My Blogging Pal, Kristian, The other Kristian, of Life Lessons Around the Dinner Table,
has posted her top songs from 2018 from Spotify. Apparently, Spotify produces a list of the songs you listened to the most in 2018.
Here is Kristian’s post:
So here are my top songs. You will find nothing new or recent here, just some great songs from yesteryear. They all seem to be quite relaxing music. A few of them already appear on previous posts that I did about music I was listening to, see here:
Some of the songs are seldomly played nowadays, whereas others are established favourites.
- Bilitis – Francis Lai.
Apparently, this was written for a rather suggestive film, but I don’t know anything about that. The theme reminds me of that kind of electronic music of the late seventies and early ’80s like Vangelis Chariots of Fire.
2. Cavatina – John Williams – This was used as the Theme for the film Deerhunter. I have linked to this before.
3. Albatross – Fleetwood Mac – This is one of my favourite go-to songs for rest and relaxation and I have linked to it before.
4. Ballade Pour Adeline – Richard Clayderman.
5. The Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals – Saint Saens.
6. Stranger on the Shore – Acker Bilk
7. Nocturne – Secret Garden
8. Liebestraum – Franz Liszt – This is pretty famous so I won’t link to it. It is a lovely piece of music and one often used in films or adverts.
9. Chi Mai – Ennio Morricone – This was used for a popular TV show in the early 80’s called the Life and Times of David Lloyd George. I recommend both the song and the programme.
10. Music Box Dancer – Richard Clayderman (performed by) Written by Frank Mills.
