I never quite managed to do a monthly play-list last month so lets see this one as a March/April music mixtape. With technical difficulties over the last few weeks, I wasn’t listening to much music to be honest but since being reunited with my Spotify account I do not know how I survived without! Although the last couple of months has saw me basically repeating the same music again and again, anyone else go through stages of that? I was lucky enough to go and see 5 Seconds of Summer live this month so I have loved replaying their album. I am also still obsessed with The 1975’s new album, Change of Heart is definitely my favourite track off the album and if I could listen to it over and over again, I would! Definitely an album worth playing! Alongside those two, I am also loving Hymn for the Weekend by Coldplay which is such a catchy song and Coldplay never fail to impress!

So I usually do my monthly playlist post at the end of the month however lets be honest the playlist for this month of course is nothing but Christmas music so it would be slightly silly to post it after Christmas, right?
Anyway we are less than a week til Christmas day *shocked face* and one thing to get me in the festive spirit is to listen to some good old Christmas tunes, oh yes! I have made a little Spotify playlist you can check out below full of some of my fave Christmas songs.
There is a bit of everything, some newer songs from Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson and Coldplay and of course some old classics from the likes of Elton John and Band Aid. And not forgetting a few tunes by Mr Christmas himself, Mr Buble – if you haven’t listened to his Christmas album you are missing out, his covers of some great Christmas classics are perfection!
What is on your December Playlist?
One of my favorite albums at the moment is In a Perfect World, the debut album by Irish folk-rock band Kodaline. I find it difficult to find an album were I like every song on it and this album does quite that, while I have my favorites every song is worth listening to and I won’t be pressing skip at any time. The album overall is quite folk/indie style and most songs are quite peaceful and relaxing so I wouldn’t recommend it for a party playlist but its very handy while cooking or just relaxing as it has that perfect calming mood. There is 11 songs on the album or if you buy through itunes there are 15 songs. Every song is worth a listen however I would recommend a few: first track One Day which is quite a slow and peaceful track, High Hopes which again is a slow number and also a bit of a tear-jerker, Its not all glum though more upbeat tracks like Love Like This and Way Back When which I love and are full of positive and happy vibes. You also may have heard All I want which featured in the soundtrack and movie The Fault in Our Stars. Also check out their cover of Latch by Disclosure which is just fantastic and beautiful. If you are a fan of Coldplay or Mumford and sons you may quite like these guys.
5/5 for me!
