i actually had august’s music mix sorted ages ago, but then my ipod crashed and i lost loads of meticulously crafted playlists (sad day). luckily i had about 80% of the tunes backed up on my laptop, which lead me to rediscovering music that had been sitting in the recesses of my collection for eons – you know, the ones that your ipod never seem to include in a shuffled playlist.
so instead of trying to rehash my original august playlist, i did a mini poll on twitter and it turns out people wanted something upbeat & summery for this month’s music mix. yesssssss (i secretly air punched) – i’m partial to happy tunes myself so this is going to be a breeze. the mix is made up of new & old tunes, quite a few electro-pop songs and even an elton john remix. yes, i love elton john. if someone had to do a billion abba remixes i’d probably include those too (!)
