you are
Honey, you’re my golden star
You know you can make my wish come true
If you let me treasure you
If you let me treasure you

#Friday Freedom
Disclosure feat. Gregory Porter – Holding On

Ready for that Friday feeling? Hopefully the time has flown by, and you can now enjoy the weekend in all its glory! If you’re planning on letting your hair down and busting some moves tonight, then Disclosure’s latest release will make you shake it. Sh-shake it!

“But it’s holding on
And it’s holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can’t fake it
It keeps holding on
And it’s holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can’t shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it”

#Stereo Saturday
Stereophonics – Dakota

Whether you’re doing the chores, having some friends over or getting ready for a big night out; Saturdays are the perfect opportunity to have a good old sing-a-long. We personally love belting out a rock anthem here at UnCOVered and this Stereophonics classic is a real winner!

“Thinking back, thinking of you
Summertime think it was June
Yeah think it was June
Laying back, head on the grass
Chewing gum having some laughs
Yeah having some laughs.”

#Sunday Sweet Tones
Jessie Ware – Say You Love Me (Alex Adair Remix)

All the hustle and bustle of the past week comes to a head on Sunday, and it gives many of us a day to unwind and prepare to do it all over again! Let the sweet, soothing sound of Jessie Ware enable you to spend your Sunday doing something fantastic… very little!

“Just say you love me, just for today
And don’t give me time ’cause that’s not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins”
