    All Delta songs are flawless .. mostly.

    Someone whose career I've known since the early 00s when she was in the Spy Kids trilogy and subsequently Hannah Montana, Emily Osment had a bit of a pop career in the 10s with some solid pop. Fortunately her music wasn't too Disney-esque and was more electronic-pop than bubblegum. Lovesick is an awesome, catchy pop number.





    Being the best vocalist in a girlgroup normally leads to amazing things, but Nadine Coyle didn't have that much success with her solo career (blame Tesco). Her debut album was fairly average with only a couple of highlights, Lullaby included where her vocals sound formidable.

    The highlight for me of the recent ones here is that amazing Delta Goodrem classic.

    A Xmas number one from the early 00s, the Tears For Fears cover is a slow, sad rendition of the song but that's what makes it so good. Mad World is one of the best songs of recent times, it's so haunting and atmospheric.





    Though it was never officially a single by Bruno, it still attained some chart success, Marry You is an uptempo tune with a catchy chorus. I'd personally rank it as one of my favourite songs by Bruno Mars, but I only really like about five songs by him.

    'Mad World' is a great cover and probably the most depressing song ever.

    Not a Bruno Mars fan but 'Marry You' is not bad.

    Agreed, so depressing (but I don't mind that).

    Jennifer Lopez isn't an artist whose songs I'm not generally a massive fan of but this is one of the exceptions. I first heard Mile In These Shoes used in an epic Desperate Housewives S4 promo backwhen so that might be the major reasoning as to why I really enjoy this song.





    Based on the old lullaby 'Hush Little Baby', this rendition of Mockingbird is taken from one of Carly Simon's albums. She's a singer who is quite underrated and has loads of hidden gems of songs. Her and James' husky vocals combine well on this track.

    Just checked out 'Mockingbird' and it's nice! I only know 2 Carly Simon songs - 'You're So Vain' and the James Bond theme she did.

    Thanks for checking out it, the Bond theme is my personal favourite of hers. She has quite the extensive discography - 23 studio albums.

    A classic song here from Saturday Night Fever, and my personal favourite from the soundtrack, More Than A Woman is the Bee Gees best outing IMO. It embraces everything the band sells so well and it highlights what the Bee Gees are all about.





    Onto a good rock song, More Than Words was a hit for Extreme in the 90s. I appreciate that this is a bit of a different twist on a love song. The song itslef is quite dynamic and has a good instrumental to it.

    Oh you were right - this is a nice rebound for me. I wish there was a fire emoji I could post for the M's - particularly Mad World and More Than Words. The whole "look right through me" on Mad World gives me chills, and I don't even think of More Than Words as a love song, more of an argument, haha - like cut the crap with the platitudes, lady.

    I love the Bee Gees so much, they are my second favourite group ever. The amount of great songs they wrote and produced is incredible. 'More Than a Woman' is one good example.

    I also like 'More Than Words', what a beautiful ballad.

    I don't really expect any feedback on this group of songs, as they're very musically orientated. The first one is Move On which is one of Sondheim's finest pieces of work, the lyrics are among his deepest. The original here combines the fantastic voices of Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin and make butter melt with how smooth they sound.





    Another musical song, I think I have an addiction. This one is probably more widely known than the previous song, Music Of The Night is one of signature numbers from Phantom of the Opera. This version by Ramin Karimloo is my favourite rendition as I love the tone of his voice.

    I even prefer it to the original Michael Crawford version.

    Yes, I can keep going on about how much I love Hamilton and my personal connection to the show, but it really is a revolutionary musical. This song is the signature hit that most people know, My Shot boasts one of the taglines of the show "I'm just like my country, I'm young, scrappy and hungry and I'm not throwing away my shot". The different musical styles in the song make it an amazing and iconic musical number.





    I first heard this song covered in Pitch Perfect, but I've heard some songs by the band before them. This happened to be my favourite of theirs though, My Songs... has a great chanting chorus that just makes you wanna get up and rock out to it.

    I love the songs from Fall Out Boy's 'Save Rock and Roll' album, including 'My Songs Know...', 'The Phoenix' and many other tracks.

    Kicking off our Ns is a song that is shockingly near 10 year years old, Need You Now was a song that didn't actually do too well in the UK charts but I'd say it was very well-received and sounds great on radio.





    Another song here is one of my favourites associated with the Jackson surname, a dynasty that is musically amazing. Never Can Say Goodbye features a young Michael's vocals and I feel the lyrics are some of the most meaningful I've heard in a Jackson 5 song.

    Can't believe that 'Need You Know' is already 10 years old! It's a modern classic, I love it. 'Just a Kiss' and 'Bartender' are also great songs by Lady A.

    Doesn't it make you feel old? I enjoy Bartender, but don't recall Just A Kiss.
