music // catchy songs

5 Apr 2012

It's been a while since I've done a music post and following on from my gushy boyband post a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd share my favourite catchy pop songs. My friends give me a bit of an eye roll when I tell them I've downloaded yet another pop song, but I can't help it. Catchy songs are my staple at the moment. I've been listening to lots of up tempo music since I've been living in London as I find it better to walk to. And I do a lot of walking. Slower music tends to make me sleepy while on the tube or on the go. So bring it 1D and Bieber.

Karmin – Brokenhearted

I'd never heard of Karmin until they performed on the Zooey Deschanel hosted SNL but this song got under my skin and I find myself singing it in my head.

One Direction - One Thing

We all know about my current thing for One Direction and I think this is song is brilliant and will no doubt be on high rotation for ages! It was written by Swedish songwriters who have written for the best of the best in the pop world.

Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe

I had a look on the Australian iTunes chart to find some new music and had seen this girl's name floating around on the Internet. I think she's was on Canadian Idol and saw a video of her on Ellen and Justin Bieber's signed her or something? Anyway super catchy and the video clip made me laugh.

David Guetta feat. Jessie J - Repeat

This is another classic example of how I love uptempo songs that have kind of sad lyrics. David Guetta does know what he's doing.

Tim and Jean – Come Around

I've liked this song for about two years now and it makes me think of summertime and the beach. We've had lovely sunshine in London and now it's gotten cold again. Come back sun!

Justin Bieber – Boyfriend

Okay so this song actually makes me giggle more than anything, but I can't help but love his attempt to sound a bit Futuresexx Lovesound Justin Timberlake. It really makes me think I could write pop songs though. "I could be your Buzz Lightyear". Really? "Swag swag swag swaggie". Hilarious.

Tigercats – Full Moon Reggae Party

This is my friend's band and SO catchy. Not strictly pop like the others but it's my high rotation playlist at the moment! It's a great great film clip that Tigercats' singer Duncan made too.

Stooshe - Love Me

Late entry! Kate from work just showed me this one...


  1. Haha I love that Carly Rae Jepson song. I think. It's SO LAME THAT IT'S GOOD. I've been listening to a bit of Korean pop lately lolz, have you heard Girl's Generation? SO GOOOOOD.

  2. I love the clip. Hot guy is she going to get him? Nup, he's gay!
    One of my friends sent me a link to some J-pop and it was just too over the top for me. I think boybands is where I draw the line, but I'm going to listen to some more before I give up!
