Back to the Mountains Playlist

The mountains offer escapism and rejuvenation from daily life. Ideally everyone could have the best of both worlds – the beauty of the countryside but the convenience of a town. When you’ve had a busy day and want nothing more than to climb a big hill, music can be the next best thing to turn to.  Here’s my top 50 favourite songs to listen to when I’m in need of a bit of TLC, which of course includes at least one song with the word ‘Mountain in the title’:
