So sorry it’s late but after a short break, here’s August’s monthly YouTube and Spotify playlist!
August brought you some great throwbacks by HelloGoodbye, Jaimeson and Shanice; mellowed some Mondays with Etta James, Lost Frequencies and Hayley Kiyoko and brought you a whole range of new music from Digital Farm Animals, Sigala, Prince Royce and Pia Mia.
More than anything, we hope that you enjoyed the songs we brought you throughout August 2015’s posts and we thank you for your continued views and support! – Our apologies if any of the tracks are missing from the Spotify playlist – some of them may not have been released yet or some may have been removed from Spotify by the artist/band.
Note: You can view the whole YouTube playlist by using the dropdown menu at the top corner of the video, or skip a song using the ‘next’ button.
Next month, we’ve definitely got another Skype interview and of course we’ll be bringing you many more epic tunes!

‘At Last’ was written back in 1941 but it wasn’t until 1960, when Etta James released her version, on her album (of the same name). She later went on to release it as a single in 1961.
Etta James was notable for her crossover of rhythm and blues (R&B) music with rock and roll but her vocals and the use of strings in this song, are much more indicative of soulful blues.
Sure, this song may be in excess of 50 years old, but it’s a classic and an epic way to start the week!
Do you have a different, favourite track by Etta James? Have you got another song which is mellowing your Monday? Please leave it in a comment below.
