The most played song by Steve at Talk About Pop Music this week was ‘City Lights’by Blanche.
Technically that’s not true as since Steps released their latest album this week, most of my Top Ten songs were from ‘Tears On The Dancefloor‘. However, since their album tracks are not on YouTube it wouldn’t make for a great playlist, would it? So, I’ve used the Top Ten songs that are not Steps for this week’s playlist.
Anyway, back to Blanche! She is the young girl from Belgium who will be their entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. At first I didn’t think much of this song but it has grown on me so fast and I can understand why it is one of the favourites to win! Good luck Blanche!
Talk About Pop Music Weekly Top 10
The Best Of The Rest
More Eurovision songs this week, of course. Kristian Kostov is representing Bulgaria this year with the song ‘Beautiful Mess’ and once you get over the fact that you could drive a double-decker bus through his teeth the song is really, really nice.
There’s also Nathan Trent from Austria with ‘Running On Air’ and to be honest although I love the song I could actually quite happily watch the video with the volume off!
Final Eurovision song is ‘Verona’ from an Estonian duo and this is absolutely one of my favourites this year.
The awesome Scottish band Texas released their latest album this week and it is so great to hear them back with their sound returning to why I loved the band in the 90s!
There are also a few songs in here that were included in our Earth Day playlist – who doesn’t love a bit of Joni Mitchell or Neil Young?
I discovered both Felicia V and Cazzi Opeia on my Spotify Discover Weekly playlist so of course they are both awesome and I love them both.
