This week: Old School Disco, Best of 60’s Soul, and new Killers, only on ROXi
Back to (old) School
Surprise! It’s September. (Yes, already.) The kids have gone back to school, which for a lot of you means (finally) some time to yourself and some time to reminisce about your own school years past.
And I’m not talking about the recurring nightmare one has well into middle age, that they’ve shown up to class and forgotten to study for the huge test (what, just us?) – I’m talking about those bittersweet lasting memories from your school disco.
Girls on one side, boys on the other. The clumsiness of your first slow sway with someone you fancy, jumping about like loons to a ridiculous novelty hit, then vomiting orange squash. Ah, the best days of our lives (or so we were told).
We’ve focused on the classic decades of snogging under strobe lights with the best (and enjoyably worst) assembly hall floor-fillers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. Let ROX whisk you right back to your childhood by heading to Top Playlists where you’ll find our School Disco selection under Genres/Pop. Make sure to tell your dad not to pick you up right outside the gates (so embarrassing).
Happy Birthday Beyoncé!
Another important milestone that should be celebrated far and wide this week: Beyoncé’s birthday. Honestly, we’re kind of surprised Mrs. Knowles-Carter’s hallowed birthdate of 4 September isn’t an international holiday, but you can make it a household one with ROXi’s Best of Destiny’s Child and Beyoncé playlist. Get bootylicious in Top Playlists/Genres/Urban.
