Welcome to Bevan Beats! This is a fortnightly article and accompanying playlist from us at the Explosion Network. It aims to enable us the ability to share the music we love, discuss a certain theme, or share what we are simply listening to in our everyday lives. You'll be able to find the playlist on Youtube and on Spotify.

As the host of the Explosion Network’s Premier Media Podcast, What Do You Wanna Watch?, it seems right that I compile a playlist of some songs from Film and TV with a few from musicals that will inevitably end up being made for the silver screen. Honestly, I just wanted to do this before somebody else thought of it. (There a bunch of other songs I wanted to include but they are not on Spotify)Read More
