Tuesday = Tunesday

June 17th, 2014 by Amy | No Comments | Filed in Music, Stuff

Hello there! Hope you’re having a super duper week so far Girl Powerettes! Today is Tuesday which means it’s Tunesday around the GP office! Here are the super songs that we’re loving at the mo…


‘Sing’ by Ed Sheeran
This is the first single from Ed’s latest album X (Multiply) and it’s soooo catchy! The video features a puppet version of Ed getting up to all sorts of mischief!


‘Bones’ by Ginny Blackmore
We got the chance to meet Ginny this month and she’s such a cool chick! This track is one of her older songs (her latest is a duet with Stan Walker!) but it’s so beautiful and emotional that we keep hitting play over and over again!


‘Boom Clap’ by Charli XCX
Have you seen The Fault In Our Stars? This funky love song is from the soundtrack. Charli XCX is so cool and talented, we love her!

What are you listening to Lovelies? Share your favourite June tunes in the comments below!
