Top 10 Songs of the Summer ! (#7)


I have no IHSW to report on this week as I didn't stitch! My mojo hasn't gone but I have been reading a little and as I can't do both I gave books a turn. Just like stitching they steal time, you think you will read/stitch for an hour and when you think you have been it turns out it was three hours! Eek!

The last topic for Septembers Top 10's are songs of the summer as Autumn is now officially here. In all honesty I haven't listened to much music which is weird for me. So my choices are less songs of the summer and more songs that have been released this year that I like!

Before I start on that I have October's theme and topics ready :)

The overall theme of October will be Autumn/Halloween. For those of you (she says optimistically hoping that some more people will join in the fun) who aren't fans of Halloween then feel free to adapt what you write about to more of an Autumn feel and vice versa. As for me, I love both, and my birthday is in October so its always a time when I need distracting from all the candles on my cake!

So without any more waffling...

6th October: Top 10 things I love/hate about Autumn.

13th October: Top 10 Halloween/Autumn themed charts.

20th October : Top 10 Scary Movies/Books.

27th October: Top 10 Fancy dress ideas.

And here is the Top 10 Songs of the summer (or 2015 so far!)

1. Shut up and Dance by Walk the Moon

I just think this song is really catchy and when I am walking to work it gets the blood pumping! :)

2. St Jude by Florence and the Machine

I love Florence and the Machine, her voice is mesmeric and so powerful.

3. Lips are Movin by Meghan Trainor

Isn't summer all about cheesy pop?

4. Take Me To Church by Hozier

This is a video made by a ballet dancer and I just love it.

5. Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding

Even though I have no desire to read the books or see the film, I do like Ellie Goulding and I really like this song.

6. Hold Back the River by James Bay

Every summer needs a little folk music.

7. Cheerleader by OMI

For when the sun is shining!

8. King by Years and Years

9. Elastic Heart by Sia

10. See you again by Wiz Khalifa

Now I am off to check to see Tiffs and Keebs choices :) Why not join us?


  1. Some really catchy choices here but my favourite is Hozier, it's just such a haunting melody.

  2. I only know a couple of these, and I love that ballet to Take Me to Church, I saw that a few months ago. Very powerful. Great list!

    1. Thanks, I saw it a while back too but it has just stayed with me.

  3. No doubt, I've got one foot in the grave. I only knew #3 because of Tiff's list and I only knew #5 because of a Miranda fan video, but otherwise, nada. I am officially completely out of touch. I think the youngest song on my list was from 2008....just sad.

    1. Hehheh...its not sad! It's what makes us all different :)


I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Spill the beans...
