Feel Good Contact Lenses summer playlist

Check out our Feel Good Contact Lenses summer playlist! We’ve polled our headquarters to find out which eye-related songs should make our top ten.

there are some questionable choices in there perhaps but we proudly stick by our decision! The playlist can be found here on Spotify, or listen to them individually by clicking on the song titles. 

This classic rock song found fame on the Rocky III soundtrack, became a certified smash hit and even won an Oscar. With lyrical gems like: Face to face, out in the heat/Hanging tough, staying hungry, we think that Eye of the Tiger is good enough to start most, if not all playlists.

Although originally recorded by Johnny Nash in 1972, we’ve included the 1993 Jimmy Cliff version for its associations with one of Feel Good’s favourite films…Cool Runnings, about the Jamaican bobsled team. Altogether now: “How about I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt!” 

This version of the painfully romantic song was recorded by Chicago doo wop group, The Flamingos, 25 years after the original. However, this silky-smooth version is the one that comes to mind whenever we want to get into the mood. LOVE this. 

If you can honestly say that whenever this song comes on the radio, that it doesn’t make you want to bawl your eyes out, then you are a better and stronger person than anyone here at Feel Good Contact Lenses. 

Let’s take it back to that summer of 1987 in the Catskills, when Patrick Swayze was our dance instructor and NOBODY put Baby in the corner… Carmen also wrote ‘All By Myself’ which was later covered by Celine Dion.

Rednex have attempted to revive the heady successes of ’95 but it seems, to no avail. Who’d have thought? Perhaps best saved for the school disco or cheesy wedding dance floor, we’ve only put it in for some passing nostalgia…

Summer playlist

This Patti Smith-inspired smash hit, from 2004 featured on KT Tunstall’s debut and was included on the soundtrack of The Devil Wears Prada. The song won her a prestigious Ivor Novello Award in 2006.

Snow Patrol began their journey way, way back in 1993. After 23 years, 6 albums, 28 singles and numerous awards, don’t think they’re ready to hang up their guitar strings just yet. We can expect new material in 2016.

Apple of my Eye came out on Ed Harcourt’s 2001 debut, Here Be Monsters. Have a listen to the London-born soulful crooner who’s first album was nominated for the much-coveted Mercury Prize.

The final song on our playlist is a gentle, romantic number that everyone knows. It’s a staple of many karaoke repertoires and has been covered by everybody from Eartha Kitt to Barbara Streisand, Nat King Cole to Jason Donavan. We’ve selected The Platters’ version as we think it’s the most well-recognised.
