    Packed full of feel-good radio-friendly tunes, Weekend Songs is the latest compilation designed to soundtrack the morning after the night before. Like similar titles Just Great Songs and Me Time, it very rarely strays from the usual Radio 2 playlist staples, but still manages to sound eclectic, taking in everything from indie pop (Razorlight) to disco (Sister Sledge) and trip-hop (Morcheeba). The usual suspects Bubl, Nutini, and Powter open the first disc, but a quick burst of girl power pop from Marina & the Diamonds and Little Boots paves the way for a more diverse track list, with the cluster of early noughties classics (All Saints, Toploader, Macy Gray) the standout tracks. The second disc ups the ante in terms of credibility, thanks to Noah and the Whale's shanty-esque "Five Years Time," Peter Bjorn and John's whistle-led "Young Folks," and the vibrant electro-pop of Kid Sister's "Daydreaming," but it's Natalie Imbruglia's colossal hit "Torn," the Fray's TV drama favorite "How to Save a Life," and Shakespear's Sister's epic "Stay" that provide the highlights. Disc three is a little more retro, featuring tracks from the '70s (Bill Withers, the Doors), '80s (Bruce Hornsby, Aztec Camera), and '90s (Faith No More, Marc Cohn), huge airplay hits from Sixpence None the Richer and Gnarls Barkley, and several less obvious inclusions from established artists (the Pretenders' "I Go to Sleep," Chris Rea's "Josephine"). With a track list covering several genres and spanning several decades, Weekend Songs proves easy listening doesn't necessarily mean MOR, and is a welcome addition to the chillout compilation market. ~ Jon O'Brien
