Songs that helped to get us through lockdown | A feel good playlist

29 July 2020

Music was a massive saviour for me during lockdown. When I'm feeling unmotivated, a bit down about the world and need a pick me up, I always turn to music. Whether that's a bit of ABBA or Harry Styles, my mood pretty much instantly changes from bad to good. 
As you may have seen from previous playlist posts on my other blog, my taste is quite varied as I can like a song that is old or in the current charts but as long as it's a feel good tune then it ticks all the boxes.
I also took part in the 30 day song challenge created by Zoella so if you saw those on my instagram stories, it might be quite similar to this! I rediscovered so many songs I hadn't heard for years and now can't get the lyrics out of my head. Please tell me I'm not the only one whose brain is about 80% song lyrics haha. 
Be prepared for the most random mixture but listen to any of these and you'll be holding a hairbrush for a microphone before you even know it. 

1. Dancing Queen- ABBA 
My number 1 song forever.

2. Bring it all back- S Club 7 
I will always ask Alexa to play this if my mood needs a boost.

3. Style- Taylor Swift 

4. Shotgun- George Ezra 
(politely asking if we can rewind back to summer 2018 with the world cup and my first trip to portugal, this song was on all the time and I miss it)

5. Star Girl- Mcfly

6. Mr. Blue Sky- Electric Light Orchestra 

7. Adore you- Harry Styles 
(I love it too but this one is for my mum, played on Alexa almost everyday and repeated 4 times everytime)

8. Heartbreak weather- Niall Horan

9. Black and white- Niall Horan
(totes emosh)

10. She moves in her own way- The Kooks 
(a classic)

11. 5, 6, 7, 8- Steps 
School disco vibes anyone?

12. You're my number one- S Club 7

13. Anything but ordinary- Avril Lavigne 
I went through an Avril stage in April and I have no regrets. 

14. Yellow- Coldplay

15. We built this city- Starship 
(or on sausage rolls, if you know you know)

16. All my friends- Byron Langley

17. Blinding Lights- The weeknd 
I can't listen to this song anymore without thinking of the Tiktok dance but had to include it as it was in my head for the first 3 weeks of lockdown haha.

18. You belong to me- Taylor Swift 
A lunchtime jam session with my sister will always include this, I need to polish up on the lyrics!!

19. Unwritten- Natasha Bedingfield 
(what a tune) Alexa, repeat please.

21. I'll be there for you- The Rembrandts 
I hear this song multiple times a day thanks to Friends, not complaining though and yes, I will always clap along.

22. Treat people with kindness- Harry Styles 
(are we seeing a reoccurring theme?)

23. We're all in this together- High School Musical Cast 
I watched the films back at the start of Lockdown and I'm obsessed all over again.

24. Riptide- Vance Joy 
I love to run to this.

25. Good as hell- Lizzo 
This needs no explanation.

26. Waka Waka- Shakira 
If you're not up dancing at this point...

27. Where is the love- Black Eyed Peas 
(fun fact: this song was number 1 on the day I was born)

28. Want you back- HAIM
The ultimate girl group.

29. Dog days are over- Florence + The Machine

This playlist wouldn't be complete without a bit of Whitney and what a song to end it on.
