Music: Villiers’ Vague Utopia – Music for Muscles


By Issy Villiers

Having been away for a month or so, celebrating the festive season, indulging ourselves in the hustle and bustle of the joyous holiday, having a marvellous time, and possibly eating a little bit too much christmas pudding, the New Year is finally upon us. However, now it’s back to the grindstone as reality calls. One major aspect of the January Blues is a motivation to exercise! This is what has inspired this week’s list of chanty, chirpy, cheeping, and chirruping tunes. 

Rejoice in the gymnasium, gentlewomen!
