10 songs I'm listening to...Tag!

I saw this tag on carbonprincess' blog and thought I'd have a go myself. It seems like it's an old tag but I'm sure I can be forgiven :]

1. Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound.
I am soo excited to see this band at Leeds Festival. I absolutely love this song!

2. Set your Goals - Mutiny!
Another band which I am hoping to catch at Leeds Festival. This is a really upbeat song sound wise. You could have a good drunken dance to this one! haha

3. Metro Station - Shake it.
BIGGEST GUILTY PLEASURE IN THE WORLD. My friend is a dj at a local nightclub and he sometimes plays and dedicates the song to me. Makes me cringe everytime! This song reminds me of a really happy time though so I still love it.

4. Calvin Harris - Ready for the Weekend.
This song is soo catchy I can't stop listening to it. I really love Calvin Harris. He's got an awesome sense of humour and I really love his youtube channel. I'm also going to see him at the 02 Academy in Newcastle in October. Exciting!

5. The Pierces - Ruin.
Such a beautiful song sang by two beautiful women. This song is soo beautiful yet soo bitter at the same time. The perfect combination in my opinion for a 'boys are rubbish' phase!

6. Tilly and the Wall - Pot Kettle Black.
I've seen this band a handful times and they are such a feel good band. This is one of their heavier songs and it's awesome! They've changed their sound quite recently and this is one of their newer songs. I much prefer their older sound but this was a pleasant suprise! I really wish I could tap dance!

7. Polar Bear Club - Burned Out In A Jar.
Another band at Leeds Festival this year. I saw these at the O2 Academy in Newcastle a few month ago and they were awesome. I only wish it was in a more intimate venue. Check this band out. SOO GOOD.

8. Jacks Mannequin - Bruised.
Such a lovely song sang by a lovely man. The singer is Andrew McMahon who is also in Something Corporate. He has such a lovely voice!

9. Paramore - Crushcrushcrush.
I love dancing to this song when I'm out.

10. Shook Ones - Bad Year.
This is one of my favourite bands of all time and I recently had the honour of cooking for them when they played a venue in Newcastle. My friend is a promoter and put the gig on. I usually make food for bands for him when he gets them to play Newcastle. I made spag bol and garlic bread if you're interested! I got to have a few drinks with a couple members of the band after the gig. I was very shy but it was awesome! Check this band out if you're into melodic hardcore and similar bands like Against Me!, Crime In Stereo and Kid Dynamite.

  1. Great choice of songs there - The Shook Ones are awesome :)

  2. I liked your choices too! If you haven't seen Shook Ones already and you ever have a chance to you should definitely go see them. They're such nice lads too! x
