My Top Ten tracks of the month! I've been mostly listening to dance and synth this month. I blame the few moments of sun we had...
Hey Hey Hey - Katy Perry (2017)
Marianna's obsession with Katy Perry continues unabated. Worse luck. Still, at least this one - the fifth single from her fifth studio album - has a pretty cool video. I think the concept would make for a really fun movie or TV show!
Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin (2006)
I found my old iPod while decluttering and loved it so much I went on eBay to get some speakers that would work with what is now a positively ancient piece of tech! It's like a time capsule of musical greatness, and not so greatness... Breaking Benjamin are part of the former though, for sure.
2002 - Anne-Marie (2018)
Continuing with the nostalgia vibe, can you believe that 2002 is now long enough ago to be wistfully remembered in song?? Anne-Marie's only 27 too, so she really has no excuse! Still, omg, that inflatable backpack. The butterfly grips. The massive baggy jeans. Good times.
Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne (2013)
In an attempt to reduce the amount of Katy Perry I have to listen to, I tried introducing her to Avril Lavigne. That backfired spectacularly as she now requests frequent repeats of this, er, musical masterpiece. It even made #82 in the Japan Hot Top Airplay chart!
Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX (2014)
Clueless was pretty much my favourite film as a pre-teen, and I still want to wear most of the outfits now. I'm basically blaming Fancy's take on it for the current 90s revival.
Honey, I'm Good - Andy Grammer (2014)
A top ten hit in the US, Canada, and South Africa. The UK has yet to fall for the country charm...
1999 - Charlie XCX & Troye Sivan (2018)
I know, I know. This list is just nostalgia overload! I think I'm liking it because I'm in such a better headspace; I'm at the stage where I'm looking back on it fondly but not actually wishing I could go back anywhere. Plus the vid for 1999 is a reminder of just how awful late 90s fashion really was.
Of The Night - Bastille (2013)
Of The Night was one of the last songs I had put on my iPod before I stopped using it. I still love it!
Hangover - Taio Cruz ft. Flo Rida (2011)
Definitely one thing I don't miss about post-baby life! :)
This month's spoof song is The Typewriter, composed by Leroy Anderson in 1950. We played it for Marianna the other day after all attempts to explain what a typewriter is met with disbelief.
