The Diamond Jubilee Mixtape

Hey there. This is my first post in over two months. I've moved back to North Wales and am looking for a job. Still no luck. Fun times. But I'm going to try and get back into writing again, I have the time at the moment but in honesty I've had a lot of writers block. I'm not in my own comfort and environment at present and I'm just struggling to think properly. I hope you like the new website design. I'm going try to start posting again; it might not be all the time but I'll give it a go when it feels right. This Mixtape was definitely a nice distraction so I hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to a Jubilee special. Happy Diamond Jubilee and all that jazz. I'm really not that big on royalty so I'm not really celebrating it, but if you are, then enjoy yourself. This Mixtape came from an idea I had whilst working with the British Heart Foundation (I'm currently volunteering there). There's a sweepstake in celebration of the Diamond Jubilee that had a load of songs you can put £1 on to donate to charity. All the songs were referencing royalty in some way or another, either in their song titles or the band or singer's name. I thought it made a brilliant idea for a Mixtape, obviously mine would have some obscure songs that would not feature on that list, but it's still a lot of fun and you know what? It's a damn good list of songs below if I should say so myself.

Not familiar with my Mixtapes? Here are the rules.

A Mixtape is a playlist of a certain genre, band or era. The list is generally 80 minutes long, the same length of a blank CD, with further recommendations if some of the songs aren't to your taste. Remember kids, downloading is wrong! 

So the songs below are my way of celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. I hope you celebrate it in a way you see fit. Enjoy your day off! Also, this Mixtape is now available to listen to fully on YouTube so subscribe to me if you want to listen to it properly.
