Top 15 Songs This Week
The top 40 singles in the UK are revealed every Sunday on BBC Radio 1 and every week, without a doubt there will be at least 20 songs in the charts that are either mediocre or crap. So the conclusion to this is to make my own ‘chart’ of underrated songs/ my favourite songs. Yes Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, that is currently number one, is catchy, but you won’t find it on my iPod any time soon and as for Chris Brown’s – Turn Up The Music and Labrinth’s – Last Time, well they are truly irritating.
15.Kyla La Grange – Vampire Smile. An original, good song.
14.D’Banj – Oliver Twist. I could see myself madly dancing to this at a party!
13.The Shins – Bait and Switch which is a calm, laid back song that I can’t wait to see when the Shins play at Reading in the summer!
12.Keaton Henson – Small Hands which is the only song I am familiar with by Keaton, but I love its similarity to Ben Howard’s and James Vincent Mcmorrow’s style.
11.Otis Redding – Sitting on the Dock of the Bay. Sang on the Voice by Amy Winehouse’s friend, which was good, just not as good as Otis’ which is one of my all time favourites.
10.Taylor Swift ft The Civil Wars – Safe and Sound. With all this Hunger Games hype there has been the birth of a chilling, yet endearing soundtrack.
9. Foster the People – Helena Beat. Even though I heard this song around a year ago, it never charted in the UK and when it was played in the film 21 Jump Street (which I went to see yesterday) I remembered my love for the song and like Bait and Switch, I can’t wait to hear it at reading.
8. Jamie N Commons – Devil in Me. You have to listen to this without seeing the singer at first. You will be amazed that a voice like that can come from a young white male.
7. Beyonce – End of Time. The first time I heard this was in my school library when some of my friends were singing it and it was so catchy I had to hear it. One of Beyonce’s best I’d say!
6. Florence + The Machine – No Light, No Light. This song shows Flo at her best, with harps, drums etc all over the place. Also the song and album hasn’t been given enough recognition!
5.The Qemists ft Chantal of Invasion – Fading Halo.Just a great Tune that isn’t well-known at all, but I highly recommend it.
4.Murray James – Blue Today. Murray has such a unique voice and added with a cool song it results in this.
3.San Cisco – Awkward. This song by the unheard of Australian band has been stuck in my head for weeks on end and still hasn’t annoyed me.
2.Lana Del Rey – Dark Paradise.This is an unreleased song from my favourite album of the year so far and is on par, if not better than Video Games, Blue Jeans and Born to Die.
1. And in at number 1 is Azealia Banks – 212. This is my favourite song at the moment and is 10x better than 95% of the charts and it’s only number 12! At reading I will be at the front screaming the part where Azealia goes in.
