Songs and Artists I'm loving at the moment!

 Music is a big part of my life. It gets me through my day really. I feel a bit lost if I don't have the radio, my iPod or a CD on in my room. I just love it, as there are songs that you can relate to, have a cry to, or just dance around without a care in the world to. So I thought I'd share a bit of my music taste with you! And I promise that I'll try not to go on too much about Taylor Swift *has fingers crossed behind back*. I said I would try, okay!

Starting off are my Top 5 songs I'm loving! 


1. Taylor Swift- Sweeter Than Fiction
Okay, okay, I stumbled at the first hurdle. But none of my other ones are Taylor. However much I love her! So this is her new one for the film soundtrack of One Chance, the film based on the story of Paul Potts, who won Britain's Got Talent in 2007. I really want to see this film, so naturally I had to check out the soundtrack too! 

2. Lorde- Royals
This always has me singing along. The simple melody and harmonies always make me feel at ease. A real chill out song. 

3. Half Moon Run- She Wants To Know
I loved this band since Full Circle, and they just keep churning out some great tunes! A song for easy days with its soft vocals and slightly dark undertones.

4. Ben Pearce- What I Might Do
The dancer in me adores electronic music. And this is no exception! Great beat, and I adore his voice!!!! One of those songs where you just want to dance in the middle of the street like you’re in a flash mob.

5. Luke Friend- What Makes You Beautiful (cover)
If you saw The X Factor a couple of weeks back, you may have seen lil’ Luke Friend cover One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful. When I saw the song choices the day before the show, I had a small feeling that he was going to smash it. And I was right! I think he partly used The 1975’s arraignment for their cover of WMYB in the Radio 1 Live Lounge, but he still made it partly his own, especially with that beaauuttifulll voice of his! I’m a sucker for a rock voice, okay? I’m definitely a #friendie! Also, I have his EP Live Ont’ Sofa on repeat; it’s a perfect mix of covers and originals. I have fallen head over heels in love with it, and him!


I first heard of Darlia when Fearne Cotton played them on her show a while back, so I thought I’d check them out. And I really really like them! They’re an alternative rock band from Blackpool who are causing a stir in the music world at the moment. Think dark grungy lyrics that you can still sing along to but that pack a punch and awesome riffs. My fave is their single Napalm; it’s one of the songs I dance around my room to. A lot.

So, a real mixture there, right? I was brought up on so many different styles, from rock to R’n’B to folk to musicals, so I appreciate different styles in their own ways. And I get asked a lot who my favourite artists are, and I really cannot give me a simple answer! But, for those of you who have asked, I shall now tell you the artists that I hold close to my heart:

Mumford and Sons
Bruce Springsteen
Taylor Swift (of course)
Destiny’s Child
The Who
Led Zeppelin
Deep Pruple
Fall Out Boy
Linkin Park
Bob Marley
Christina Aguilera
Jimi Hendrix
The Beatles
Maxïmo Park
Avril Lavigne
