Delayed and a little short for two months, but better late than never! Here’s what I’ve been playing non stop for the start of 2017.

Jack is no stranger to this playlist. His gravelly tones seduced me last year. I’ve been playing his tracks ever since and going to see him live a second time at the Royal Festival Hall later in March. This version taps in to the heartbreak in a way that JT’s didn’t.
Favourite lyric: Now you tell me you need me / When you call me on the phone
I’m still gutted at his loss. Just, ugh, such a talent. Thankfully this wonderful song has been a huge motivation in getting me out of bed/conquering the world/accompanying my everyday exercise routine/general strutting around house in my pants. The video is filled with supermodels and just general 90’s excess. It’s a delight.
Favourite lyric: Will you stop playing that radio of yours? I’m trying to get some sleep!
Another Nashville hit that I got obsessed with this past season which is a little sassy and tongue in cheek. I love that it’s a little naughty but nice. We all have two sides to our personality, right?
Favourite lyric: I’m a wild card / I’m a sweetheart / I’ve got fever in my blood
How have I never heard of this band before? Thankfully a rather schmaltzy Nicholas Sparks movie played this (don’t judge me) and I fell in love. A thumping heartbeat of drums with soaring guitars and vocals does good things to my soul.
Favourite lyrics: But I won’t follow you into the rabbit hole / I said I would, but then I saw
Your shivered bones
I heard this on Instagram in a dance clip and was captivated by the funkier sound from the band, especially on this track with its brass section. It just makes me want to dance and that’s always a good thing.
Favourite lyric: Should it all fall down / You’ll have been my favourite mistake
Having only seen Trainspotting for the first time over Christmas (shut it, I know!) I grabbed the opportunity to see T2: Trainspotting on opening weekend for hubby’s birthday. I loved the film, loved how dark and grown up it was. I also really enjoyed the soundtrack. The film opens with this gem. I’m a huge fan of a dirty electro bass line and this has it in buckets.
Favourite lyric: A million little pieces will never be enough for you
Thanks for reading and listening!
