The February Playlist



Vol. 4: Northern at Heart


WITH February being such a short month…

this is the last edition of my weekly Playlist – until next Saturday, at least! The Brit Awards was on this week – I do not like it and feel it celebrates the worst of music – but would be remiss were I not to include a few live performances from the night. Given the fact Muse, Kasabian and, yes, Eminem have been confirmed as the headliners for the Reading and Leeds Festival – I include a fine song from each of those artists. Of course, there is the usual assortment of brand-new songs and videos and album tracks. Like every week, there will be something for everyone to get their teeth in. I am not sure whether the final days of February produce new songs but I will be keeping my eyes out.

So… what’s the reason behind the header for this edition of The February Playlist? Well, as the weather gets warmer and the days longer; I feel myself gravitating towards the people and opportunities further north. I have always had an affinity for those up north but never considered myself living there. I can relate a lot to the people and their personalities: their toughness and humour; the way they do things and how they see the world. That is perhaps best left for another day but it is something on my mind. To distract myself from possible life-changing decisions; I have enjoyed compiling a list of this week’s best new tracks and those songs that have slipped me by – some do get away from me!
