    ‘Ultimate Collection’ commemorates the 15 years since Katie Melua released her debut album, ‘Call Off The Search’, which topped the charts and set her on course to become the best selling female artist in the UK and Europe of 2006. The standard edition of the album contains 30 songs from her 7 studio albums, including both covers and original songs.

    Not the ideal Katie Melua compilation IMO, it contains a bit too many winter songs from her last album or other random album cuts, yet leaves out some important stuff like her single A Happy Place. However, it's her biggest compilation yet, so I'll enjoy going through this survivor and I hope people will join in the adventure!

    The songs will be divided into groups according to the tracklist order because she shuffled the songs up nicely, no need to do it myself.

    a weak batch... no idea why she included some of these songs on a "best of" while leaving out some great singles... the next group will be packed with gems though

    1 Call Off the Search
    2 Piece by Piece
    3 The Walls Of The World
    4 Just Like Heaven
    5 If You Are so Beautiful
    6 The Little Swallow

    Yes! Thanks for the tag - will give the songs I don’t know a listen.

    Can you tag me each round? Bit cheeky but otherwise will forget.

    Of course, I plan to do that cause these topics get lost easily among the survivors and I need the regular voters thank you for joining!

    1 Nine Million Bicycles: this is part of the soundtrack of my wedding so I cannot be objective with this.
    2 Plane Song: got me hooked
    3 In My Secret Life: nice one!
    4 The One I Love Is Gone: those lights in her eyes in the video are scary... nice song, highlights her interesting singing style.
    5 Crawling up a Hill: cool
    6 What a Wonderful World (feat. Eva Cassidy): a beautiful song in any version. Their voices are sweet together.

    I know that one song where she gets dragged across floor in the video. And that one lasts a lifetime. So thank you dear @Carbon but I'm a bit busy with turmoils to listen to miss Melua right now.
