Retro Playlist – COVID-19 But Make It Retro

In this difficult time that is the quarantine caused by the coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic, we must take care not only of our physical health, but our mental health as well. Music is one of my personal favourite tools of escapism. This is why I prepared another retro playlist for you, adequately named “COVID-19 but make it retro”. So, retro tunes, retro covers of songs that are kinds funny right now. You gotta keep laughing, right?

And yes, I know some songs appear more thatn once. It was hard choosing just one cover, so have all of them 🙂 That way the playlist is longer and you won’t get bored of it so quickly.

Retro Glamour – my favourite playlist on 8tracks

What is retro glamour? For me it’s the inspiration taken from the past, a bit nostalgic, very polished, idealized even. Glamorous. But always fun.

Music has always been a big, big part of my life. I went to music school, I always dreamed of performing in musicals on stage, I love jazz. So in daily life I also look for this jazzy, retro touch in, well, everything. Especially music. Hence, this playlist. I’m not much of a Top 40 person, but I gathered a collection of tunes with that retro feel that I like listening to, and decided to share it with you. Please tell me what you think and give it some love on 8tracks!
