January is a bad month for music, I don’t know why, it is almost always is. There used to be an old joke that you should release a song in January, because you’ll probably get to number one, partly because it was true. I have not listened to much new music, but Ed Sheeran has an album released with two songs sitting at #1 and #2, with my favourite of the two being Shape Of You, which I think is a grower for me. Zayn and Taylor Swift also have a song which features in the 50 Shades sequal, 50 Shades Darker called I Don’t Wanna Live Forever, I’ve only listened to it once and I didn’t like it too much.
With that said, here is my playlist for January. Not too much that’s new, since I have not listened to much new music.
Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You
Sia – Move Your Body
Sean Paul F/ Dua Lipa – No Lie
Dua Lipa – Be The One
Machine Gun Kelly x Camila Cabello – Bad Things
Naughty Boy F/ Kyla & Popcaan) – Should’ve Been Me
For December this year I’ve decided to come up with a playlist specifically for New Year’s Eve. That means bangers, party songs, club tracks and anthems. I usually only write a playlist with new music, but I thought I had to do a party playlist for December, and share some of my favourite tracks new and old.
So I have decided to split it up into a few different parts. Current hits, 90’s classics, random pop bangers and hip hop/RnB. That pretty much sums up all the music I like and that I think is good for a great night. If you’re looking to kickstart your New Year’s Eve before the main event, or even want a playlist for the night, here’s my favourite songs which I think will make the night go off with a bang.

That little list should give you some inspiration for your own party playlist! If you wanna listen to all these tracks, I’ve created a playlist with them in below.
It is almost December! Fashionably late, here’s my music playlist for November. The good news is that I have been listening to more new music, so I’ve been able to add tracks to it, as well as removing some older ones which I no longer listen to so much. My favourites this month which have carried over from October are 24K Magic from Bruno Mars, and Rebecca & Fiona – Shotgun. New tracks I love which I’ve added are Clean Bandit & Anne Marie F/ Sean Paul – Rockabye which has been number 1 in the UK singles chart and I’ve been liking it for a couple of weeks.
Here’s this month’s playlist in full.
Clean Bandit & Anne Marie F/ Sean Paul – Rockabye
Daya – Sit Still, Look Pretty
Charli XCX F/ Lil Yachty – After The Afterparty
Neiked – Sensual
The Vamps & Matoma – All Night
David Guetta, Cedric Gervais & Chris Willis – Would I Lie To You
It’s been a pretty odd month for music for me this one! I have listened to lots of older music, and some of the newer music I’ve been listening to is good, but I don’t have one stand out track at the moment. This week I’ve heard some new tracks from Professor Green and his latest track “One Eye On The Door”, as well as the new one from Rebecca And Fiona, “Shotgun”.
Here’s just some of the music which I’ve been listening to in September, with a few brand new fresh tracks which I am really liking. Rebecca & Fiona came back with Drugstore Lovin’ in August and I am still listening to that a lot, but I have added a couple of new tracks, including the Sia track with Kendrick Lamar, and the new ones from Krept & Konan and Calvin Harris.
A brand new song which I only recently heard is Sthlm Nights by Peg Parnevik, and I really like it. I’ve only heard it once or twice, but it feels like I am going to like this one a lot. Another track I added was Daddy Yankee, Shaky Shaky. I don’t feel it’s one of his better tracks, but it’s had over 200m plays on YouTube in only 2 months! I’ll give it a few more listens, it could be a grower. I’ve kept a couple of songs which are now old but I still listen to, including Era Istrefi, RedOne and Enrique Iglesias from the Summer.
For once in a long time I am relatively early for my August playlist, in that, it’s still August! 😛
I am feeling a bit sad because it ends the summer, and I love a good Summer anthem. But we have had a couple, and I’ve really been loving the Redone track, but it’s starting to sound a bit old now, possibly because I’ve played it so much in the past few months.
New entries include the brand new track from Rebecca and Fiona, Drugstore Lovin’ which is another great tune, and surprisingly also making the list is a Olly Murs track, and one featuring Justin Bieber. When I heard the Olly Murs track I thought it was really good, and didn’t recognise that it was him. I’ve also found some room for Olé by John Newman, which was written by Calvin Harris. There’s been so much talk about this track, from John Newman and Calvin Harris themselves saying it was “different”, and I never really liked it several weeks ago when I heard it. But yeah, it’s really growing on me, and I am really starting to like it.
From not listening to too much new music, I’ve been listening to a couple of old tracks and some even older! I have added them to the “Extras” section of the playlist below. I have had a strange love for UB40, which is unexplainable, and rediscovered tracks from The Bloodhound Gang, Fountains Of Wayne and my favourite Norwegian duo, M2M!
I think that this Summer there’s been some great music. I have been listening to RedOne and the Enrique Iglesias tracks quite a bit since last month, they are two summer bangers. The biggest track for me is still Cheap Thrills from Sia, it’s been around for a while now, but still a banger and Summer anthem. Another one added to the list is MILF$ from Fergie, the video is brilliant, if you haven’t seen it, you need to! 😀
Here’s my playlist for July.
Fergie – MILF$ – Moms I’d Like To Follow
Tinie Tempah F/ WizKid – Mamacita
Mike Perry F/ Shy Martin – The Ocean
Carlos Vives & Shakira – La Bicicleta
RedOne – Don’t You Need Somebody

Jennifer Lopez – Ain’t Your Mama
Imany F/ Filatov & Karas – Don’t Be So Shy
Era Istrefi – Bonbon
Martin Solveig F/ Tkay Maidza – Do It Right
Kungs & Cookin’ On 3 Burners – This Girl
Drake – One Dance
MØ – Final Song
