THe track List

If I was Spotify, what would I play for you first thing Monday morning to get your marketing mojo working?

You may have seen our series of backstage interviews where we ask our rockstars what tune gets their marketing mojo going on a Monday morning. Add to this that each issue is named after a classic album and it was time for us to hit the virtual decks of Spotify to share the good vibes.

SOUND CHECK got the ball rolling with some classics - Bowie and Tears for Fears from Robert Rose, some inspirational James Taylor from Ted Rubin, Ian Truscott suggested we Be Bold and of course, with a name like Rockstar CMO, it has to be N.E.R.D, from our editorial team.

PROJECT: FUNK DA WORLD gave us gems from the I’d Rather Be the Pope article, adding some Prince and Depeche Mode. Going back stage with Darren Guarnaccia we, maybe bravely, dropped some Kelly Clarkson and we can't forget the headline act for this issue, Craig Mack, who inspired us to bring a brand New Flava to Ya Ear. 

AGE OF CONSENT left us with some classic 80's Bronski Beat rattling around our heads, so the team selected Small Town Boy to represent that album.

OK COMPUTER featured an article Paranoid Android, so that track was a no brainer, and John Andrews suggested we rock out to "I just want to celebrate" by Rare Earth a great tune to kick off a marketing Monday.

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON dropped some NWA into the playlist and Tom Wentworth contributed Wu -Tang Forever by Drake. For Christine Bailey, it had to be Ain’t no Mountain High Enough.

A SEAT AT THE TABLE gave us the gift of Mad by Solange and Jenni Young dropped a few cents in the juke box for the classic Chaka Khan track, Like Sugar.

NEVERMIND featured “Come as you are” by Nivanna and Amber Osborne gave us anything by Sound Garden, so we went with Black Hole Sun and “We are the Champions” by Queen who got the vote from Wendy Bryant-Beswick

THRILLER, our Halloween edition, handed us this absolute classic by Michael Jackson and Jeanniey Mullen gave us 4 to choose from – so we picked ‘Fighter’ by Christina Aguilera. 

An eclectic set list for the party that is a Monday morning in marketing!
