Holiday Playlist

This post is about a day or two late but it's one I've been looking forward to writing. I used to write a weekly post about the music I'd been listening to but it dropped off when I started a different series. 

One thing I love about being on holiday is just the general carefree atmosphere, no work or hassle and a mix of songs that really help me relax. Before I go on holiday I always put together a playlist to listen to on the plane and whilst I'm chilling by the pool so I figured I could share with you my most recent playlist.

At home I tend to go for songs more in the rock/alternative/punk direction but something about going on holiday just pushes me towards the upbeat pop genre. The songs I'm about to mention were picked up by listening to the radio and curiosity, I didn't actively seek out and search for songs before my holiday. 

  • I Really Really Like You - Carly Rae Jepsen
  • Black Magic - Little Mix
  • Lovers On The Sun - David Guetta ft. Sam Martin
  • She's Kinda Hot - 5 Seconds Of Summer
  • Shine - Years And Years
  • Drag Me Down - One Direction
  • Cheerleader - OMI
  • Trap Queen - Fetty Wap
  • Poison - Rita Ora
  • Hey Mama - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj and Afro Jack
So, those were the ten songs I added to my holiday playlist this year. Of course I listened to others but they were more dated and I figured these newer releases would make a more interesting post. I am interested in what you lovely people are listening to over the summer so please, by all means leave a comment. :)


  1. Oh man, I haven't done a playlist in forever since I discovered Pandora (unless that counts). Or most of the time I'll search for playlist on youtube and that takes care of that. Of course it's not as customized but the task seems tedious to me :P

    1. To be honest, I enjoy it. It may sound tedious but it's something I enjy piecing together, my phone is full of them Haha! :D

  2. Yep there is nothing quite like being on hols and listening to pop music. :)

    1. It makes me feel all bubbly and it gets me in the holiday spirit... That and some sangria.
