The March/April Playlists

Two years ago this month, I started making monthly playlists on Spotify. You can imagine what happened when I was making well over 12 playlists a year, so at the end of 2015 I decided to condense them into every two months, only getting round to truly sorting all my playlists out at the end of last year. Yes- i’m so lazy it took me an entire year to do.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to look back on my March/April playlists from the past two years to see what I was listening to, and whether my music taste has changed any!
I won’t be going through every song, because this would end up an obscenely long post, but I will link each playlist below if you want to listen to them.

Music Top 10: February

And I am back with another thrilling instalment of my music top 10. I’m afraid that my concerns from last month that these would all feature the same songs is still somewhat true, but it’s almost all new ones in there, surprisingly! I listen to a lot of music, but I’m one of those terrible serial repeaters. You know, the people who listen to songs on repeat for hours and then get so sick of it they can’t bear to listen to the song anymore? Yep, that’s me.

1. Got Well Soon by Breton.

I’m sorry. I did think it was likely that this song would make a reappearance, because it’s still one of my absolute favourites right now. I wonder if i’ll ever get sick of it. I love Breton anyway, but that backing track is just sooooo good.  If you want to know what I said about it before, you can read my last post here.

Music Top 10: January

So I thought it would be fun, since I’m obsessed with music (listening, not playing… I have the musical talent of a block of wood) to start a ‘Top 10’ according to Last.Fm of the songs that I’ve been loving that month. Then I can look back on all the music i’ve been loving throughout the year, and everyone else can get a sort of music recommendation from me!

Fair warning, I am a serial repeater of songs. I listen to them over and over until I can’t stand to hear them anymore, so the likelihood of songs appearing in more than one month is extremely likely.

So without further ado, my top 10 played songs of January are:

1. Tears of Joy by Slow Club

I don’t think words can actually describe my intense love for this song. I am fully obsessed, and have been for at least 5 months. It’s chill, it’s unique and it’s easy to sing along to. Their entire album ‘Complete Surrender’ is incredible, but this one’s my favourite.
