Emotional Rollercoaster

In Tune's specially curated play list, a half-hour journey through a kaleidoscope of feelings and moods as portrayed in music, including some favourites and some unknown gems.

In Tune's specially curated playlist embarks on a half-hour journey through a kaleidoscope of moods as portrayed in music, reflecting the theme of "Emotion" in this year's Free Thinking Festival at Sage, Gateshead. Starting with Mozart's furious Queen of the Night, enjoy a musical roller-coaster of feelings including jealousy, grief, contentment with Nina Simone, tears, fear, pride and prejudice, passion and comedic hilarity from a vintage policeman.
