Jessie Ware's playlist of excellence

You were probably in bed at the time, but Jessie Ware was left in charge of Radio 1 for two hours on Sunday night. Now if it was me, I'd have changed all the locks, put Annie Mac in charge of the playlist, moved Scott Mills back to drivetime and sent garrulous weekend idiots "Dan and Phil" in a metaphorical and literal elevator to hell.

But Jessie was content to spin a few tunes and talk utter nonsense until her allotted time was up. As you might expect, the music was sublime: A perfect late-night dose of chilled soul. She was a natural behind the mic, too. Talking about her upcoming gigs at Shepherd's Bush Empire, Jessie noted: "I’ve been to see Another Level there... and now there’s me".

You can hear the whole programme on the Radio 1 website or the BBC Radio Player app until Sunday. But if you are accessing this page FROM THE FUTURE (hello, Busted!) here's a Soundcloud playlist with all but three of the songs she played...
