Blue Monday Playlist: 9 Liverpool Bands that will set you up for a great day


Have you had an amazing weekend? Has Blue Monday kicked in? Well luckily for you we’ve got a mega Monday playlist featuring 9 Liverpool bands that will put a smile on even the most hungover of faces!

If you need a bit of a boost in the morning or maybe some new tunes for your gym session or run (well done by the way) check out these 9 Liverpool bands uplifting tracks that will have you foot-tapping in no time.

Headphones at the ready, lets go!

1 – The Coral – In the Morning

Released back in 2005, we don’t reckon there’s a more realistic account of tearing yourself out of your (or someone else’s) bed on a dark morning and The Coral even managed to write it into a phenomenal indie track.

2 – George Harrison – Here Comes The Sun

The mornings are getting lighter and who doesn’t love a bit of winter sun shining through Lime Street station on your way to work? George Harrison’s smile though?!

3 – The Lightning Seeds – Life of Riley

We absolutely adore this track, purely for the video (that dog!) if not its instantly recognisable opening bars. Get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside reminiscing about match days (maybe not last weekend though) with The Lightning Seeds.

4 – The Zutons – Valerie

We’re pretty sure the name Valerie was never popular before this absolutely classic track was released by The Zutons in 2006. The original, and best.

5 – The Wombats – Let’s Dance to Joy Division

A Liverpool band with the best opening line (I’m back in Liverpool!) to an indie track ever! The Wombats want you to dance to Joy Division and start your day with a smile….looks well fun!

6 – The La’s – There She Goes

One of the most recognisable guitar riffs ever, this track from The La’s never gets old. Neither do the Adidas trackies and hair styles. How can you not smile listening to this?

7 – The Farm – Groovy Train

Running late….or just running? Stick your Gazelle on and get a sweat on to some pure, unadulterated 90’s indie from The Farm. Solero microphones are optional, still a bit nippy out!

8 – Space – Neighbourhood

Do your best Keith Lemon (or Lloyd Grossman if you remember that far back) and ask ‘Who Lives in a House Like This?’ as Space frontman, Tommy takes you through his neighbourhood. We reckon it was somewhere on Smithdown?

9 – Echo & The Bunnymen – Lips Like Sugar

We couldn’t compile a Liverpool band playlist and not have a belter from Echo & The Bunnymen. How about a bit of brooding? Released in 1987 and still sounds fresh to death!
