I can’t believe it’s been a year since I last did a music post! I’m taking part in Race for Life on Sunday (please sponsor me here if you can spare a small donation for a big cause!) and added a few upbeat songs to my running playlist to help with the training:
I adore London Grammar and their songs are beautiful in their original, ballad-y form. But this remix is a match made in heaven.
This is one of my favourite new tracks from the past year, it’s so much fun and I can’t help but grin when I hear it. Extra points for the cheeky cow bell 😀
From the very first time I heard Four Tet’s remix of Opus, it’s been right up there as one of my favourite pieces of music of all time. It’s so good I have to stop what I’m doing, close my eyes and just enjoy – unless I’m running, conveniently 🙂
I’m not usually a drum & bass kinda girl but I’m happy to make an exception for this track. A great driving rhythm, perfect for motivation!
Although running more often has made me an even bigger dance music fan than usual, a couple of other tracks have grabbed my attention:
I like this song; I like the story. But I absolutely LOVE the part towards the end where it drops down quiet and builds up into that glorious guitar solo.
My favourite sentimental song of the past year, perfectly encapsulating the feeling of admitting defeat on a relationship.
Since mentioning Take Me to Church in a previous post, I’ve become quite a Hozier fan, buying his self-titled album and enjoying many a Youtube video of his live performances. From Eden is my favourite of his songs, and I also like this Live Lounge cover of Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down.
And to finish up, a lovely song about friendship. This one really makes me smile 🙂
