Project Playlist

Posted 31/8/2012
Music is an important factor in your mood, it can be relaxing, energising or inspiring. Throughout this project I have been adding songs to a playlist on YouTube that I named ‘You can do it! Do what you’ve always dreamed about!’ to help get us through the low days.
One of the tasks on my Day Zero 101 list was to get the playlist up to 101 inspirational songs , which I’ve finally done – with Ryan’s help of course. See Day Zero blog post for what the project is about and my full to-do list.
It is an eclectic mix of music for sure, from Rock, Pop, Garage, Dance, Happy Hardcore, New Age and even some Classical movie themes. I must say now though that for some reason I’ve never been a fan of the film Rocky, so there’s no Eye of the Tiger in this list I'm afraid if you were hoping for it!
See below for the list of tracks, put it on a playlist or YouTube while you work on your current project and see what happens for you – there is nearly 7 hours of inspiration in there! All of these songs have either taught us a lesson, helped us get back up and carry on when we were down, or just remind us of a happy time and deal an awesome mood so I hope they help you too. J
