Brighton Pride is fast approaching and to celebrate, we have created our first ever, Brighton Pride Weekender playlist dedicated to one of the city’s biggest annual events to promote equality and diversity with the aim to eliminate discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

This playlist has been lovingly crafted to include a variety of tracks, by the artists performing at Brighton Pride 2018, as well as some other great anthems!

#MellowMonday: You+Me – ‘Unbeliever’

You+Me Banner

This song is beautiful; in fact this duo sound beautiful! Their album is stunning too!

In case you haven’t heard of them, You+Me are comprised of two sensational singers; P!nk (Alecia Moore) and Dallas Green (AKA ‘City & Colour’ and singer of post-hardcore band ‘Alexisonfire’). The project came about when the two met through mutual friends. They sang together on various tours, just as friends, until one day their schedules opened up and they got together to compose some original songs.

This song hasn’t actually been released from the album, however it’s such a beautiful song, it needs to be shared. The video below is a live performance of the song, but it sounds pretty true to the album track. I also love the way Pink messes up – it’s endearing.

Please share the link to this song as it deserves to be heard by many! What #MellowMonday track are you listening to today? Leave a comment below.

#WildCardWednesday: Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox – ‘Fancy’

Scott Bradlee - Banner

Well, where to start with this song; Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox are well-known YouTube stars. They take modern pop songs and put a vintage spin on them. This particular track (originally by Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX) is done in a vintage 1920s flapper style; it truly has made the track more interesting and given it very unique twist. I really hope you enjoy this.

This week’s Wild-Card has been a cover, with a twist. Are you listening to something similar? Please reply with your Wild-Card.

#FeelGoodFriday: Jess Glynne – ‘Hold My Hand’

Jess Glynne Banner

So, this was a proper last minute thing! I had my ‘Feel-Good Friday’ song all sorted and ready to post…that’s when this song came into my life; I just had to share it!

This song is without a doubt, ‘Feel-Good’! Jess Glynne’s voice dances brilliantly across a wide range of notes and elevates throughout the song, perfectly! The prominent use of piano is a welcome change to all of the synth in the charts right now (not that I don’t love synths…I do!) and makes me reminisce of 90s/early 00s pop. The chorus is just brilliant too – what a fantastic song! As if Jess Glynne wasn’t going from strength to strength already; this song will surely see her rocket to even bigger things! ‘Hold My Hand’ is released 22nd March.

Turn the volume up and get your singing on! Please share this 🙂

Have you got that Friday feeling yet? What’s making you ‘Feel-Good’ today? Share your song to help brighten our day!

#MellowMonday: Chris Malinchak – ‘So Good To Me’


Although it was released back in 2013, it was only recently that I discovered this song and it has everything I want in a mellow track right now – echoing synths, gentle vocals, simplicity and an evocative atmosphere. To bring it to life, the song features samples from ‘If This World Were Mine’ by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Not only is the song itself fantastic, but the video is pretty great too!

I can’t get enough of this song right now! I hope you enjoy it too!

How’s everyone else’s Mellow Monday? What are you listening to, to ease you into the week?

Welcome to Muzik Speaks!

‘Muzik Speaks’ is a music community based on sharing!

We truly believe that music can ‘speak louder than words’ – when you can’t find any words to say what you think or feel, often, music can! Not only can music fit a given situation or emotion perfectly, but it is also the topic of many a conversation.

Discussions about music can bring people closer together or lead passionate people into many musical debates – the credibility of a band or artist; the quality of a song’s production; what well-crafted songwriting is, etc.

Whatever your musical passion or you’re listening to presently, this blog is aimed at bringing people together to share what they’re listening to, in the hope of forming a music-based community. Whether you reply to posts with a simple link to a music video or song, or wish to share the reasons and personal experiences for your love of that song, we want to hear all about how ‘Muzik Speaks’ to you!

The style of ‘Muzik Speaks’

‘Muzik Speaks’ will consist mainly of a daily theme for 5 days of the week. We will be posting songs/music videos at 8am every day, every week, related to each day’s theme. The hope is to bring new or popular music to you, for your enjoyment, but what we really want to hear from you, are your replies to each post with songs/videos based on the same theme for that day!

Why? Because we’re music lovers too, and we want to hear what popular, new or exciting music you’re listening to, and are sure other people will too!

Sharing is Caring!

This community is all about sharing, posting and talking – all about music!

The Daily Themes:

  • Mellow Monday – easy-listening songs to relax into the week ahead.
  • Two4Tunesday – two songs you can’t get enough of right now – these could be from popular or unsigned artists; it doesn’t matter what genre, it’s all about what you’re loving right now!
  • Wild-Card Wednesday – guilty pleasures, quirky songs, unreleased rarities, album tracks, etc. Something unusual which grabs you!
  • Throwback Thursday – popular on social media everywhere; it does what it says – songs which blast at you from your past.
  • Feel-Good Friday – something fun, happy and uplifting which give you that Friday feeling!

All that’s left to say, is welcome to the community…and now let the Muzik Speak!
