The Feegood Mix

IT seems, rather predictably, the summer is over and is being…

replaced by something much more ‘British’. With the declining weather and cool breeze: a lot of people I know are unhappy or unwell; going through some tough times and battling to get back to their best. In response to that; I have been looking through some of the songs that put a smile on my face – those tunes that get me uplifted and dig deep. Mixing 1990s club anthems with some classic cuts: a compendium of serotonin-building jams that should banish the pre-winter blues and bring some sunshine back.

I hope the list – or sub-sections of it – have helped reduce the fatigue, sadness and depression – if only for a little while. Music has that transformative power: in a time where there is still too much introspective and insular music – we need to celebrate the songs and artists that go the extra mile to create a smile. Play the list and suggest your own choices: it would be great to add some more to the above.
