Meg Donaldson’s favourite ooky-spooky scores
If we’re talking delicious movie music, it’s pretty hard to walk past horror scores… The music in this playlist is a collection of pieces that are dark, romantic, and playful: the holy trinity of a good Halloween atmosphere.
Tiffany Cheng’s tunes for housework
“I tend to leave things until the last second, especially chores around the house! When the motivation comes in an almost divine moment, I will either turn to podcasts or a few albums to keep the industrious mood going.”
James Foster’s musical trip down memory lane
“With Melbourne’s extend lockdown I’ve come to realise that the one thing I miss the most is probably live music. So, this playlist is a mix of my favourite songs I like to relax to, as well ones inspired by my favourite concert experiences.”
Abbey Edlin's soundtrack to family life
“Consider this playlist the greatest hits to our daily lives. When life gets a little crazy (like right now), music is the perfect way to keep you sane!”
Michelle Wood's Music for a Rainy Day
“This list, for me, is proof that sometimes music doesn’t need to move us in a particular direction, or necessarily ‘do’ anything. It can just let us be exactly where we are.”
