So Day 1 - My favourite song...

To be perfectly honest, I don't have one favourite song. I have over 7000 songs on my iPod and I go through phases of loving and hating artists and songs. However, there are a couple of songs that always make me stop and listen to them that I think I will always love in one way or another. So here it goes...

  • Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits - I first heard this song when The Killers covered it and put it on their album Sawdust. I absolutely loved their version, but when I heard the original I was truely blown away, it is so magical :)
  • Mr Brightside - The Killers - I love this band beyond belief. They were the first real rock-type band I really listened to and loved, and Hot Fuss was probably the first album I listened to all the way through without skipping a song (bearing in mind I was about 10!). I love so many of their songs and Brandon Flowers has got to be one of the most beautiful men alive, but this song always seems to make me feel amazing and happy..... OOOO and I'm going to see them in Hyde Park soon - I'm pretty damn sure I will cry :)
  • Folding Stars - Biffy Clyro - Saw these guys live in December and wow I love Simon Neil sooooooo much! His voice was even more amazing than I expected and it was probably one of the best nights of my life... I was sooo close to him (will put a picture at the end!) This song just really stood out, it is so beautiful :)
  • Free Falling - John Mayer - Normally, I am fairly against covers of songs, and rarely think that they are better than the original.. But I LOVELOVELOVE this song and this mans voice.. I think he writes some fantastic songs too, but this just stands out to me as its the song that introduced me to him.
  • Let It Be - The Beatles - One of my favourite songs for when I'm feeling down.. I just wish I had been around when they were, incredible lads, incredible music :)
  • Starlight/Time is Running Out - Muse - both great songs by a truely talented band. Damn you Kate Hudson!
  • White Blank Page - Mumford and Sons - Words cannot describe how much I love this band. Marcus just makes me melt <3
Wow sorry, bit long there! Just practicing for my English exam obviously - which is next week - eek :S

Please post a comment (if you've got this far!) letting me know what your favourite song is, and I guess this is a sort of tag, so I will tag anyone who reads this ;)

Roll on Simon Neil yumminess

The last photo is probably my favourite ever.. The edited version took too long to load, but I still love it :)
