Hello friends! Today’s post is an old favourite of mine, one I haven’t done for a while, a Courtesy Of! This time, we have one of my best friends, Kate, returning to share some of her top ten favourite songs at the moment!
Bennie and The Jets Revamp – Elton John, Pink, Logic: My dudes give this one a listen. Kate showed me and another friend when everyone had left her birthday party and we were cleaning up, and it was incredibly unexpected. Logic’s part is undoubtedly my favourite.
Getaway Car – Taylor Swift: I can’t say I’ve listened to a lot of Taylor’s reputation album, but I definitely don’t mind this song to be fair. It’s not bad at all, but I’m not sure how much I can get around her new songs, I’m still an aggressive Our Song fan.
Two Ghosts – Harry Styles: If you’ve read my review of the Harry Styles’s concert, then you know this is no surprise considering Kate’s in the same boat as me when it comes to this man.
I’m On Fire – Bruce Springsteen: Now when it comes to Bruce Springsteen, I have to admit, I never listened to his music at all. Never came across it in my life or heard too many of his songs on a regular basis. Until I became friends with Kate. Considering her dad is obsessed with Bruce, one of his songs are always on when I get in the car, and Kate can pick one of his songs within the first five seconds of it playing.
Barbie Tingz – Nicki Minaj: Ahhh, Barbie Tingz. A bop. Definitely my favourite of her recent two releases, so I’m glad Kate’s getting around it too!
Sleep On The Floor – The Lumineers: This song is so beautiful. Since getting Kate’s list I’ve been listening to this song everyday, I chuck it on in the car or on the way into university. Also, give the live version a listen as well.
Blitzrieg Bop – Ramones: This is a song that you either know of and can name straight away, or you’ve heard but have no idea what it’s called or who it’s by. I fall into the latter option, because I was so confused when I read the song name. Obviously I’m familiar with the Ramones, but the song threw me, until I listened to it and realised that I’ve literally been listening to this song my whole life, and it’s it nearly every early 90’s teen film.
Whole Wide World – Cage The Elephant: This was another song I’d never heard until I asked Kate for her list of songs. It fits her. I don’t know how but I can definitely see her loving this song – check out the Spotify Single version of this song, I really enjoyed it. Also, there’s another version of this song by Berhana, if you find it, give it a listen, it’s like the Priya version to the Kate original of this song. It’s the two of us in two versions of the same song. Insane.
If I Could Fly – One Direction: Kate sent me this list before we saw Harry Styles live, so she probably freaked out a little when he performed If I Could Fly. We all know how I feel about this song, so it’s no surprise my best friend feels the same.
Finesse (Remix) – Bruno Mars ft Cardi B: Oh my goodness this song is still a tune. Five months into the year and it still goes just as hard as when it was released in January. No doubt.

If I could Fly & Two Ghosts – yes!! I also really love Finesse but I think because I listened to the original so much when the album came out, I’m still a little biased with that version as opposed to the one with Cardi B! xx

Both those songs continue to make my stone cold heart thaw out every time I listen to them – and as much as I love the original, the whole 90s remix, added together with Cardi is too much for me to not be my fave haha xx
