January: Top 20 (Part 2)

Hello and welcome to Part 2 of January's Top 20 where I will reveal my number one song of the past month! Read on to find out...

10. Rizzle Kicks - Mama Do The Hump
What can I say, this is the catchiest song so far this year - it literally goes round and round in your head. Rizzle Kicks have proved themselves as more than a one hit wonder and I hope they continue to storm it in 2012!

Welcome to the first Top 20 of 2012! This is where I run down my Top 20 songs of the past month. Tomorrow, in part 2, my number one song will be revealed but for now here is 20-11...

20. Snow Patrol - In The End
I'm lucky enough to be going to see Snow Patrol play in the O2 in two weeks and I absolutely can't wait! And so, in preparation for the concert, I've been listening to Fallen Empires and In The End is their most recent single that has been released and it is pretty darn gorgeous!

My Top 30 Most Anticipated Films of 2012: Part 1

Hello and welcome to my annual run down of the Top 30 films I am most looking forward to in the next year! As always the films run in alphabetical order and so this part looks at A-C. Make sure to come back soon for the parts 2-5 where you'll find both the big releases and the smaller ones you should look out for in 2012! Enjoy...

A Dangerous Method
UK Release Date: 10th February
Thoughts: A Dangerous Method was featured last year in my most anticipated for 2011 and has remain strong until now when it is finally released. This time I'm even more excited as Fassbender has a lot of buzz around him at the moment. As a Sociology student I'm fascinated by the psychology aspect as well as the relationships between the characters. It should be a strong, thoughtful period piece that may be up for a few awards in the future!

Being Human S4: Promos and Prequels!

The promo pictures for series 4 of Being Human were finally released this week and it looks like the show is going to be re-hauled after the death of Mitchell at the end of last series. 
As you can see it looks like George will be taking a back seat (almost literally!) and Annie taking centre stage. 
Nina will apparently not be returning and so semi-regular last series Tom McNair will become a regular werewolf. Also with Mitchell gone, a new vampire will take his place named Hal. You can see the prequel to his story below...

My Top 20 of 2011: Part 2

Welcome to the second part of my Top 20 of 2011! 
Keep reading to find my top 10 songs which I fell in love with this year including my number one...

10. Cassius - I Love You So (Skream Remix)
This song literally took over my life for a good few months at the beginning of 2011. It is ridiculously catchy, so much so that it was covered again by Jay Z and Kanye West at the end of the year. Skream turns Cassius' melody into an incredible dance tune that bowled me over...

This weekend I'll be posting My Top 20 of 2012, but today I'm looking to the future and to a song that I've been enjoying this past week.

I love their emotion and passion and they're perfect for blowing away the Christmas cobwebs on this twelfth night...
