These songs might seem a little out of character by the usual angry Punk and angsty Post-Punk that I usually post on here. But my love for those genres is only a segment of the music that I love! I actually grew up on full diet of soul music and jazz. Well,
kind of – like most young’un’s I went through periods of everything from
DMC to The Eagles to Ray Charles. I memorised them all and would play
them each over and over through certain periods of time. But classic songs
by bands like The Supremes have managed to stick to me. I jump straight
to them when I want to sing and they always manage to make me smile.
Lime in the Coconut by Harry Nilson
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Tammi Terrell & Marvin Gaye
Knock on Wood by Amii Steward
Where Did Our Love Go? by The Supreme
Que Sera Sera by Doris Day
I Want to Be Evil by Eartha Kitt
Dream a Little Dream of Me by Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong
Don’t Go Breaking My Heart by Elton John (This is Coen and I’s song! We always sing duets.)

I’ve been on a quest of being positive. Laying off the coffee (okay, there’s still some coffee) and replacing it with fruit and vegetable juice. Attempting to stop glorifying YouTubers and instead learning about crystal healing.
It sounds totally cliche, but it’s helping me cleanse my life. It’s time to throw away the negative and live, you know? Do you have any soppy classics that always manage to make you smile?
If you’d like, you can listen to the mixtape at the top of this post by pressing play, or jumping straight to YouTube.
