Quite a few big songs out this year, and events to (Pippa Middleton’s arse remind you of a day in April maybe), so here’s some of our favourite tunes of the year.
Example – Changed the way you kiss me
Just something about this tune that makes you just wanna crank the volume right up, and when the bass kicks in on the bridge, you wanna bounce. Simple as.
I know Coldplay are marmite – you either love them, or hate them. I’m in the earlier category and having seen them live this year (gig of the year), it’s cemented my love for the band and this song itself just doesn’t seem to want to go away at the moment – maybe the first number one of 2012?
Charlene Soraira-Wherever you will go
Who’d have thought a cover version of The Calling and an advert for tea would bring us such an amazing song by Charlene. You can listen to this and just chill completely. Her album Moonchild is also just sublime
Katy Perry-Last friday night
It’s been a huge year for Mrs Brand. Twice in Cardiff (lucky girl) and this song/video is just one of the most fun tunes of the year. Watch for cameos from Hanson, Kenny G and Debbie Gibson
Rihanna-We found love
Does this woman actually rest? The video was the one that an Irish farmer stopped the filming of, due to Rihanna being in a state of undress…. The tune is pretty damn awesome, thanks to a certain Calvin Harris
Straight Lines-Set me on fire and feed me to the wolves
A strange choice for best of 2011? I’ve seen them several times, and they are just awesome. This is taken from the album “Persistence in the game”, and is one of those songs that’s best listened/watched live – the crowd conga..not mosh! :)
