What's on your Playlist?
I'm 50 on Friday and I'm having a party on Saturday to celebrate.
Currently, I'm trying to put together the ultimate playlist for the party. I didn't realise quite how tricky this was before I started.
My problem is, I have 50 years worth of music going through my head, and picking the right songs for when people are eating, drinking and hopefully dancing is proving challenging.
There are certain tracks that have to be on my playlist, no matter what.
These tracks are my all time favourites.
The Killers - Mr Brightside
Muse - Feeling Good
Josh Wink - A Higher State of Consciousness
Garbage - Cherry Lips
But I also like a bit of Stormzy, Wiley, Tinie Tempah and Macklemore
I have a Ratpack 1950's theme so there has to be some Sammy Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin (to name but a few) and definitely some Elvis.
Gah. I did this to myself. Even as I type this I am listening to Iggy Azalea to see if she can 'Change Your Life'.
I have 9 hours to fill, I currently have over 14 hours worth of music and I'm still adding songs, last night I realised I can't live with out 'Fix Up Look Sharp' by Dizzie Rascal, yesterday it was Bang Bang with Jessie J etc, and 'Cake by the Ocean' by DNCE.
I wake up thinking about music and go to sleep doing the same.
So I am having to go through the list to decide if it the track is filler or killer.
Why can't I have everything? My guests will just have to stay all night and most of the next day to listen to all the music.
Problem solved. Yay.
What would you put on your playlist?
