Music Monday #7

To coincide with the realisation about leaving high school ten years ago, I thought it only fitting that this week’s Music Monday should feature a few of the number ones from 2005.

Music Monday #6

After my dream come true trip to London to see Cats, it got me thinking about how much I heart musicals – yes, not the coolest of admissions, but hey, I did used to want to be a dancer.

So, to celebrate my love of musicals, this week’s Music Monday is a selection of the finest songs from film and stage.

Music Monday #1

As something a little different, I’d like to introduce the first Music Monday – a post series that pretty much explains itself.

I toyed with the idea of having a Spotify playlist plugin, but where’s the fun in that? There are music videos for a reason (especially when that reason is Adam Levine), so I’ve stuck with the ye olde YouTube embeds.

So, without further ado, here is your Monday playlist – enjoy the songs, marvel at my taste in music (ironically or not, your call) and above all, have a bit of a perve:

The Courteeners: Are You In Love With A Notion?

Semisonic: Closing Time

The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter

Eagles: Hotel California

Death Cab for Cutie: I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Fleetwood Mac: Monday Morning

The Black Keys: Next Girl

Clean Bandit: Rather Be

The Kooks: Seaside

Maroon 5: Sugar
