#TBT songs we still play 24/7

Celebratin’ #ThrowbackThursday today with old jams we still pump in the office…..even if they make us feel old AF.

Beyonce – Work It Out (2003)

Hardly surprising we included a Bey song (pretty hard to narrow down to just one tbh), but this one is great to start the day off with!

 Lumidee – Never Leave You (2003)

The styling in the video for this absolute banger defo kicked off our hoop earring obsession.

Avril Lavigne – SK8er Boi (2002)

It’s not a phase.

N.E.R.D – She Wants To Move (2004)

One of our faithful getting ready to go out out tunes, never disappoints!

 Kelly Clarkson – Since U Been Gone (2004)

The ULTIMATE break-up anthem.

Justin Timberlake – Rock Your Body (2002)

Just try not to dance to this song, we think it may be impossible.

The Killers – Mr. Brightside (2004)

Shall forever been known as the end of night song in every club that you scream along to while probably barefoot.

 M.I.A – Paper Planes (2007)

M.I.A is fashion and all-round badass gal goals.

If we’ve learnt anything from this playlist it’s that early 2000s music was the BOMB! Oh and also…. that we’re still old af. Enjoy!
