My recently played songs on itunes

This is going to be one of the most boring posts I'm going to write, and to be honest I was really struggling to think of a Post this weeks. So here is a list of my recently played on iTunes. To be fair there is a film in my recently played, because I don't know how to just get the songs, unfortunately I'm not that technologically minded.


Some of my music choices are a bit dated, but I find the best music comes from the 60's, 70's and 80's so that's why there is some of the Beatles music in this mix.


Just to point out, I know that Harry Potter and the half-blood prince isn't music, but its a great film and the instrumental music throughout the film is also pretty good.



So the last song on iTunes I listened to was One and only by Adele, I love this song and basically anything by Adele but this has to be one of my favourites, the lyrics are just so beautifully written and yeah basically that's why I love it. 



Now I know what some of you may be thinking, "Its only September why is she listening to Christmas songs" my answer to that is simple, its never to early to listen to a bit of Christmas music especially last Christmas. I love most Christmas songs, but since I was little this has been my favourite, well this and all I want for Christmas, that's a cracking Christmas tune, if you'll pardon the pun, get it Christmas and at Christmas you have crackers, just me who found that funny, never mind I'll move on.



If you could see me now by the script is a song that I listen to when I find myself thinking about my nan, this sounds weird but this song is great for expressing how I feel. Not a day goes by where I don't think about my nan, even though she died when I was a baby, I think about her everyday and one of the lyrics in this song is "If you could see me now would you recognise me?" and "Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow, Oh if you could see me now". Now I know that if my nan could see all of my family now, my mum, sister, uncle and aunt and her children that she would be nothing but proud, but I cant help but have the knowledge that if she were to appear in front of me tomorrow, she wouldn't recognise me and I always wonder what would be her opinion of the person Ive become as Ive grown up and made my life decisions. I just hope that I'm making her proud with the things that I do and still after 16 years I miss her all the time, even though I was a baby when she sadly died Ive been told about the women she was and how caring she was towards people, and that makes me miss her everyday.


wow, I went of on a tangent there didn't I, I best get back on track. You could be happy by snow patrol is one of those songs that I love to listen to whatever mood I'm in, Luckily my dad had incredibly taste in music and that has influence my taste, so while I was rummaging through his CD collection, I stumbled cross the snow patrol album and fell in love with their music. 

Cracking out a bit of Beyoncé is what I like to do when my house is empty, you cant help but dance to Beyoncé and because I'm considerate towards my family, I mainly play this when they are all out so they don't have to see my terrible Beyoncé moves.

Fast car by Tracey Chapman is my favourite songs from the 80's, I have my dad to thank for playing me this song so I thankfully know this songs exists, its amazing and so are the rest of Tracey Chapman's songs, Its funny because the last time I listened to this song, I was actually in a car which makes the listening experience that little bit better (I've just realised that I must sound like the most pathetic person alive but hey, this is how I like to write.).

Now its getting good, Love is on the radio by McFly is amazing, but the version where Giovanna Fletcher is singing (Tom Fletcher's wife) is well, I cant even describe it, her voice is amazing and I could listen to her version for hours on end and not get bored.


Jack Johnson is great for feel good music and that's why I've been listening to Better together, I just find this song so upbeat and summery, is it weird to find music summery? 



Help! by the Beatles is just perfect, I mean I love music by the Beatles, I like to think its because I have impeccable taste in music, others would say its because I'm weird and are to Young to know their music but what do they know?



So I hope you all enjoyed my nattering on about the recently played songs, and going of on a tangent at various point during this post.


Bye for now xxx
