Friday Tunes: Xanadu and Other Stories

LBB Editorial , 2 years, 3 months ago

The LBB team share some of their favourite tracks to get your Friday started

Friday Tunes: Xanadu and Other Stories

Enter the disturbing and utterly shameless world of the Little Black Book team's musical taste with this weeks' Friday playlist. Expect guilty pleasures, weird grooves, unexpected classics, laid  back psychedelia, some guitars and a bit of ear dirt. Oh and Xanadu. (Look, I'm sorry but Matt Cooper made me do it.)

It's an eclectic mix, certainly, but then that's the LBB team for you. If you're curious about who chose what and you want to know where to send the fan mail, skip to the bottom of the page where you can see what each of our budding inhouse DJs selected (we do weddings and barmitzvahs, folks!.. as long as you like Olivia Newton John).
