Ah, yes – I’m one of those strange, strange people who actually enjoys that first day of the work week.
First, it only happens once a week which is so lovely – I think if we had more of them I might suddenly understand where the rest of you are coming from.
Secondly, that feeling 5 o’clock feeling when the day is done and under your belt; there’s no better day to appreciate that than a Monday.
I usually spend part of my day reminiscing about the good fun I’ve had over the weekend: editing and posting pictures, reaching out to new friends, and tracking down any tonal treasures that got stuck in my head over the weekend.
I’m not sure who came up with the idea that Monday‘s always had to be manic – or that a little mania on Monday was a bad thing;I had an incredibly relaxing weekend (all things considered, being me and all…) and I’m feeling pretty mellow at the moment. But regardless of where your weekend dropped you off, I have some jams, new and old, to pick you up and chill you out. Each playlist is about half an hour, so why don’t you treat yourself to some fun on your lunch break and take a listen? After all, it is a Monday – you deserve it!
This one is for the gogetters and anyone looking to pick it up a notch or rock it out:
- Dog Blood – Next Order
- Adventure Club ft Kai – Need Your Heart (Candyland Remix)
- Sub Focus ft Kenzie May – Falling Down (xKore Remix)
- Bingo Players – L’Amour
- Zedd ft. Matthew Koma – Spectrum (A-Trak + Clockwork Remix)
- Gareth Emery – Tokyo (Pixel Cheese Remix)
And for everyone else – maybe your hangover is too loud today, or you and the snooze button just became best friends this morning; either way, I’m sure you’d love to pull a Grandma’s Boy and take a nap under your desk. In lieu of doing that, and potentially getting fired – why not listen to this mix and try and make it through the day.
