Grounds for Divorce - Elbow
All the elements of a track you could want. Sing-along lines, great bass and drops to kick along to.
LA Ritournelle - Sebastian Tellier
This track has actually stayed with me since one of the last episodes of Ugly Betty when I first heard it. It's an absolutely beautiful, yet haunting, yet empowering, yet peace-inducing piece of musical wonder with the final third providing a mesmerising pay off.
Right On, Right On - Silicone Soul
This used to be my walk-to-work tune. I forgot about it for a long time and every now and again it comes up during a Playlist shuffle and I get immediately transported to a place of merciless neck bopping and toe tapping. The beat used to be my walking pace until age started creeping up on me.
Green Eyes - Coldplay
I know Coldplay are often vilified for being whiney old drivel, but their early albums were immaculate. I found myself singing Green Eyes constantly for a few months. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart and this makes me smile. And all their tracks give you some amazing lyrics and melodies to join in with.
Stand on the Word - Joubert Singers
Dare you to not walk away trying to play the piano riff at the start. Uplifting.
