Air – ‘All I Need’
This song has such a unique sound and never seems to date. I love her delicate vocals and the tone of her voice. It chills you out in seconds.
James Taylor – ‘Fire and Rain’
When I was a teenager I spent a Summer in France being an au pair. The French parents were massively into James Taylor and played his Greatest Hits album to me all the time. As soon as I hear this track it reminds me of a bittersweet Summer that was full of adventure but also loneliness….plus I was missing my first boyfriend desperately so the lyrics hit a nerve!
Red Hot Chilli Peppers – ‘Give it Away’
I love the guitars and energy they bring to this song….another unique sounding track – a rock track that you can actually dance to…
Glen Campbell – ‘Wichita Lineman’
I love the simplicity of this song and the quirkiness of the lyrics.
Sia – ‘Titanium’
This is an amazing dance song but also makes me sing at the top of my voice – it brings total joy.
John Denver – ‘Annie’s Song’
This song is simply sublime – when I think about the lyrics and the story behind them, I’m instantly reduced to tears!
Adele – ‘Someone Like You’
Along with the rest of the world I love Adele’s voice and the poignancy of the lyrics. Just brilliant.
Fleetwood Mac – ‘The Chain’
I still find this song really exciting to listen to – this is the band that made me want to be in a band…
Ed Sheeran – ‘Thinking out Loud’
This is a beautifully written song – I’m pretty certain it’ll be considered a classic as years go by. I love his vocals and the production.
Bruno Mars – ‘Locked out of Heaven’
This is a great pop song – I can’t sit still to it and it’s impossible to feel miserable when it comes on – it provides an instant lift.
