Song Of The Month – August 2018 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies By Panic! At The Disco

LINK TO THE VIDEO This a complete throwback of me from a different time. I remember I went through a phase of mild emo-ness. I loved it. I had a friend at school that used to write song lyrics down on paper and pass them to me in class. For ages, I thought she was some sort of philosophical poetical marvel! Turns out she was just sending me Papa Roach and Incubus lyrics. It made me realise that I wasn’t paying attention to lyrics as much as I should have! And although she never sent me this song because I’ve…

Song Of The Month – July 2018 – Ready For Love By India.Arie

LINK TO THE VIDEO I think this is the 3rd time that India Arie has popped up in my Song of the Month playlist. What can I say but she’s amazing! Songs like this make me wish I never gave up the guitar but it hurt my fingers though! Anyway, this song gives me goosebumps, it’s so sincere and beautiful. If you’ve never heard it before I suggest you listen to the words carefully, if you have heard it before, sit back, relax and be taken away to that place her voice sends you to. Goosebumps! Follow me on YouTube…

Song Of The Month – June 2018 – Should’ve Been Us By Tori Kelly

LINK TO THE VIDEO With a voice like hers, I’m not sure why she isn’t bigger! But perhaps the market is too crowded or people just haven’t given her a chance but honestly, Tori Kelly is so amazing and that hair!! Had to mention the hair, of course! I love this song and did from the second I first heard it but I loved it even more when I saw her perform it at the VMAs a couple of years ago. I first heard of her when she was the featured singer on a Professor Green song (Lullaby) and honestly…

Song Of The Month – April 2018 – 2U By David Guetta and Justin Bieber

LINK TO THE VIDEO I am loathed to add Justin Bieber to my definitive list of songs I love because I am a grown ass woman but goddammit, he makes fairly good music (now) especially when he collabs with dance DJs. It’s just a winning formula for the guy, it was a toss up between this or “Where R U Now” with Skrillex but this one caught me in the right mood so here you go. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee…

Song Of The Month – March 2018 – Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara

LINK TO THE VIDEO I have to say there is something a little different about Zedd’s take on dance music. From collabs with Hayley Williams to Foxes, it’s clear that he focuses on the song and not just the beat. Which is why this collab works so well! I love Alessia Cara’s voice and I played a few of her songs to the kids but the boys couldn’t care less (their loss) and this was the one that my daughter latched onto the most. We love it, this is our song. As soon as the video starts, she knows what…

Song Of The Month – February 2018 – Breathe Life By Jack Garratt

LINK TO THE VIDEO I can’t even describe this sound. This is music like I’ve never heard. I have many a list of products to try, places to go and albums to buy (because some people haven’t yet come round to the idea of Spotify!) and this artist, Jack Garrett, is on the list of albums for sure. I will admit, if you don’t tell anyone, that I like to dance to this when I’m alone like I’m some sort of contemporary dancer, because I don’t think you can dance to this in a normal “club” sort of way. Anyway,…
