Hustle, Pause, Play: The Ultimate Back to Work Playlist

Another Day of Sun - La La Land Soundtrack

La La Land didn’t win seven Golden Globes for nothing! The movie/musical is about how an aspiring actress and jazz player met and helped each other find the path towards their dreams. The movie shows that it can be incredibly difficult to hold on to something you’re passionate about, and what it takes to get there. If you haven’t seen La La Land, Another Day of Sun is the opening sequence.


Work On It - Alicia Keys

Fresh off her latest album, HERE, Alicia Keys is back with her brilliant composing and songwriting skills, and that signature piano and RnB sound we all love. Work On It rings true to to our Back To Work/Get It Done theme this year. What’s the top thing on your list that you need to get done in 2017?

Paris - The Chainsmokers

This song is more about romance and getting away rather than literally getting back work, but we can’t help but dream sometimes. If you loved Closer, you’d probably reel over this track. Where do you wish you could get away? On a workcation, probably?


All Night - The Vamps

For freelancers obsessed with work (nothing new here) and who think sleep is for the weak -- cheers! The track title says it all.

I been up all night, no sleep

Cause I feel like I'm always dreaming

Love on the Weekend - John Mayer

Looking forward to the weekend? Gotta love the days when you’re enjoying a well-deserved break. The song starts with “It's a Friday, we finally made it”. Sounds like you? Breaks are equally important as your work, and John Mayer will make you love every minute of this song.

Unstoppable - Sia

What would you do if you have no fear, or if you wouldn’t fail? Sia’s song Unstoppable is about empowerment, and that’s exactly how you should feel -- not just at the start of the year but about your career. Freelancing lets you live your life to its absolute best and opens it to loads of possibilities. Even startup entrepreneurs have the great opportunity to change lives with their innovative ideas. Are you making the most of your life?

Waking up Again - Emily Hearn

Emily Hearn’s soft, sweet, and endearing vocals will make you want to wake up bright and early every morning. This song makes you feel passionate about life and appreciate the little things that make it wonderful.

Keep Your Head Up - Andy Grammer

If you’re a bit of a worrier, this song will help you turn a bad day around. When life gets a bit challenging, keep your head up and move on. Cheer up! You only lose if you don’t learn.

Unwritten - Natasha Bedingfield

Probably the ultimate feel good song -- and if this won’t make you feel good, we’re not sure what will. It’s all about releasing your inhibitions and believing in yourself. The song goes: “Live your life with arms wide open / Today is where your book begins / The rest is still unwritten”.

U2 - Beautiful Day

Rock band U2 definitely knows how to set the mood. There’s something good in every day, and this song claims it. If you learn to see what’s beautiful and focus on the positive things in life, you’re bound to have a beautiful day.
