Spotify Playlists for Every Mood

Spotify is probably my most used app.  I first started my subscription for it about two years ago and I couldn’t believe that I was living life without this wonderful invention.  And at only £4.99 a month (with student discount), I’ve never looked back.

Here are my TOP 5 Spotify playlists!!

Happy Pop Hits

Mood: Feeling lethargic


For when you really can’t be bothered getting ready and starting your day.  Or when you need something completely inoffensive to accompany you on the journey to work and help you cope with the fact that, you know, work.

The upbeat, easy-listening, pop hits such as Millionaire, Fresh Eyes, Kiss the Sky and Shout out to my Ex can really put a skip into your step when you’re feeling not-so-excited about life.  Like all the playlists, it’s updated all the time, so always has the happiest selection of what’s popular right now.

Power Workout

Mood: Early morning run/HIIT sesh


Sometimes you need to hear the crackly piano intro of Eminem’s Lose Yourself to get yourself through that last mile.  If that doesn’t do it for you, I’m sure X Gon’ Give It To Ya, Fight Night, I Don’t F*** With You or, of course POWER will get you past those feelings of complete rage that come mid-cardio (just me?).

Top Tip:  This is also a great one to bust a few moves to when waiting for your dinner to cook/fake tan to dry/kettle to boil.

Indie Roadtrip

Mood: Sunny day/feeling nostalgic


This one will relate to the angsty teenager in all of us.  Think Last Nite, Take Me Out, Not Nineteen Forever, She’s So Lovely and the absolute champion of classics Mr. Brightside (need I go on???).  And then there are the more current champions of Indie like Catfish and the Bottlemen’s Kathleen and an ample selection of The 1975.

Put this playlist on in the car or while out and about on a nice day and I dare you not to sing along.

Dance Workout

Mood: Taking the gym lightly/morning motivation


It’s Monday morning and your 7am alarm has went off.  You need to go right now if you want to get your workout in before work/uni but it’s still basically the weekend and your head isn’t in it.  Here are your jams.

Sometimes the Power Workout is a bit too much for when you’re more focused on just getting through the workout than absolutely smashing it.  So this selection of mainly throwback pop is familiar enough to make you smile, upbeat enough to be enjoyable and fast enough to motivate you to keep up some sort of decent pace while working out.

This playlist has not one, but four Beyonce tracks as well as the absolute TUNES that are Toxic, Lady Marmalade, Hollaback Girl and Buttons.  You’ll definitely be tempted to break into your sassiest strut for the rest of the day: it’s not called DANCE workout for nothing!

Independent Ladies

Mood: Getting ready/feeling empowered


Who run the world?  GIRLS.  The playlist – that I can only assume was created by an absolute GENIUS – features all of the best female R’n’B from the 90s-now.

Beyonce, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, J-Lo, Mariah Carey, Rihanna; the gang’s all here!  And with plenty more independent ladies that will have you making the flick of your eyeliner cover your whole eyelid (because NO man can tell you it’s wrong *sassy finger wave*).

Favourite include Work It, Dirrty, Diva, No Scrubs and of course Independent Women, Pt. 1.

So not matter what your mood is, there is a playlist for you!!! Spotify’s ‘browse’ function will also help you choose the perfect playlist from a list of genres and moods.
