Recently it’s been pretty overcast and cloudy here in London. As I spend a lot of my time indoors writing and creating things, I thought it seemed like the perfect day for a playlist. So here’s my list for a cloudy day, I split it up into categories!
The Sunny Ones
If you’re attempting denial about the cloud cover, then these songs are bound to put you in a sunny spirit.
Mr. Blue Sky – Electric Light Orchestra
Here Comes The Sun – The Beatles
Walking on Sunshine – Katrina and the Waves
Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
The Melancholy Ones
Looking out of the window as if you’re in a music video is pretty much the epitome of rainy and cloudy days. Now you have the perfect songs to do that too! They’re not too sad, just the perfect amount of melancholy.
Don’t Touch My Hair – Solange
Breezeblocks – alt-J
Trouble – Cage the Elephant
Shiver – Lucy Rose
The Calm Ones
Think low-fi and herbal tea, these are songs I play as background music mainly just for chilling.
F*ck Me & Feed Me – Rendezvous for Two
Corduroy Dreams – Rex Orange Country
Dreams – Fleetwood Mac
Easy – Mac Ayers
