This week: When We Were Young
Remember You’re a Womble
If you’re in need of a laugh, there’s a genre of music that will never win awards or get praise from critics but has the power to transport us back to childhood within seconds of hearing their ridiculous noises.
Novelty records used to top the charts with alarming regularity. Who on earth bought them? You’d probably not admit it but, depending on your age, we’re pretty sure you spent your hard-earned pocket money on Remember You’re A Womble, Swing The Mood by Jive Bunny or Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble by PJ & Duncan (whatever happened to those guys?) And be honest: secretly we still love them.
Head to Top Playlists / Moods / Party for singing soap stars, disco ducks, and whatever Flat Eric was, along with some “classic” nostalgic TV theme tunes – we break them down by decade in our 70s, 80s and 90s Novelty Hits playlists. Play these to the kids and you’ll never be able to convince them that music was better in your day.
Serene Sound Machine
Somehow this peculiar year has flown by and we’re hoping everyone gets into the spirit of the season to bring as much normalcy as possible to the end of this 2020 whirlwind.
And ROXi is here to help. Before all the online shopping starts and worrying if you’ll get the Christmas cards in the post on time, take a break for yourself to relax and focus on you. With ROXi’s Sound Machine feature, you can make your home a serene, peaceful place to collect your thoughts before the hectic holidays are upon us.
With three comforting categories to choose from, centre your mind with some yoga under the Meditate section, or get back to nature with the tranquil sounds of Wildlife found under the Relax section. Or grab a rejuvenating kip on the couch with the help of the soft White Noise under the Sleep section.
