Back To School Playlist

Summer is now officially over and it's back to school time. So whether you are just returning or, like me, starting at a new school, I've created a playlist to try and fight off the back to school blues. Here we go:

Summertime Sadness Remix - Lana Del Ray vs Cedric Gervais: I mean, how fitting. I love the remix of this song and is definitely more upbeat than we are used to hearing from Lana. She has a beautiful voice and mixed with the uplifting beat, this will wake me first thing for school.

Cool- Le Youth: Now, usually when a song claims to be cool, it isn't in the slightest any good. However, when I heard this on the radio not too long ago, I thought was actually cool. They lyrics says it is, so it shouldn't, but it is. Confusing? It's just a good song, lets leave it at that.

Lost Generation- Rizzle Kicks: I'm a huge fan of Rizzle Kicks! I love how they mix rap with old-school beats. This track is the first release from their second album and I really can't wait to hear more. I have Lost Generation on repeat. I've also just downloaded the new album too, so excited to have a listen!

Don't Stop- Nina Nesbitt: This is a cover of the Fleetwood Mac song and is used in the new John Lewis advert. It's a real feel good song which is really what you need having to wake up so early again (you can really sense my excitement) and Nina has a really lovely voice. Great cover.

Burn- Ellie Goulding: Well, it it isn't number one for no reason! The beat is infectious and the lyrics get stuck in my head so easily. It's on it's third week at number one in the UK and Ellie so deserves it. Brilliant hit!

Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine)- Klangakarussell feat. Will Heard: This is quite a laid back song with a chilled summer vibe to it. Great for relaxing to.

Lily Allen- Smile: I found this for 59p on iTunes, really the only reason this song is here. I love a bargin and I love the song. You always need an older song/ classic on a playlist and this one is my one for this playlist. Haven't heard it for a long time and I'm just loving it. Don't you just live rediscovering songs!

Well, there's the soundtrack for my bus journey sorted. It's only a short one as I know my journey isn't all that long. What songs are you loving at the moment?
