My Top 20 Most Played Songs
Advantages: Some of my favourite tunes
I haven't had itunes on my laptop that long because I quite enjoyed sharing itunes with the rest of my family on the PC because I could steal their music. So this playlist is actually not what I expected, mainly because it is not the same music as my ipod but still it is representative of the limited collection I have on there. So here we go in reverse order...
20. 1985 - Bowling For Soup
I know the reason this is on here. Although it is not one of my favourite songs, I compiled a loud, rocky playlist because the teenagers in the corridor love rap music and like to blare it out. This is my act of revenge for when they are shooting their BB guns in the corridor and they soon get annoyed and move away from my door. As you can see at number 20, they do this quite frequently.
19. Up the Junction - Squeeze
This song reminds me of my dad because he used to play it in his band as a teenager and as a keyboard player he never could get the timing quite right! Reminds me of home and perks me up those days when I'm missing my daddy.
18. This Charming Man - The Smiths
Always puts me in a good mood and I always play it before I go out. Good one to dance around to whilst getting ready. Reminds me of the days when I first started going out to clubs and it was the same songs every week. This was played religiously just at the point of the night where I was merry enough to enjoy it but sober enough to remember it!
17. Another Girl, Another Planet - The Only Ones
This song reminds me of nothing except an advert a while back but I just love it!
16. In For The Kill - La Roux
Takes me back to the last time I was in England, dancing away in the student bar. Reminds me of all my friends at home so when I feel a bit lonely I like to listen to this and it makes me think of them back at home and what a huge party there is going to be when I get back.
15. Going Underground - The Jam
Another dancing around the room number!
14. I Knew Prufrock - Frank Turner
This just reminds me of England. I love the words and all the English references. Especially love the video to it.
13. Fancy Footwork - Chromeo
One of the few songs I can actually say reminds me of happy times in France. I am not really a big electro fan but this at least has a tune and reminds me of driving home through summer sunsets in the south.
12. Ask - The Smiths
Another Smiths favourite. This song is actually quite jolly for them! I love the chiming nature of it.
11. I Don't Love You - My Chemical Romance
Had an horrendous break up a while back. This was my get it all out song. And yet now I enjoy it rather than looking back on it with bitter memories. I think I would call it My Lucky Escape song.
10. Gravity - Embrace
When this came out I loved it and although it wasn't too successful it takes me back to that time, which was a very happy time indeed! I think the lyrics are lovely too.
9. Baby I'm Yours - Arctic Monkeys
An old romantic remade by the arctic monkeys. I thought it was actually them who wrote it at first until my grandma started singing along...
8. Long Live The Queen - Frank Turner
I love the lyrics to this. This was a breast cancer charity single that frank Turner wrote about his friend who died of breast cancer. "You'll live to dance another day, just now you'll have to dance for the two of us". It makes me sad but is a shining example of how life must go on.
7. Mint Car - The Cure
Not one for a soppy love song, I find the chirpiness of the melody allows me to appreciate the lyrics without being labelled a romantic!
6. Dreaming Of You - The Coral
I'm a teenager again!
5. Boys Don't Cry - The Cure
Another memory from Friday nights past.
4. Bruises - Chairlift
I fell in love with this song straight away! I just love everything about it, so simple yet so brilliant!
3. Australia - The Shins
I really enjoy the happy melody in this and it's another that puts me in the mood for going out. When I am in a good mood I always put this on.
2. Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks
Makes me homesick but still love it! Brings out the English in me if I feel I'm succumbing to the Frenchies too much.
1. Just Like Heaven - The Cure
The lyrics of this are so sweet. He is singing about his wife and the magic tricks he did for her when they were younger and then the "other" tricks he did for her as they got older. Really lovely song if a little depressing towards the end!
So there we have it. My playlist would be very different if I was back in England. As you may have noticed most of the songs have memories attached to them. In England my itunes probably wouldn't be that way.
