Fleetwood Mac – The Chain
A stomper of a tune with one of the catchiest bass lines ever written.
Fleet Foxes – Blueridge Mountains
This song holds sentimental value for me along with a mindblowing melodies and craft.
Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up
Ben Howard introduced me to a new way of playing acoustic guitar, Love it.
Elbow – One Day like This
One of my favorite songs of all time.
Oasis – Live Forever
Oasis represent a huge part of my youth and this song always reminds me of summers with my family. Great days.
Declan O’ Rourke – Sarah
I still remember the first time I heard this song, on “The Last Broadcast tv show with Dave Fanning…. It opened my eyes to how powerful music can be, especially with just one man and a guitar.
The Doves – Pounding
I love the relentless groove of this song, It doesn’t hold back, It gives you no choice but to stamp your feet along as if you had written it.
Damien Dempsey – Apple of my Eye
Something about this song hits me every time I hear it, it brings a tear to my eye.
Andrea Boceli + Sarah Brightman – Time to say Goodbye
The first time I heard this song I was very young, but I still remember thinking, How do they sing like that? I now know the answer to that question is be born on a different planet.
Bell X1 – Eve, The Apple of My Eye
So simple, So effective.
