CHILL OUT IN FRONT OF THE FIRE.
It’s what everyone wants to do on the cold afternoon of a winter weekend, and what better background music for such lazy days as some mellow, warming soul? This playlist fuses soulful sounds old and new to create a tranquil, cosy feeling you just can’t get with any other genre.
If you enjoy this playlist, you may well also like the Sweet Soul Sunday playlist curated by Spotify, which features a few of these songs and many more besides – I’d never listened to soul before it came up on my recommendations page, but was more than pleasantly surprised when I decided to give it a try. From absolute classic soul artists like Aretha Franklin and Bill Withers, to more modern songs such as Silhouette and Me and Mr Jones, to the original version of Killing me Softly with his Song, not by the Fugees but by the incredible Roberta Flack, this playlist covers a huge range of soul in a short space of time.
I wish you all a relaxed, mellow, and soulful week – stay warm both physically and mentally, and if it’s snowing where you are, stay safe too! Until next week, may you have love and light as always.
