1) One Direction – Fireproof
There’s been a bit of a mixed reaction to this track which was made available for free for 24 hours this week. It’s a lot more mature with a soft beat and gorgeous harmonies and I absolutely love it. Such a great song.
2) Favela – Easy Yoke
Found this on a Spotify placement I was listening to yesterday and have listened to it over and over since. Such a beautiful song. Very spaced out and the strings are just stunning.
3) The 1975 – Heart Out
I’ve loved this since I purchased The 1975’s début album almost a year ago but the release of the video last week has given the song a new lease of life for me. So catchy it’s unreal and I love the saxophone break.
4) Ten Walls – Walking with elephants
Been hearing this on the radio a lot lately and I really love it. It’s great to have a classic instrumental club track in the charts.
5) Nina Nesbitt – Two worlds away
Found this completely by accident and have fallen in love. Such a pretty acoustic-based song.
6) John Mayer – Say
One of John’s more underrated efforts and one I feel even he neglects sometimes. This was written for and appeared in the movie ‘The Bucket List’ although I came to know it through the modern re-adaptation of ‘The Karate Kid’ a few years back. It’s the song that got me into John Mayer and it’s so pretty. It’s one of the most inspiring songs and I just love it so, so much.
7) Coldplay – True love
Hauntingly beautiful. Love this.
8) George Ezra – Barcelona
This man is such a talent. Really love this song.
9) George Ezra – Song 3
Another incredible song off George’s debut album. Awesome.

10) Beck – Morning
I went and saw ‘If I stay’ at the cinema the other day and this appeared in the movie. I instantly fell in love with the soft guitars and the haunting melody. Such a haunting, stunnning song.
