Bon Iver - Holocene
I fell in love with this song. I played it almost every morning on the drive to work down the country roads in Winter. It's dreamy and has a calming effect on me.
Echo & The Bunnymen - Killing Moon
This song has a great atmosphere to it that still sounds great. Jangly Gothic pop at it's best.
The Flaming Lips - Bad Days
I pretty much love everything about The Flaming Lips. Even when Wayne sings with a mouthful of toothpaste he's awesome. This song makes me happy.
Hole - Violet
When Courtney Love was in her prime. Love the energy of this live performance. She's got the best female rock voice ever. Also I like her lipstick colour. It's a girl thing.
The Lemonheads - Rudderless
Only really started listening to The Lemonheads this past year. This song sticks in my head the most. I love the whole album. It'll always remind me of Scotland as I listened to it a lot driving around the Highlands.
Mazzy Star - Fade Into You
This song reminds me of one of the happiest Summers I've had, which is odd as it's quite a downbeat song in a way. It's whisky and warm Summer evenings to me though.
The National - Anyones Ghost
A recent discovery. This is my favourite song from their latest album. They seem great live from looking at this video.
Ty Segall - Tell Me What's Inside Your Heart
Saw them live this year and I haven't danced and sweated so much at a gig in years. So much energy and ballsy pop songs. Am in love with this record.
Nirvana - Aneurysm
When I was 14 I thought they were the best band in the world and pretty much watched this video on repeat, which surprised some people as I tended to sing pretty folk songs. I was always envious of their energy and really, desperately wanted to be in a band because of them. They made it look fun.
Teenage Fanclub - Sparky's Dream
I saw them live a couple of years ago and Norman was smiling throughout the whole show. It was such a feel good atmosphere, and this song was one of the first I'd ever heard by them.
