letsgofriday: The Weeping angels surrounding the Tardis (p!atd: dallon with bass & rain)
I know nothing about chart music, seriously. I don't listen to the radio much, but somehow I still manage to pick up on new songs. Most of it I dislike, but some of it is amazingly catchy and perfect for a night out. Here are some of my picks from the Irish Top 50

Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Hereos ft. Adam Levine
This song is amazingly catchy and I really actually like it.

The A-Team - Ed Sheeran
This song actually, honest to god, owns my heart. It's so beautiful. Check out the music video, too. It was filmed for £20 and it's stunning.

Shake It Up - Florence & The Machine
I don't have this downloaded. Mainly because I am waiting to buy a physical copy of the cd and burn them. I support artists I love, like I love Flo + Gang. If you only download one song on this list, it should be this.

Paradise - Coldplay
I'm not a big fan of Coldplay, the whiny censored.   But I rather like this.

Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People
I love me some Foster The People. It's good to see good bands get recognition. This song is so cheery.

Video Games - Lana Del Ray
This is good. Gooooood.

Good Life - One Republic
Why is this in the list. I don't even know. I'm adding it. Hey sometimes the charts are weird. I LOVE ONE REPUBLIC. I think I shall dedicate my LJ to them. I remember the first time I heard All The Right Moves. I must've listened to that song on repeat for a week.

Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
Yet again, no idea why this is in the charts. Who cares though? Not me. Adding this to the list yeaaahbuddy.

And one album that I adore so much - it's amazing!

Passenger - Lisa Hannigan
I loved Sea Sew (I remember the first time I heard I Don't Know - aah memories!) and this is just as good!


Enjoy!

oh, glory.

I'm really bored, so I'm just going to link to some albums that I dig, for one reason or another. This isn't classic must have albums. It's just stuff I like. There is way more than this.

Wu Tang Clan - Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)
I wouldn't be the biggest fan of hip-hop, but this album. The beats. The whole. I can't express it. It's so relevant, even today.

Alanis Moriesette - Jagged Little Pill
Because who doesn't love some self-righteous teenage angst?

American Idiot: The Musical (can't find a link anywhere, argh.)
I adore American Idiot like none other, and I really debated to put it in here, but I chose the musical version, mostly because I am a massive musical freak. I love them. This is amazing. It's a rock-musical (now I want to put Spring Awakening in here, ah!) which appeals to me like woah. First time I heard 21 Guns I was blown away.

Avril Lavinge - The Best Damn Thing
Yeah, I see you rolling your eyes. Don't scorn, this is a great album.

B.O.B. - The Adventures Of Bobby Ray
The singles aren't good. The rest, is. Letters From Vietnam, if you download just one track from this album, let it be Letters From Vietnam.

Bikini Kill - The CD Version Of The First Two Records
Riot Grrl! I'm sure you know my love for riot grrl, just go through my rants tag. This cd changed my life, no joke.

Diana Vickers - Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree
This may be a mass-market produced album, but it's a good mass-market produced album.

The Dresden Dolls - The Dresden Dolls
I love this album so much. The whole ""Brechtian punk cabaret", the term Amanda invented, is right up my pebble-dash lane.



edit: lol wat half this post is gone missing. okay, go get Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones. That's the most important one out of the list.
