Well, today is the day! I picked this afternoon to start Spring Cleaning and spent the morning putting together my favourite songs for a soundtrack full of encouragement. Want to know what's in it? Just read on below!
As you'll obviously notice, I'm a rather nostalgic girl when it comes to songs that really make me happy. There's loads of my favourite nineties numbers in it, as well as some older songs that never fail to boost my mood and put a smile on my face, and general favourite bands who are never NOT in any playlist I put together. The full list on Spotify is three and a half hours long, and the original one on iTunes even doubles those hours of cleaning tunes, so I won't put the whole list on here but rather twenty favourites to give you an idea of what keeps me motivated while I sweep those floors and clean out those closets (spoiler alert: it's mostly dancing).
What d'you think? There's the obvious Queen classic, of course. Everyone should have already done their chores to that one, don't you think? ;-) There's definitely some guilty pleasures in it, as well, like Genesis' Invisible Touch and Phil Collins' Sussudio. Then there's a whole bunch of Prince songs (sucker for that), the ever-present, ever-favourite The Clash, the one-album band Larrikin Love (one of my favourite albums released after the year 2000) and - I gave you a heads up for this yesterday - some rare current hits like Perm by Bruno Mars.
Now, I'll leave it at that because it's high time I started, isn't it? Let's do this!
Q: what are some of your favourite motivational songs when cleaning your place?
