5 Songs This Week…

Alex Clare – Too Close

This is very popular at the moment and Radio 1 have been playing it over and over…quite commercial but I like it nevertheless. I’m not sure it will age very well however.

Hooverphonic – Vinegar and Salt

Fun – We Are Young

Ellie Goulding – Jolene (Cover)

Ellie Goulding’s voice is beautiful and this cover is absolutely stunning. Enough said! PS: I usually enjoy the Radio 1 live lounges. Slow acoustic versions of songs just have a way of getting to me.

Niki & The Dove – The Drummer

The weekly dose of electropop! I actually hated this song when I first heard it but I think it’s one of those they call ‘a grower’. I don’t have anything else to say about it…just listen and see if you like.
