My August 2020 mixtape is bursting with classic summer tunes and new music for your ear lobes.
I was late updating the Mixtape section of the website this month as I had a total crisis of confidence. I spent the first few days of August on a 600 mile round trip to Scotland and had tried in vain to curate a playlist for the journey.
I threw together a whole load of hip hop, RnB, classic soul and Motown – my go-to mash up of easy listening. And it kinda worked, although it felt old and over played.
To make matters worse, my boyfriend put together a kick-ass playlist which charted his musical tastes through the decades – including influences from his parents, school mates, college, jobs and pre, during and post uni.
I’m not going to lie. I learned so much about him from that playlist. Stuff I definitely never knew before and while busting some serious car seat moves up the M6, I also felt massively inadequate.
So, dear readers. I want you to know I’ve put more effort into the August playlist. While you don’t know the story behind each and every track – just know that they’ve all made me abundantly happy at one point or another. I hope one or two tracks make you smile too. Happy listening.
