From the Playlist

Never underestimate the strength of great sad songs. Melancholy Mood is a rock and pop mix of slow, emotional, and nostalgic songs with powerful vocals for all the “feels”.

In this list you’ll find a mix of influential, alternative and mainstream artists from down under. This is purely a starter of what you may find on your Oz music adventure.

Be the hottest most confident Bad B version of yourself. 90% of life is confidence, the thing about confidence is no one knows if it’s real or not so you just got to do what feels good to you and leave that ex out of sight, out of mind.
