50 DSC: #20 A Song That You Listen To When You're Angry

Gosh, I am angry. I have been on holiday since Friday but have been without wi-fi for the last few days. That's because internet connection was £15 per laptop for 24 hours at the hotel we were staying in. Not likely, mate! 
So hence the lack of posting for the past couple of days. And my anger. 
The perfect song to sum this up is one of my personal favourites, which helped fire me up through Exam Hell week a couple weeks ago. Never fails to get the creative juices flowing either. So here is #20...
Born For This - Paramore

50 DSC: #14 A Song From A Band You Hate

#14  A Song From A Band You Hate
I usually don't like being negative on this blog, or in my taste of music in general. I don't really hate much music, but this band I seriously dislike. I just don't get the hype. They seem to be on every major TV programme like the X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing finals and are always built up to be really big. But for me, they just annoy me. 
So the song I've chosen today is... 
Shine - Take That
Which band do you not get on with?

April: Top 20 (Part 2)

This is the second part of my Top 20 songs from April 2011.
Click here for Part 1!
Here is 10 - 1...

20. The Black Eyed Peas - Just Can't Get Enough         
The first few times I heard this song I didn't even recognise it as a Black Eyed Peas song - which made me like it even more for some reason. I'm also loving the nod to 'Inception'!
