The Monthly Playlist: July


Although I’ve been busy pottering away monthly over on Spotify, it’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my monthly playlists (with more specific ‘Lockdown Listens‘ taking priority over the funny last few months)…

Anyway! To start your weekend, I thought I’d share some of the songs I’ve had on repeat over the last 31 days. Joe recently acknowledged that he does tend to hear the same things played again and again- but it’s because when I come across, or rediscover something I love, it is ALL I WILL PLAY (which is why making playlists serves me so well).

These playlists take me back to certain points in the month- small moments or afternoons at my desk, car drives with my brother in the country and lazy afternoons in the garden. This month is a real mix of some golden oldies (I am a seventies radio DJ thank you for asking, and yes that is Barry Blue on the playlist) and some newer discoveries- and I hope you enjoy repeating it as much as I have…

    I always look forward to these posts – your playlists are so so good! I love how eclectic they are, as my own taste of music can be quite random (although I do tend to play ’70s yacht rock songs on repeat, haha). As a huge Elvis Presley fan, I was also excited to see The Lady Loves Me featured on this month’s list – it’s such a fun song from an equally fun, if a bit cheesy, movie (Viva Las Vegas – watch it if you feel like a ’60s throwback with some very good songs!!).
    I’m going to add some of these to my Spotify now :).

    Oh my goodness, you had me at Nick Cave. One of my fave songs ever! I can see I will be playing this list on repeat!
