heres a few songs that are personal fav's at the moment. take a listen...
scouting for girls-famous
after seeing these boys two times now i cant get enough of their new album :) i saw then last weekend at the midlands music festival and they are just brilliant live, really involve the crowd. i will definately be dragging my friends along to see them for a 3rd time at this years v festival!
Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP- We No Speak Americano
this tune is number 1 in the UK at the moment, its catchy and loveable! my friend shay crazily bounces up and down to it whenever it comes on!
diana vickers- the boy who murdered love
i quite frankly love diana vickers! she was brilliant on the x factor the other year and i personally think her conver of blondies- call me was better than the original! her debut single once went straight to number one which i liked due to its catchyness and her querky voice. however her follow up is good in a different way, i find myself singing along to it whenever its on anyway! i have seen diana vickers star in the west end show 'the rise and fall of little voice' where she was amazing and did some brilliant covers to bigg songs! she was also a pretty good actor, is there anything vickers can't do? im seeing her at v festival also in 20+ days! eeeee! the video to this song is also pretty good.
cheryl cole- happy hour
surprisingly i am liking cheryl cole for her music, dont get me wrong i adore the woman! but she can hardly belt out a note! its a shame that she mimed some of her perfomances such as at the brits or radio 1s big weekend. she claims to be a performer and we can give her that title coz her dance to fight for this love was amazing in my opinion. anyway give chez's album a listen, some aliright tunes... ive picked this song inparticular (happy hour) as i like songs with 'clever' lyrics. such as 'how can i drive you crazy, when ive got no gas'
the cribs- mans needs
i love this band, the tracks not that new but its often plaid very loudly on my ipod recently, i love the lead singers voice on the courus! also kate nashes cover of this song is brilliant, you can proberly find it on youtube... anyway im seeing these boys at reading festival this year and i quite frankly cant bloody wait!
two door cinema club - come back home
new band on the scene. oh my god they are brilliant. they were reccomended by my friend beth and she sent them to my phone to have a litte listen and ive never looked back since! i must know like every word to every song on the album? ha. im also seeing them at reading festival :D shame i dont find the lead singer as attractive as my friend beth does, shes his number one fan, for sure! anyway ive got alot of love for this band and hope they continue to get bigger in the future. ive picked this song purely because i own the floral shirt that the girl is wearing in the start of the music video, my friend beth also pointed this out to me!
katy perry- calafornia girls
i love katy perry, shes crazy! i really like her new song featuring snoop dogg, however i think his imput in the song is pathetic ha! all he does is little 'yeahs' and 'whats' untill his solo rap which is alright but still!! i also like this song as on the chris moyles show they made a parody of it using 'wolverhampton girls' as the theme, im not a wolverhampton girl myself but i support the football club and find myself there often, i also know the places mentioned in the song and think its brilliant. ive also seen katy perry live at v festival 2009 where she had some interesting outfits and dived into the crowd!
Eliza Doolittle- Pack Up
also abit of a new kid on the block. i like her. its a great summer tune, i dont have much else to say about it really!
the drums- let's go surfing
oh my bloody god, i am very much in love with this song! makes me wanna go to newquay! theyre a great new band on the rise and this is a great summer track.
Professor Green - Just Be Good To Green (feat. Lily Allen)
ha i like this song! im pretty sure its a re-do of an old track as i found myslef singing alot to lily allens bit the first time i heard it. im also seeing him at v festival this year! yayy my friend shay also strongly believes lily allen is pregnant and she says her baggy clothing in the video for this song is hiding the bump! is she right? well i wouldnt go with it purely on 'shay has a feeling' as she predicted arctic monkeys would be headlining v festial this year, and there not, she is also guessing that the colour of the wristbands for this years festival will be blue, so we will have to see about that!
ooooooo what a tune! also another summer classic, can't wait to see this song live at v festival! again i like the use of clever lyrics such as 'might be holding you hand, but im holding it loose'
Ellie Goulding- The writer
this girls got herself everywhere lately! i first head of her when she won the critics award at the brit awards! and was like who the hell is she! now im quite a big fan! i love how she plays guitar and contributes to the lyrics of her songs, guns and horses is also a great song, the writer is her new song, the verses arnt that great but i like the chorus :) shes also at V!
kasabien - empire
i will definately be seeing kasabien over the prodigy at v festival! theyre such an amazing band, and deserve headliner status, unlike kings of leon in my opinion! i bought a dress that says kasabien on it today, its mint and i shall be wearing it when im seeing them at v festival :)
The Libertines- music when the lights go out
ahhh i love this band and this song :) it's most definately an indie classic and ive been playing it aswell as their album: Time For Heroes: The Best Of The Libertines.. im looking forward to seeing them ant reading festival as they are headlining the saturday! yesss!
anyway summing up some of my favorite songs right now has made me even more excited for v festival and reading. eeeeeeeeee!
