Barrie Blogs – My Ultimate Playlist

Leave a Comment

There are rarely times when I’m not listening to something; whether I’m travelling around in the car visiting the salons, chilling out at home or getting ready for a big night out, there is always music in the background! Because music is such a big part of my life, I thought I’d share some my absolute favourites with you – the soundtrack to my life.

On a Night Out

I know you will find it hard to believe, but on a night out I love a bit of camp music.

My favourite album at the moment when I’m getting ready with friends is Chicago soundtrack, after watching it recently (three times!) at Curve Theatre I just can’t get enough of it. We listen to it so much that my friend Jonathan has his own routine and we call him Mama!


In the Salon

I love uplifting music in the salon, I love cafe del mar, acoustic covers albums such as live lounge, Katy B is a current favourite as something for the clients to chill out to with a bit of foot tapping thrown in whilst they enjoy the Barrie Stephen experience. Certain times of day and days of the week we crank it up a bit, chart toppers, Motown, anything to give our clients and team that weekend feeling!

In the Car

Shall I tell you a secret? Right now I’m listening to Pricilla Queen of the Dessert musical after I bought the CD when I went along to De Montfort Hall this week to watch the show. In case you hadn’t noticed I love musicals! Who’d have thought it?


When I’m at Home

You can’t beat opening a bottle of wine and cranking a power ballad. Give me Whitney, give me Celine, give me Aretha and give me some Pink. I can’t wait for Sam Bailey’s album to come out, that will definitely be on my play list.

They say if music be the food of love play on. I say let the music play and party on!
