I need to create a playlist that will be in the background while some people do some gentle exercises and other activities.

These will be people from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities and ages - but probably more 50+

So, any suggestions for tunes? I'm not good at appealing to the masses!

Sorry for bumping this, I need it this morning!

Abba, Beatles, Elvis are all pretty universal!

Or look for a party compilation album!
Or relaxation music if it is less upbeat!

Thanks guys! I just thought, I guess it's a Radio 2 vibe that would work.

What do Radio 2 play?!

I have no idea! I don't listen to radio two but looking at the artists I'd guess Adele, Coldplay, Lissie, Lukas Graham, Travis (think its a new album), Ashley Monroe, Jess Glynn, Justin Bieber (although it pains me to say it), little mix, Mumford & Sons.

HTH smile

Although looking at your demographic perhaps Elton, Enya and Rod Stewart would go down well also?

I'd go with classical music rather than any of the above if you just want a bit of background. Or no music at all, I'd rather have silence than Radio 2 (and I'm heading for 50).
