And just like that, January is over YIPEE! How are we all? I hope you’re all doing well. I, for one, am very excited that the warmer weather is one month closer, and not even a whole month at that as February is just that little bit shorter. It’s been 9 months since the OG Tunes To Get Through Lockdown playlist. If you want to give it a spin, you can do so here. When I created the last playlist, I would never have thought we would now be in our 3rd Lockdown here in the UK. I think it’s fair to say we are all pros at staying home now? The creation of Vol. 2 has most definitely been overdue. January is always a pretty grey month for a number of reasons so I wanted to make sure this playlist had hip-shaking, toe-tapping and head-bobbing tunes on. You bet I have been passionately miming the words to many of these songs into my hairbrush microphone.
Basically, this was the playlist for me to hit play for an instant mood booster.
What’s Influencing This Playlist?
Well, I am VERY into Disco and Funk right now. I had Disco at the BBC on iPlayer on repeat, sadly it’s been removed now (😭) but you can watch the new version here. So I would say that has influenced a chunk of this playlist. Basically, I just really wanted it to have those feel good, forget everything and have a boogie vibe.
Again though, we have a pretty eclectic mix… but I personally love that in a playlist. I want to be disco dancing to Chic one minute, and passionately belting out Harry Style’s ‘Golden’ the next (let’s just take a moment for ‘Fine Line’ actually).
I hope you enjoy this playlist and feel free to follow on Instagram so you can keep going back.
