15 Good Songs Worth Listening To

Updated on October 10, 2014

Elvis Presley - Burning Love

It's not his best song, but it's certainly up there! There's just a great sense of love-induced giddiness and fun that oozes out of this song which makes it one of those I can listen to over and over and over again. Plus Elvis proves with his voice range why even in death he is still the one and only King of Rock 'n' Roll.

David Bowie - Magic Dance

An odd song sung by an odd man for an odd film, which is why I love it. It's unique and so catchy, and all I want to do when I hear it is dance around like a goofball.

This is one of my favourite songs by David Bowie.

Imagine Dragons - It's Time

This song really signifies how I felt about my friends and I starting university last year. I was anxious but excited about going away from home, out of the bubble my friends and I had known and into the real world. For me the song's about growing up and making changes, but staying true to yourself no matter what.

Robert Palmer - Some Guys Have All The Luck

I much prefer Robert Palmer's version of this song to the more popular version by Rod Stewart. In my opinion it's catchier, quirky, and I like that he changed the lyrics so that he was the guy with all the luck. It's a fantastic cover that he truly made his own.

Charlene Kaye - Human

This isn't a very well known song, but it sure as hell should be. The raw emotion that Charlene puts across really touches my heart, and she's right: we are only human. We're not perfect, and there's a high chance in a relationship that someone is going to get hurt. We are so quick to put the subject of our affections on a pedestal, risking being hurt when their true colours show through, and this song portrays that perfectly.

The Honeycombs - Have I The Right

Everything about this song is amazing. The rhythm, the singing, the lyrics, everything. Need I say any more? I went through a phase where I had this on repeat for six days, and I still can't get enough of it.

Nightwish - Amaranth

The orchestral elements and the vocals make this one of the few metal songs that I really love.

Passion Pit - It's Not My Fault, I'm Happy

Okay, the song is about divorce, but it's one of those songs where I can't help feeling super happy hearing it. The introduction's got that sort of spiritual sort of feel to it and I don't know about you guys but I just have to dance (or just sway in my seat) to it.

And I love the similes and metaphors! "I was beat down to a pulp rocking back and forth somewhere"? "When your past lingers like rain clouds casting shadows below"? I know there are better similes and metaphors out there, there's just something about the whole package that I simply love.

Listen to this song. You're welcome.

ELO - Roll Over Beethoven

One word: genius.

Seriously, there's nothing else to say. Except ELO are perhaps one of the greatest rock groups ever in my opinion. They just have that different sort of vibe to anything else I've heard.

Blancmange - Living On The Ceiling

If you haven't heard this song, you're missing out! A mixture of 80s synth pop and flavours of the Middle East, 'Living On The Ceiling' is another quirky and unique song to add to your playlists. Released in 1982 it became Blancmange's biggest UK hit.

Plus singer Neil Arthur is from my neck of the woods, so I can't not like his Lancs accent in this song!

Foo Fighters - The Pretender

Because who doesn't like a song that tells someone that they don't take rubbish from anyone? 'The Pretender' is a really energetic and uptempo alternative rock track that will get you jumping and stomping around like nobody's business! If you're into soft rock, this is probably for you.

Eli Lieb - Young Love

From performing covers of popular songs to releasing a debut album with another on the way, I'm glad I came across Eli Lieb. I first came across his YouTube channel when he did a cover of Lana Del Rey's song 'Ride'.

Then in July 2013, 'Young Love' came out. It's incredibly catchy and uplifting, and never fails to cheer me up.

Daughtry - Waiting For Superman

I'm sure there are a lot of us who have had bad days where we just want someone to sweep us off our feet or something and protect us from the big cruel world. Enter Daughtry with 'Waiting For Superman'. Not only is the song catchy and emotional, it relates to that need to feel safe and protected from dark and gloom.

Big Country - Big Country

I can't even begin to explain how much I love this song. Though considered a one-hit-wonder, Big Country showed their musical genius with beautiful lyrics you can't help but sing along to and a strong drum beat rounding up the instrumental package that has you moving with the song without you even realising.

Phildel - Storm Song

Beautifully haunting, this song is my last pick. Phildel demonstrates an unlimited vocal range with 'Storm Song', painting a dark picture of the emotions she has experienced on her road to becoming the sensational artist she has become. Kudos to you, girl!
