NOT A Christmas Playlist

Do you get fed up of playing 'Whamageddon'? You know the game where you have to go as long as possible without hearing WHAM's Christmas classic; "Last Christmas". Does Mariah have you throwing objects at the off button or screaming at Alexa! Well, we might just have a solution.

Studio 2 at West Studios is where you'll find S40 Local, S41 Local, Defeye Creative, Unhampered and Tilly Fudge Design. One thing we have in common is our love of music, and I'm pleased to say we have a mixed taste. So, I asked everyone to send me a few tracks that might make it to their playlist over Christmas but are absolutely not Christmas tunes.

The resulting list is opposite plus we've popped them all on a spotify playlist, get to it direct from Spotify above, from the QR code or link on the opposite page, you'll need a Spotify account to listen, but we reckon most people have someone in the house with an account.

Take a listen, pop a comment on and enjoy a Mariah, Bublé and Wham free couple of hours, the order is curated but feel free to shuffle!

What's that? You're welcome, yes, I know, we are great.

Happy NOT Christmas.
