My Five Fave Fridays! Favorite UK Summer Hits of 2013

I need something new and I have decided to give you – Five Fave Fridays! I got bored with my Track Thursdays and needed a revival post theme! Five Favorite things every Friday!

This week – I present to you my favorite UK summer hits of 2013!

Bastille – Pompeii

Let me introduce you Bastille – who just skyrocketed to the top of the UK charts with Pompeii. (Their fourth single from Bad Blood) They are headed to release their No. 1 album in the U.S. in September! I just downloaded the album and I love what I’m hearing.

P!nk – True Love ft. Lily Allen

Pink has been on a roll with her collaborations! Following Just Give Me a Reason with Nate Ruess of Fun., she throws down another catchy tune with Lily Allen. I am ecstatic to see Lily Allen back in the top chart spotlight! Haven’t heard a lot of her for years! The video features Pink, her husband Carey Hart and her 2 year old daughter Willow – too cute! Look, Pink even sent presents over to Lily Allen’s daughters. What a sweetie!

I can’t get enough of her. She laughs at people calling her a lesbian. What a cool mom!


Gabz – Lighters (The One)

 Yes. Gabz is another teenager that will make more money with her record deal than I have ever though about at her age. This 14-year-old finalize of Britain’s Got Talent has (of course) incredible talent. Composed by Gabs herself, this song is about “losing the love of your life”. Now, that’s a lot of heavy duty realness from a 14-year-old.

Kings Of Leon – Supersoaker

Another single launched by the always delectable, Kings of Leon. What do you think? It’s definitely upbeat and is quite the catchy summer tune.

Icona Pop – All Night

Another hit following I Love It and… I love this as well! Yes, Mr. DJ. I give you permission to spam this to all your clubs. Do it! Also obsessed with their other single, Girlfriend.
