I’m starting this thread to ask you what your favourite songs are….
Currently in the charts… or not… or haven’t been for a while….
The kind of thing that when you hear it out of the blue you get a "Oooh, I just love that song" kind of reaction…
Reason being…. I’m updating the good ‘ole repertoire for cocktails for an upcoming wedding…. and I’m interested in getting other’s viewpoints…
I’m a jazzy / bluesy/ soft rock / latin…. kind of singer…. who has sung everything from country to musical theatre, through gospel, classical, rock…. you name it… so I’m VERY open to suggestions and would truly appreciate them! Now GO!!! (Can be male or female… makes no difference)February 20, 2013 at 3:42 pm #126970
I think for practice, Chewie, you should arrange a Mumstown Karaoke night! 😆
I’ll have a think 😉February 20, 2013 at 4:40 pm #126971
Please have a think for me Dave…. 😉 I keep running through the same stuff in my head, and would love to have input from others! 😉
Karaoke…. 😆 My idea of hell! 😆 😆 😆 I’ve been spoiled…. I get to work with real people! Could be a right laugh though!February 20, 2013 at 11:35 pm #126977
I heard a very old song that i hadnt heard in years
Nobody knows – The Tony Rich Project…. it bring me back to Romantic days on the beach in Spain with my husband.
Current stuff…. Will.iam and Brittney – Scream and shout (my kids favourite)
Unbreak my heart – Tony Braxton
mind is gone blank…February 21, 2013 at 9:51 am #126981
A couple of long time favorites of mine were Nilson’s "Without You" and Cher’s "Gypsies, tramps and thieves". Hot chocolate’s "It started with a kiss" is another one not often heard these days. 😉February 21, 2013 at 10:58 am #126984
(I suppose this is the part where I hang my head in shame and confess that I have never heard the Gypsies, tramps and thieves before… 😳 😆 )
LOVE Without You…. always have done
And had totally forgotten the Nobody knows…. 😉
And of course Toni Braxton…. fab voice….
I sat here last night having an eighties moment… everything from Alison Moyet… to the Kinks… Days….
Ah, it’s good to hear the old stuff!February 21, 2013 at 12:48 pm #126985
Have a listen, I’d be surprised if you don’t recognise it 😉February 21, 2013 at 8:34 pm #126995
Thanks! I did have a listen via youtube… and I have to say it still isn’t familiar to me… 😳 I’m hopeless!February 21, 2013 at 8:38 pm #126996
I love anything from Aha, Wham, Cat Stevens, The Carpenters and ABBA…. i think if its a group thing, you cant go wrong with any of the above. Robbie, Take That, West life and Boyzone always go down well, for a bit of girl power a bit of spice girls lol
I LOVE anything from Enrique, he is just so sexy and it comes across in his music.
my current play list is the following, its all dance tracks/running tracks.
Not a Saint – Vato Gonzalez vs Lethal Bizzle
Scream and Shout = Brittney ft Will.i.am
Sweat – David Guetta & Snoop Dogg
Fresh 83 – Game ft 50 Cent
On the floor – J Lo ft Pitbull
Dance Again – J Lo ft Pitbull
Rest of my Life – Usher ft David Guetta
C’mon (catch em by surprise) Tiesto vs Busta Rhymes
Can you Hear me = Wiley ft Ms D, Skepta & JME
My Life – 50 Cents ft Eminem & Adam Levine
Feel this moment – Pitbull ft Christina
Wouldnt really suit a wedding, but great tunes for working out to. They get you pumped…..February 21, 2013 at 10:31 pm #127002joeyruddMember

LUKA!!! I just love that one…. 😉 I already do True Colours, and Time after time… , Eagles yip, do them and a bit of G & R…

Huey Lewis & The News ‘Stuck with you’
George Harrison ‘My Sweet Lord and ‘Got my mind set on you’
Rihanna – Umbrella (the lyrics to that are fab – even is she is a bit of a twat!)

They are just some of the ones I have been listening to lately and loving.
