If you want to stay motivated during the removals process, a great playlist can help. Want to create a playlist that is thematic and in tune with the mood of your move? Then, take a look at these tips:
The idea of home is strong as you move. You may be thinking about the home you are leaving, the home you are moving to or the concept of home in general.
Mirror these thoughts with a few songs about home. John Denver's classic "Take Me Home, Country Roads", Ozzy Osbourne "Mama, I'm Coming Home, and "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynard Skynard are all about going home.
There are also many songs that reflect the idea of home, as the place where your loved ones are, despite the address on the door. If you or your family members have mixed feelings about moving, these songs are musts on your playlist: "Home" by Jack Johnson, "Home" by Phillips, Phillips and "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Although they have the same name and a similar message, these three songs are all deeply interesting in different ways.
2. Movement and Change
Meditating on the idea of home whilst moving is not the only thing you want to do with your playlist. You also need songs that will keep you moving as you pack, and if you want to be fun, you should incorporate songs with steady beats that talk about movement or change.
"Proud Mary" first written and performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival and then, artfully interpreted by Tina and Ike Turner is a perfect moving song. It talks about struggles, heartache, being welcomed into new places, and the refrain talks about big wheels moving, all great themes to keep in mind during the removals process. "Changes" by David Bowie is another song that should make your playlist.
Finally, add a few songs that help you say goodbye. Luckily, there are countless songs about saying goodbye. Everything from ballads to dance songs focus on saying goodbye. If you like pop and upbeat music, add in the Anna Kendrick's version of "Cups" which has the lyrics "you'll miss me when I'm gone."
You may also want to consider, "Leaving on a Jet Plane". Most famously performed by Peter, Paul and Mary, this folk tune is a hum or sing along for almost everyone. Finally, if you aren't sure whether you are more excited about saying goodbye to your old place or hello to your new place, add the Beatles "Goodbye, Hello".
