Music Playlist – June 2017

The Michael 84 Playlist

Sorry that the playlist is so late! June really got away from me, and I haven’t been listening to much new music, so there are not too many additions from the May playlist. As I guessed, I am still loving Despacito from Daddy Yankee & Luis Fonsi, I predicted it would be the song for the Summer a couple of months ago, and I’ll be right/already right.

Another track I have heard a lot is Wild Thoughts from DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. It samples Maria Maria by The Product GMB and Carlos Santana, if you think it sounds familiar that’s why 😀 Here’s my playlist for June 2017

  • DJ Khaled F/ Rihanna & Bryson Tiller
  • Carly Rae Jepson – Cut To The Feeling
  • Sigala & Ella Eyre – Came Here for Love
  • Luis Fonsi F/ Daddy Yankee – Despacito
  • J-AX & Fedez F/ T-Pain – Senza Pagare
  • Shakira – Chantaje
  • Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno, Zion & Lennox – Subeme La Radio
  • Plan B – In The Name Of Man
  • Lethal B F/ Skepta – I Win
  • Sean Paul – Body
  • Axwell /\ Ingrosso – More Than You Know
  • Camila Cabello – Crying in the Club
  • Young Thug, Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande – Heatstroke
  • Clean Bandit F/ Zara Larsson – Symphony
  • Kendrick Lamar – Humble

Music: May 2017 Playlist

The Michael 84 Playlist

Summer is here and it’s brought some great music! My May playlist has a few songs which I’ve been listening to for a while now, and features a few Summer bangers which I think I’ll be listening to all Summer long. The most notable is Despacito which has gone on to be a Worldwide smash already, even getting to no.1 in the UK which is incredible for a song which is in Spanish…OK so there’s a “Remix” version which has Justin Bieber on it which has him singing in English, and the original is better. I’ve even added in some Italian with J-Ax & Fedez, and the latest Enrique track is also a good song for May.

An older song which I have started to love is Chantaje from Shakira, it’s been around for a few months but only just went over 1 billion view on YouTube last month!

What’s your song for this Summer? Check out the full playlist below.

  • Luis Fonsi F/ Daddy Yankee – Despacito
  • J-AX & Fedez F/ T-Pain – Senza Pagare
  • Shakira – Chantaje
  • Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno, Zion & Lennox – Subeme La Radio
  • Plan B – In The Name Of Man
  • Lethal B F/ Skepta – I Win
  • Sean Paul – Body
  • Axwell /\ Ingrosso – More Than You Know
  • Camila Cabello – Crying in the Club
  • Burak Yeter – Tuesday
  • Young Thug, Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande – Heatstroke
  • Clean Bandit F/ Zara Larsson – Symphony
  • Kendrick Lamar – Humble
  • Stormzy – Cold
  • Lana Del Rey F/ The Weeknd – Lust For Life

Music: March 2017 Playlist

The Michael 84 Playlist

Late but is it great? It’s time for music and my March 2017 playlist!

It’s quite a big list, with lots of new additions, I guess that there’s been a lot more music over the past few weeks which I’ve been listening to which is fairly new or recently released. Added to the list are things like Ciao Adios from Anne-Marie, Martin Garrix & Dua Lipa – Scared To Be Lonely and a few songs which I’ve just heard over and over again in the last few weeks; Slide from Calvin Harris & Frank Ocean and Something Just Like This from The Chainsmokers & Coldplay which was debuted at The Brits ages ago.

You can see my playlist in full below.

Music: February Playlist

The Michael 84 Playlist

A quiet January always leads to a much better February as far as music is concerned.

Did you see The BRITS? It was pretty good this year! There were performances by Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Little Mix which were good, some collaborations from Ed Sheeran with Stormzy and Coldplay with The Chainsmokers, and probably the best of the night, Chris Martin singing a duet with George Michael on video which was really powerful.

For the playlist this month I have a couple of new entries, as well as some of the tracks which I have been listening to remaining in the list.

  • Rag & Bone Man – Human
  • Stormzy – Big For Your Boots
  • The Chainsmokers – Paris
  • Alma – Dye My Hair
  • Lana Del Rey – Love
  • Jax Jones – You Don’t Know Me
  • Lethal Bizzle F/ Giggs & Flowdan – Round Here
  • Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You
  • Sia – Move Your Body
  • Dua Lipa – Be The One
  • Machine Gun Kelly x Camila Cabello – Bad Things
  • Naughty Boy F/ Kyla & Popcaan) – Should’ve Been Me
  • Tinie Tempah F/ Tinashe – Text From Your Ex
  • The Weekend F/ Daft Punk – Starboy
  • Bruno Mars – 24k Magic

Music Playlist – January 2017

The Michael 84 Playlist

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
  • Tinie Tempah F/ Tinashe – Text From Your Ex
  • Clean Bandit & Anne Marie F/ Sean Paul – Rockabye
  • The Weekend F/ Daft Punk – Starboy
  • Bruno Mars – 24k Magic

New Year’s Eve 2016 Playlist – Bangers & Hits

The Michael 84 Playlist

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.

Michael 84 Playlist – September 2016

The Michael 84 Playlist

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.

Here’s my September playlist:

  • Sia F/ Kendrick Lamar – The Greatest
  • Krept & Konan – Dunya
  • Imany feat. Filatov & Karas – Don’t Be So Shy
  • Peg Parnevik – Sthlm Nights
  • Calvin Harris – My Way
  • Ellie Goulding – Still Falling For You
  • Daddy Yankee – Shaky Shaky
  • Rebecca And Fiona – Drugstore Lovin’
  • DJ Snake F/ Justin Bieber – Let Me Love You
  • Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha – In The Name Of Love
  • The Chainsmokers F/ Halsey – Closer
  • John Newman – Olé
  • Fergie – MILF$ – Moms I’d Like To Follow
  • RedOne – Don’t You Need Somebody
  • Enrique Iglesias F/ Wisin – Duele el Corazon
  • Era Istrefi – Bonbon
