Selfie Playlist 5

Batten down the hatches! In December, the German government enforced another lockdown. That was fine by me, we’ve got a baby coming and it was a good opportunity to prepare ourselves for her arrival. When we weren’t listening to Christmas music, the soundtrack was 60s soul from New Orleans, inspired by Irma Thomas’ classic ’It’s Raining’. That song led to many other gems including Diamond Joe’s ‘Gossip Gossip’ , Betty Harris’ ‘Trouble with My Lover’ and Jesse Hill’s ‘Ooh Poo Pah Doo (Part 1)’ which my son and I now sing on a daily basis. I hope 2021 is full of more joyful discoveries and tender moments like these. Listen to the playlist here
