Spring Music Playlist

I've spoken on my blog a lot about having a morning playlist to wake yourself up to so after the wonderful people behind Spotify* got in touch with me asking if I'd like to make a playlist and a blog post about  my favourite morning songs this Spring, I was thrilled and jumped at the chance. Here is a list of some of the songs featured on my Spring playlist...

|| What Is Spotify? ||

Spotify* is a music, podcast, and video streaming service that was officially launched on the 7th of October in 2008. It was developed by startup Spotify AB in Stockholm, Sweden and it provides DRM–protected content from record labels and media companies. Spotify* is a freemium service; basic features are free with advertisements or limitations, while additional features, such as improved streaming quality and music downloads, are offered via paid subscriptions. However, my playlist is free to listen to - yey!

Spotify* is available in most of Europe, most of America, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Asia. It is available for most modern devices, including Windows, macOS, and Linux computers, as well as iOS, Windows Phone and Android smartphones and tablets so there are no excuses to check out this awesome service!

  13. I love the idea of making a playlist. I have a couple that I have made on youtube and they're so handy and makes it much easier to find your fave songs. I like some of the songs you have mentioned too! Especially Hey Soul Sister, Mister Brightside and Not Afraid. Great post!

  14. You can't beat a good soundtrack! Nothing gets you in the mood for a cold drink in the sunshine than playing some summery tunes! The Killers and the Zutons are essentials for me, so happy to see that they appear on your playlist too! I definitely need to register for a Spotify account!
