“I Love Manchester” Playlist


A quick, little Friday afternoon post for you. In homage to a fantastic and uniquely creative city, I compiled a playlist of all the best music that has come out of Manchester for you. From the “Madchester” scene to 90s rave, from punk to perfect pop and yes even to Herman’s Hermits, it’s hard to argue with the fact that Manchester is one of the most culturally rich cities in Europe.

Light up your BBQs, pour some Pimms and kick back and listen to the sound of Manchester.


Don’t forget to let me know which are your favourite tracks.

    So much great tunes to come out of Manchester. I remember when I was a student in 1997 lots of nightclubs had Madchester themed nights and they were awesome. Great playlist! p.s. if you use a custom image as the playlist cover I will feature it on the Talk About Pop Music playlists page if you like?
