My 'Old School' Playlist

I love the fact that there are so many old songs to listen to. Songs that are from a good few years ago always put me in such a good mood. Whilst I love songs that are released now, old school songs are fab – the melodies are always fun to sing along to and I love that you can always really hear the instruments in the song. Recently I created an ‘Old School’ playlist, and I listen to it all the time (especially on my drives to uni) because they are great to sing along to. I thought I would share some of my ‘Old School’ playlist in a blog post, because it is one of my faves to listen to!
