Hiii and happy Monday guys!
How was your weekend? Ours was really fun–we hung out with friends Friday and Saturday nights, and yesterday I got a whole day to be lazy on the couch and read while Neal went to the Blackhawks game with my sister in law! (I finished All The Light We Cannot See!! It was SO GOOD. It had been on my list for awhile and my friend Rebecca finally convinced me to pull the trigger. Do you follow her blog Everyday Parisian? You will LOVE It!)
I don’t know about you, but today, I need a little pick-me-up with this grey winter weather, so I figured it was time to revisit one of my favorite Real Women Approved roundups–the best Spotify playlists! New music always brightens my day!
Below are your favorite Spotify Playlists that you love to listen to during work, on the weekends, while working out, and pretty much everything in between.
First, I’ll kick us off with two of my favorite playlists…
During the day, I’m almost always playing French Jazz! It’s my favorite to put on in the background during work–because I don’t speak French, I don’t get distracted by the lyrics. Plus, when am I not dreaming of Parisian Cafes? ❤
This is the playlist that Neal and I always put on whenever we’re hanging out together. It’s pretty much the best compilation of classic rock ever–we always listen to it while hanging out on our front porch.
Alright, now, time for YOUR favorite Spotify playlists:
“Such a good playlist of oldies to star your day! It’s on every morning while I get ready for work!”–Claire
“A soothing mix that I like to play during work, cleaning the house or cooking. It helps me discover new artists as well!” – Alex
“These have such fun, pick-me-up vibes! I like them when I’m getting ready in the morning or just when I want some music in the background. Mostly indie/alternative/electronic/pop and everything in between!” –Hannah
Julie recommended this beachy/clubby playlist! “They play it at Homeslice” she informed me, one of my favorite trendy pizza spots, so obvi it’s a winner in my book! A good playlist for a summer party or pregame.
Claire says, “I love listening to this in the car during spring and summer or at the pool! Most of the songs are beachy, kind of reggae style!” Lauren also seconds this and recommends it for when you’re “seriously struggling with the pre-Spring BS weather Mother Nature is currently sharing with us” 😂
“These three are my go-to’s for when I need to block out everything around me and get my you-know-what done!”– Hannah
“When I’m in the mood for background music without vocals! It’s simultaneously low key, modern, and classy with a little bit of hip hop. Perfect for dinner at home or getting work done when I can’t handle distracting lyrics!”–Sarah
Similarly, Anne recommends the Coffee Table Jazz playlist. She says “it’s great for relaxing after a long day at work!”
Tatum says, “It’s my go-to at work when I want something to play while focusing (that isn’t classical piano).”
“A great one for some older classics!” –Phoebe
“For all my fellow country music lovers. It’s my go-to for all the hottest and just released country songs!” –Emma
“Good for making out, obvi, but also just like, hanging out. Highly recommend.”–Kelsey. (Kelsey, you kill me with this description 😂)
“One of my faves! Very relaxing without the “classical music” vibe so it feels more modern (and you can sing along which is a nice extra, haha!)” – Clara
Reader Keely made this personal playlist full of Latin jams. “Most of my best friends are native [Spanish] speakers and that’s something we love to do together, listen to this playlist! The songs are super catchy for working out, too!”
“Self explanatory–it’s my favorite!” –Elise
YES this is real! 😂 Sarah says “It’s got a lot of throwbacks from the early 2000’s and it’s fun to put on in the car or while studying just to reminisce.”
“This is a great one for jammy songs that aren’t too intense!”–Phoebe
Meredith describes this playlist as, “basically all the songs you know but don’t really know how and somehow know all the words”
“She does great covers and has originals too! Great “Chill” playlist if you like acoustics!”
Do you followChickpea in the City?! You should! “She has a playlist for every occasion” GG reader, Dani says. Her “Songs I Wish I Heard in Soulcycle” gives me life for those 4am gym wakeup calls, and her “A Dream” playlist is perfect for those chill, night time/deep thinking vibes!”
