Continuing our series of "Happy" playlists on Spotify, our next selection has been especially curated by the good folks at Island Records.
As far as record labels go, you’ll be hard pressed to find one with more of a legacy than Island. Founded in Jamaica in 1959, Island is responsible for launching the careers of Bob Marley and U2. The label also has produced groundbreaking acts such as Portishead, Amy Winehouse and Florence and The Machine, to name a few.
Their playlist highlights the very best of their roster, old and new, as well as a selection of happy songs chosen by the artists themselves.
As we believe happiness is contagious, we caught up with some of the acts featured to ask them this question:
If you could pick any song to share, what would it be, who would you share it with and why?
"Everything's Not Lost" by Coldplay. I'd like to share with my brother who is struggling with all his exams and working really hard to revise. You go bro, almost there.
Our song is Bombay Bicycle Club's "Luna." We'd share this song with our tour manager, so we can blast it in the minibus all day long and psych ourselves up for festival season.
Foster the People's "Coming of Age" to my brother back in Stockholm who I really miss
since I’m never home.
"My First, My Last, My Everything" by Barry White. Whenever I hear this song, it makes me feel so happy. It reminds me of when I was young and me and my Mum would do a silly dance every time we heard it, no matter where we were. So I'd share it with my Mum, dance moves and all!
We chose The Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize" and would share it with our family to let them know we love and care for them while we're on the road.
