My Top Songs Of All Time

A.N. So I ran a poll on Twitter to see which topics you wanted to see on Band Week, and this was the winner.
10. Critical Mistake by Neck Deep, now this is probably going to move higher up the list, but since the album hasn't even been out for a week, I'll place it here. It's such a great song, and it's Neck Deep! I mean The Peace and The Panic is such a hyped album... but it deserves the hype.
9. Just What I've Been Looking For by Scouting For Girls, S4G are my childhood, and I love them so much, but this song... it's like a hidden gem, because not everybody knows about it, with S4G most people know Elvis Ain't Dead, She's So Lovely, It's Not About You, This Ain't A Love Song and Heartbeat, but this song is just so beautiful, and it's a blessing.
8. Open Book by Fatherson, like I mentioned on Monday, Open Book is a beautiful song, but to know more about that, go and read about it. But I love this song so much, and Fatherson are the perfect band for this song, you know when you listen to a song and you think that it just suits a certain band? That's Open Book with Fatherson, Ross Leighton's voice really does compliment this song.
7. Eight Days by Twin Atlantic, okay, Eight Days, is a very Twin Atlantic song, it's got their bizarre lyrics, yet it's a masterpiece, it's like abstract art, it's beautiful although you're sometimes left thinking "What?!" Eight Days is a great song, with my favourite line being "I peeled you open, and took photographs of your insides, brings into focus that this camera can never lie."
6. Trigger by Deaf Havana, Trigger is my Deaf Havana equivalent of The Chaser, therefore, I play it to death and 9/10 when I'm listening to Deaf Havana I'm listening to Trigger although I love Deaf Havana to bits, yeah, Trigger is just one of them songs.
5. Good Days by Light You Up. This song is just... I love it, because 1. it's by Light You Up and 2. because it's one of them songs that's just relatable. "I have my good days like everyone else but it's my bad days that are something else" like, I can relate to that, and it's just a great song in general.
4. The World or Nothing by Deaf Havana, now this song is just... lyrically and musically it is fantastic and I love it to bits. It's not overly catchy, but it's still catchy and I love Deaf Havana so much!
3. The Chaser by Twin Atlantic, now if anybody knows me, you will know there has not been one day in the past year since it came out, that I have not listened to it. I drive everybody mad with how much I play it, but it's just such a good song, and it's really catchy... and it's Sam McTrusty, Ross McNae, Barry McKenna and Craig Kneale.
2. Star Girl by McFly since this song came out, this song has always been a staple in my music collection. I love this song so much, and I still remember my reaction when I first heard it on the radio, and I begged my dad to get me the single so because Motion In The Ocean hadn't come out at the time, and as soon as that came out, I was begging to go to Tesco and buy it.
1. Time For You To Stand Up by Twin Atlantic, this song is just so sarcastic and it's a great song. My favourite line is "You say you want distance from me, well don't stand so close." It's a great song by an amazing band!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
