The Lockdown Listens: The Pick Me Up Playlist

And a glorious throwback Photo Booth laptop photo shoot, because I know how to create that #content!

I know there’s a million and one playlists that have been made to suit each individual’s lockdown experience, so hey- I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring and offer up my own too! A top 100 (ish) songs that will pretty much always pick me up- from quarantine to PMS and everything in-between- it’s almost always a sure bet.

Now, a heads up- it’s not an overly cool or curated playlist. There’s Steps, S Club and then Julie Andrews. But there’s also Pulp, Blood Orange and Tame Impala- so I guess it totally depends what your idea of ‘cool’ is, because whatever end of the spectrum it sits on- this has ‘cool’ no matter how you define it (I think? Oh god I’ve said too much and now the pressure is kicking in).

Anyway- I’ve learnt it’s hard to create the perfect pick me up playlist without it veering into very unusual territory- but I think… *think* it’s a start (although we did go from Miley Cyrus to Randy Newman to The Housemartins, so I’m not over-promising here). I’ll be adding to it on the regs because I know I’ve forgotten a heap of great songs- but if you’re perching your head out of the window for some lunch time rays, heading out for an endorphin fuelled jog, or wondering when to get out of bed- I hope this lifts you a little and you enjoy it!

Here’s the big ol’ link to it on Spotify too– I have about 5000 other playlists if this isn’t quite up your street too- happy listening!
