Music Playlist: January 2018

The Michael 84 Playlist

It’s almost February so that means it’s time for my January Playlist! The very first playlist for 2018, and as usual there hasn’t been too much happening in music in January. There’s been a couple of songs I have been listening to, the most played isn’t a new song, it’s Bella y Sensual from Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam, and was released in the Autumn of last year.

I have decided to make the playlist from scratch, so it doesn’t include any songs which I’ve previous had in the playlist. They are all new additions, including Bruno Mars, Craig David and the Eminem track with Ed Sheeran. There’s some brand new tracks too, with Dreamer from Axwell & Ingrosso, and the new Zedd track.

The BRITS are coming in a couple of weeks, and we should have some new music in the coming weeks which will hopefully be exciting.

Here’s the playlist for this month in full.

  • Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam – Bella y Sensual
  • Eminam F/ Ed Sheeran – River
  • Bruno Mars F/ Cardi B – Finesse
  • Dua Lipa – IDGAF
  • Sigrid – Strangers
  • Diplo F/ Mo – Get It Right
  • Craig David F/ Bastille – I Know You
  • Luis Fonsi, Demi Lovato – Échame La Culpa
  • Martin Garrix & David Guetta – So Far Away
  • Ofenbach vs. Nick Waterhouse – Katchi
  • Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey – The Middle
  • Axwell Λ Ingrosso – Dreamer
  • Enrique Iglesias – El Baño

December Music Playlist & End Of Year Chart 2017

The Michael 84 Playlist

Have you had enough of the Christmas songs yet? 😀

We wait all year to hear some Christmas songs, and as soon as it’s time to play them, we seem to get sick almost immediately. I have to say that I like the Christmas songs more and more each year, maybe it’s a sign of getting old? 😀

I usually write a playlist every month and also do an end of year chart, but I thought I would combine the two in this post, so first of all here’s my playlist, which has to include some Christmas music.

  • Mud – Lonely This Christmas
  • Wizzard – I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday
  • Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
  • Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
  • East 17 – Stay Another Day
  • Wham! – Last Christmas
  • Rita Ora – Anywhere
  • Big Shaq – Man’s Not Hot
  • Bebe Rexha – feat. Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be
  • Robin Schulz F/ Hugel – I Believe I’m Fine
  • Fergie – Save It Till Morning

End Of Year Chart 2017

My end of year chart isn’t a chart, it’s just a playlist. I usually do a chart or rank the songs, but I don’t think there’s much point. Everyone knows the best song of the year, my favourite, Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee (Not the terrible Bieber version). I have liked Reggaetón music since I spent the Summer in Mallorca way back in 2004, it’s never really been a big thing in the UK since most lyrics are in Spanish, but it’s had it’s moments, Gasolina by Reggaetón king Daddy Yankee in 2005, and has had other influences even when most people will be unaware (Don Omar had a track in Grand Theft Auto IV). 2017 seen the resurgence of reggaeton music to a global audience, even though it will be seen as a fad to most of the UK, for the people who like it, it’s always going to be good music. So here’s my end of year playlist, with a lot of reggaetón and latin influence in there!

  • Daddy Yankee & Luis Fonsi – Despacito
  • Shakira – Me Enamoré
  • Jennifer Lopez F/ Gente de Zona – Ni Tú Ni Yo
  • J. Balvin, Willy William – Mi Gente
  • Ofenbach – Be Mine
  • Axwell /\ Ingrosso – More Than You Know
  • Little Mix F/ Stormzy – Power
  • Bombai – Solo Si Es Contigo
  • Maluma – Felices Los 4
  • DJ Khaled F/ Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – Wild Thoughts
  • Carly Rae Jepson – Cut To The Feeling
  • Sigala & Ella Eyre – Came Here for Love
  • Shakira – Chantaje
  • Enrique Iglesias ft. Descemer Bueno, Zion & Lennox – Subeme La Radio
  • Camila Cabello – Crying in the Club
  • Camila Cabello – Havana
  • J-AX & Fedez F/ T-Pain – Senza Pagare
  • Clean Bandit F/ Zara Larsson – Symphony
  • The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This
  • Little Mix F/ Machine Gun Kelly – No More Sad Songs
  • Zedd F/ Alessia Cara – Stay
  • Stormzy – Big For Your Boots
  • Jax Jones – You Don’t Know Me
  • Ed Sheeran – Castle On The Hill
  • Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You

And that was it for 2017! I always love the summer hits and bangers, and thank god we had one this year! 2018 is next, let’s see what it’s got in store.

Playlist: November 2017 – What I’ve Been Listening To

The Michael 84 Playlist

Hey guys!

So I can’t believe that it’s already December! It’s definitely time to get those Christmas tunes on, we can all listen to all the cheesy songs we have to hear at least once a year, but will probably hear them until we’re sick of ’em! 😀

For the last month there doesn’t seem to be a lot of music to talk about, apart from one thing… N.E.R.D are back! They have released a new track, Lemon, with Rihanna, where she raps in the song. I love some of the tracks N.E.R.D have done in the past, some are real bangers, the sound is just so good! I remember the first time I heard one of the tracks which was Lapdance and I loved it, the video did probably help 😉 That was back in 2001, hard to believe that it was 16 years ago!

So I have been re-living my favourite N.E.R.D tracks, so I have to include them in the playlist.

Here’s the playlist which is quite small, in full.

  • Big Shaq – Man’s Not Hot
  • N.E.R.D & Rihanna – Lemon
  • David Guetta, Afro Jack, Charli XCX, French Montana – Dirty Sexy Money
  • Krept & Konan F/ Stormzy – Ask Flipz
  • Camila Cabello – Havana
  • Bebe Rexha – feat. Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be
  • Calvin Harris – feat. Kehlani, Lil Yachty – Faking It
  • J. Balvin, Willy William – Mi Gente
  • N.E.R.D – Lapdance
  • N.E.R.D – Rockstar
  • N.E.R.D – She Wants To Move
  • N.E.R.D F/ Nelly Furtado – Hot N Fun

Music Playlist: October 2017

The Michael 84 Playlist

Hey guys!

So I haven’t listened to much new music lately, I don’t think there’s been many big tracks at all. I haven’t really been looking for any music to be honest, but it seems that there’s a serious lack of anything which has made an impact. There’s no big anthem track, no catchy pop track or epic dance track which is fresh, and everything in hip hop recently seems to be really slow beats which isn’t too great.

So here’s my playlist with a few additions, including Bebe Rexha and the latest Calvin Harris track. I hope that we have some good music to listen to in the next month or so!

  • Bebe Rexha – feat. Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be
  • Calvin Harris – feat. Kehlani, Lil Yachty – Faking It
  • Kay One F/ Pietro Lombardi – Señorita
  • Robin Schulz F/ Hugel – I Believe I’m Fine
  • Fergie – Save It Till Morning
  • J. Balvin, Willy William – Mi Gente
  • Avicii F/ Rita Ora – Lonely Together
  • Maluma – Felices Los 4
  • Becky G – Mayores
  • Shakira F/ Nicky Jam – Perro Fiel
  • Jay Z – 4:44
  • Katy Perry F/ Nicki Minaj – Swish Swish
  • Rita Ora – Your Song
  • Kendrick Lamar F/ Rihanna – Lolalty
  • Stefflon Don F/ French Montana – Hurtin Me

So this will be my last playlist of the Summer, which is kind of the same as last month with a few new tracks added it. 4:44 from Jay Z is a track which I’ve been listening to a lot, and I have to include Rita Ora Your Song, because it must be my song, it’s all I’ve heard for the past few weeks! :mrgreen:

Music Playlist – July 2017

The Michael 84 Playlist

Can you believe July is almost over already!? I have not listened to much new music, and have been listening to the same songs I have for all over the Summer. I have noticed that the Enrique Iglesias track “Subeme La Radio” has now entered the UK charts on iTunes, but of course you heard it first from my playlist a few months ago, right? 😉

One song which has been on my playlist for months is More Than You Know from Axwell and Ingrosso, but I hadn’t gave it much play time in comparison to other tracks, but lately I have been listening to it more and more, it really is an ultimate dance track for this Summer, and the video is cool too!

Since it’s the Summer and with the success of so many reggaeton and Latin style music, I’ve added some more to my playlist which are perfect for the Summer. You can see the full playlist below.

  • Shakira – Me Enamoré
  • Jennifer Lopez F/ Gente de Zona – Ni Tú Ni Yo
  • Little Mix F/ Stormzy – Power
  • Kamailya – Make Me Feel

  • Maluma – Felices Los 4
  • Rudimental F/ James Arthur – Sun Comes Up
  • DJ Khaled F/ Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – Wild Thoughts
  • Carly Rae Jepson – Cut To The Feeling

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

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
