Back to work: fight the end-of-holiday blues with our perfect playlist
Holidays over, but you can’t face the idea of heading back to the office? Read on for our top ten tracks to beat the post-vacation blues.
1) Zara Larsson - Lush Life
“Gotta get back in the groove/ What matters is now / Getting right back in the mood...” Even the lyrics to this song make it the perfect soundtrack to your first day back at work. Up and at ‘em, tiger!
2) The Shadowboxers - Build The Beat
It’s impossible not to want to get up and dance as soon as you hear the first bars of this 80s-inspired jam, which sounds like Prince meets Stevie Wonder and a pinch of Duran Duran. What’s not to live?
3) Jungle - Busy Earnin’
If the title of this song doesn’t motivate you to get out of the door, watching soul collective Jungle’s unbelievable choreography in the video for ‘Busy Earning’’ sure will.
4) Jessie J - Domino
If you’re just looking to put a smile on your face, listening to Jessie J’s ‘Domino’s just as you’re heading out the door will get your day off to a great start. Hairbrush microphone optional.
5) Tuxedo - Do It
Finally, if you just can’t stop yourself from thinking about the weekend in spite of all your best efforts, watching Tuxedo’s ‘Do It’ five minutes before you clock off Friday evening is a shortcut to a good mood. You’re welcome.
