Music

Music has always played a huge role in my life, forming a backdrop to almost everything I do. There are the songs I sing along with while doing the dishes, the tunes that take me back to dance clubs like the legendary Shoom and my love of Reggae and memories of the Jah Shaka sound system and the free festival scene of the early ’80s. From vinyl to mixtapes and cd’s and now in Spotify, I have been collecting music across every genre for over 40 years.

In these strange and isolating times, I have found myself increasingly missing the joy of sharing that music with friends, of shaking my hips in a crowd of smiling people.

So I’ve decided to embark on a little social media sharing project to share some of my musical pleasure.

I’m kicking off with a weekly Happy Dance playlist. Each week I’m going to compile 3 hours of tunes that have had my feet shuffling that week, into a session to enjoy over the weekend. These tunes will be arranged to take you on an energetic journey so best to turn off shuffle and get them in the arranged order.

Along with this I’m sharing a collaborative playlist, Happy Bucket, if you follow this one in Spotify you will then be able to add tunes for inclusion in future Happy Dance playlists and we can all enjoy sharing the music that gets our hips wiggling. It’s easy to follow a playlist on Spotify by clicking or tapping its heart icon.

 

I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoy sharing.
