1) The 1975 – Au Bord De La Mer
A song by the band before they ‘made it big’. Matty’s vocal delivery is different as is the genre. It’s a bit darker than what the band are known for but it’s a fantastic song. Really love this!
2) Elvin Bishop – Fooled around and fell in love
3) James Bay – Let it go
Hauntingly beautiful and drifts into Ed Sheeran territory from time to time which is never a bad thing!
4) Mika & Pharrell – Celebrate
Pharrell is a genius and Mika is one of the most talented guys in pop. The album this is off is incredibly underrated as is this incredible song. So catchy, so uplifting and just an awesome song.
5) 2pac – Changes
One of the best rap songs ever.
6) Jordin Sparks – One step at a time
This is a forgotten pop gem! Catchy, inspiring and just a wonderful, wonderful song. Makes me feel like I’m fourteen again.
7) Rita Ora – Been Lying
One of my all time favourite songs, this is a pop masterpiece. Heartfelt lyrics and the infectious, repetitive chorus shows that sometimes simplicity creates the best songs.
8) 1 Giant Leap ft Maxi Priest and Robbie Williams – My Culture
An often forgotten about collaboration between these three acts, this is an awesome song. Great production, thoughtful lyrics and the melody of the chorus is irresistable.
9) Spice Girls – Last time lover
Girlbands these days could only dream of making an R&B track half as good as this. Naughty, catchy and the bass line is funky as hell. Awesome song.
10) Will Young – Good things
Will Young’s Echoes album is a masterpiece. This is just one of the many great songs that feature on it. The production is second to none, it’s catchy and the melody is infectious. SO good.
