My Lockdown Playlist: Manila Sounds of the 70s & 80s

This has been getting some serious air time in this sunny weather...

In between the endless Netflix binges and cans of Strongbow, this lockdown experience has seen me smash through a long list of Spotify playlists.

It has resulted in me listening to some seriously obscure stuff, including a day of Chief Ebeneezer Obey and a particularly dark evening listening to Cheryl Tweedy/Cole, which ended up mostly being (the brilliant) ‘Let You’ on repeat.

This last week though I’ve been solely concentrating on this: Manila Sounds of the 70s and 80s – a collection of random tunes from the Philippine capital that will have you toe-tapping and dancing in no time.

It includes such classics as Awitin Mo, Isasayaw Ko and Pinoy Ako, both of which are set to be your brand-new favourite songs of the summer.

Sat in your back yard (or your balcony), in the sun with a cider – this playlist is perfect and I guarantee you’ll be listening to it for the rest of lockdown.
