I put this playlist together for a newsletter called Love Will Save The Day, which is a lovely little music and culture list compiled by Jed Hallam.It showcases tunes that I love, new and old, going from the super-mellow to the dancefloor. It’s a nice long list which will keep you stimulated and hopeful until this dreadful situation eases. I present it to you with love.
