50 Songs I Love

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you all had a great weekend! On Saturday I went to Canterbury's Food Festival and it was amazing. I was planning to write a post on it but I couldn't get any photos as it was PACKED and whipping out my phone or camera was basically impossible, boo! 

Anyway, today I thought I would share with you 50 songs that I love. Music is so important to me, it has helped me out massively in the past and has the ability to heighten my mood or pull me out of one I don't want to be in. I've been good and only put a few Peter Gabriel songs on here as the whole list could easily be made up of his songs for me. Anyway onto the songs..
