December Music Playlist & End Of Year Chart 2017

Sunday, 31st December, 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

Monday, 4th December, 2017

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

Saturday, 28th 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:

Monday, 31st 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

Tuesday, 11th July, 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

Monday, 29th May, 2017

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

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.

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

Music Playlist – January 2017

Sunday, 29th 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
