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.

Cry Me A River – Jack Savoretti
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!
Wild Card – Nashville Cast (Lennon Stella)
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
Terrible Love (Alternate Version) – The National
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
Shotgun Mouthwash – High Contrast
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!
