#25 A Song From Your Childhood
One of my earliest memories is of me doing some pretty epic air guitar to this song. Now, every time I hear it I am reminded of the innocence and brilliance of being a child, who can literally 'rock out' without a care in the world.

50 DSC: #24 A Song That Make's You Want To Exercise

Let's Get Ready To Rumble!
This song makes me pumped to exercise. Which is no mean feat I tell you!
I actually went running today - only for about 10 minutes or so but it's a start. Plus it started raining and... I couldn't breathe, but if I keep it up then it'll get easier... right?!
So anyway I watched Friends Season 3 TOW The Football this morning and this song just really put me in the mood to exercise, so I figured this was a good one for the challenge.
It's also incredibly nineties :)

50 DSC: #23 A Song No-One Would Expect You To Love

I like such a variety of music that it may be hard to surprise some people with my musical choices. But this one is not only a little alternative (and old!) but is also a great love of mine, so it's great to share it with anyone I can. 
I believe this song is very underrated and holds so much emotion that it's a travesty that more people, especially my age, don't know and love this song. So here is my #23...

May: Top 20 (Part 2)

Here is the second part of May's Top 20. (If you missed Part 1 click here!)
So which song claimed the number one spot this month? Read on to find out...

10. Katy B - Easy Please Me
A deeper rhythm than usual, Katy B pulls another hit out the bag. Standing up for the girls, Katy B has definitely become a well-established artist in the male-dominated world of dance music. I'm definitely becoming addicted to this song.
