Friday's Playlist: Fête de la Musique 2019

It's Fête de la Musique here in France. Today is the day where no matter where you walk, all around France, you are likely to hear a bunch of fourteen year-olds slaughtering Hey Joe in front of a café. But it's not just beginners and buskers: big events with major artists are being organised everywhere. I remember seeing INXS on Place de la République about 25 years ago and Joe Cocker the following year. I know James Brown played there too, although I didn't make it to that one.

So this Friday's Playlist is inspired by this event. Today's playlist is special in the sense that it doesn't have a theme. It's just a bunch of good tunes from many different styles thrown together and carefully sequenced. A lot of songs are very famous, some are a little more obscure. This is what Music Day is like. Music doesn't need to follow a pattern or adhere to any rules. It just needs to be played and to be listened to.
