#Playlist: May 2015

Hola Speakerz!

It’s time for another of our monthly playlists! As usual, we’re bringing you both a YouTube and Spotify playlist of all of this month’s featured songs!

Muzik Speaks has been alive and kicking for just 3 months now and it’s still growing fast! During this month, we’ve reached 100 followers on Twitter, and nearly have 100 Facebook likes. We also did our first interview with the awesome Ali Tabatabaee from Zebrahead – he and Ben, both from the band, were so amazing to work with!

This month’s playlist also brought you some excellent tracks from the likes of; Maroon 5, Britney Spears and Nelly Furtado as well as songs from independent acts, like Andy Jordan and Jack Peñate. We also brought you music from newcomers Life Of Dillon, Prides and Ryn Weaver and finally we threw-back of your Thursdays with Wheatus, Five (5ive), Alien Ant Farm and Will Smith.

We hope you enjoy this month’s songs, all taken from our posts throughout May 2015 – Our apologies if some of the tracks are missing from the Spotify playlist – some may not have been released yet and 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.


We’d like to ask you, to go ahead and ‘like’ our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/muzikspeaks) and ‘follow’ us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/muzik_speaks). Then if you could please post a status or send a tweet to your followers and friends to ask them to check us out, we’d be really grateful! We want to grow this community and we honestly can’t do it without your support!

Lastly, please please feel free to respond to our posts on Facebook or leave comments on each of our blog posts with your own tracks for each of the daily themes – we want to hear what you’re listening to because we love music as much as you, and we really enjoy finding out about new tunes. Thanks so much.

#FeelGoodFriday: Jack Peñate – ‘So Near’

Jack Peñate Banner

Where to start with Jack Peñate – the man writes awesome crossover songs, somewhere between indie-pop, rockabilly and soul and remains an independent artist, despite his success!

His single, Pull My Heart Away, from second album (Everything Is New), was featured in the end credits of the hit film, Charlie St. Cloud. During the 2009 tour, in support of this album, the now known singer, Jessie Ware, performed backing vocals for him, and finally, the track, Every Glance, from the same album, features backing vocals, from singing sensation Adele, who was relatively unknown at that time!

I have chosen to feature this particular song, So Near, as it is just such an uplifting-sounding track – the groove of the song just takes hold of you and his chants of “I’m so near” force you to sing along! The instrumentals of the song are interesting too; it’s such a well-produced, intricately sculpted masterpiece!

Do you appreciate the beautifully happy sound of this song? Have you got your own #FeelGoodFriday track to share? Please share this link with your family, friends and anyone who’ll listen 🙂
