To celebrate my seventh week of learning to play the drums, I wanted to share the songs I’m currently learning and the songs that inspired me to start in the first place.

The playlist below (Bring the Beat in) is sure to get your feet tapping and your hands air drumming. There’s an outrageous selection of songs on it, so take a look and turn the volume up.

It just so happens to be the same length of my commute. If you need me, i’ll be drumming on my steering wheel down the M62.

The tracks

Love will tear us apart – Joy Division
Superstition – Steve Wonder
