Some songs to get you through lockdown and beyond.
When we first went into lockdown this playlist started as a bit of a laugh as something that everyone was doing but then it developed into a feelgood playlist, now a playlist manly containing my all-time favourite songs and something I listen to daily and love listening to. It has now developed into a playlist to remind me what I was listening to when I look back on this time, but also for some good tunes to get me through the semi loneliness of lockdown.
I am lucky to be in lockdown with my family and to still be going to work but not being able to see my best friends or family puts a downer on it all. So to make sure I have something to make me happy on the commute to work I put on this playlist to put a smile on my face and make me sing at the top of my voice in the car (I'm sure people think I'm mad when they see me).

Music is defiantly a way for me to express myself, you can tell a lot from what I have been listening to, I can also change my mood by listening to music. Stressed I have a song for that! Sad I have a song for that! Unmotivated I have a song for that! For any situation, I can find a song to either match my mood or get me into a better one and give me a better look on the situation.
Indie/modern rock is my personal genre of choice so that is what is the main feel of this playlist, with some of my favourite artists from this genre being: Eliza and the bear, Cassia, Only Sun, Tom Grennan, Vistas and many more.
