This is a great track – it’s got the blend of pop and rock perfectly matched and makes for the idilic #FeelGoodFriday track.

No official video has been released yet, but we’ll keep you posted on this front, as always. I’m also very excited by this track and look forward to checking out their album, when it arrives.

Sheppard are an Australian indie-pop band, consisting of 6 members; siblings George, Amy and Emma Sheppard, plus Michael Butler, Jason Bovino and Dean Gordon.

The group found its earliest formation in 2009 and by 2013, the line-up was complete. In 2014, the band released their first album, ‘Bombs Away’. The song ‘Geronimo’ was the second single taken from the album and really made its mark.

The song is the epitome of awesome! It’s perfection in a pop song with its indie pop feel, catchy hook and intense tempo.

It has been featured in the Disney show, Girl Meets World, on the trailer for the film Paper Planes and is also in the film, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip.

#Christmas #FeelGoodFriday: Kelly Clarkson – ‘Underneath The Tree’

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

This week, in honour of Christmas, I have been posting a daily themed track, as usual, but am adding to a special Christmas playlist, each day, which you can follow on Spotify here – https://open.spotify.com/user/muzik5peaks/playlist/6NNRbSEYkO3LMXx2dSrE0I

Every day this week, I have been adding 5 new tracks to the playlist (based on the theme that day). Today, that playlist is COMPLETE!

Follow the link about to gain access to Muzik Speaks‘ special 26-track Christmas playlist (I threw an extra song in at the last minute today)! Please either subscribe to the YouTube channel or follow the playlist on Spotify 🙂

Oh, and…MERRY CHRISTMAS 2015!


Kelly Clarkson – ‘Underneath The Tree’

She may well be from a talent show, but Kelly Clarkson is remarkable – her voice is great and her music is pop, but you can’t help but love it!

In 2013, Clarkson released her first Christmas album, ‘Wrapped In Red’, and ‘Underneath The Tree’ was the lead single from it. This track has just about every ounce of “feel-good” vibes you could want in a Christmas song – it’s got Clarkson’s amazing vocals sitting nicely above a big band style backing track, complete with sleigh bells, bell chimes and even a saxophone solo. Kelly even recorded all of her backing vocals, essentially making her own choir – that’s quite some feat!

Also added to the playlist today:

  • Glee Cast – Jingle Bell Rock
  • Elton John – Step Into Christmas (thrown in at the last minute!)
  • Pentatonix – Winter Wonderland / Don’t Worry Be Happy featuring Tori Kelly
  • Ariana Grande – Santa Baby featuring Liz Gillies
  • Wham! – Last Christmas

I just want to say to each and every person who has been supporting Muzik Speaks this year and to anyone and everyone celebrating today, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!

#FeelGoodFriday: Jason Derulo – ‘Trumpets’

Reaching Number 4 in the UK charts back in 2013, Jason Derulo‘s single ‘Trumpets’, is my #FeelGoodFriday song of choice this week!

I know the lyrics are as cheesy as anything, but there is something in the rhythm and beat of this song which just puts me in the best of moods!

The song was featured on Jason Derulo’s 3rd album ‘Tattoos’ (and the ‘Talk Dirty’ re-issue).

Are you a Jason Derulo fan? He’s touring the UK early next year, so be sure to try and catch him at one of the venues!

#FeelGoodFriday: Christopher – ‘Tulips’

Christopher is a Danish singer from Copenhagen.

I know little about him, as he’s relatively new to me, and I discovered this tune simply by looking for another song on Spotify, but this song is a true pop gem and I honestly believe will have him exploding onto the charts in no time!

The guy is now signed to a major label after he uploaded a cover of ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Robyn, to a great reception.

I want to hear more from this guy and hope his success in Denmark transpires over here – with a superb falsetto range and distinguishable vocal, it will be well deserved.

#FeelGoodFriday: Simple Plan – ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Sad’

I’ve been a big fan of Simple Plan from their early ‘Addicted’ days and the group of Canadian pop punk rockers are gearing up to release their 5th studio album, in the coming months.

This epic, punchy anthem certainly sets out to achieve what the title says, ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Sad’, and they sure won’t be after listening to this track. It packs the power to turn the biggest frowns into joyful smiles and is the third single to be taken from the upcoming album.

No video has surfaced yet but if one is in the pipeline, I imagine something face-meltingly fun! Happy #FeelGoodFriday lovers!

#FeelGoodFriday: C2C – ‘Happy’

C2C

C2C‘s ‘Happy’ is definitely a feel-good tune, hence it’s selection for today’s #FeelGoodFriday!

C2C are a group of French DJ’s who collaborated by each having their own turntable, responsible for one or two instruments in every song. This idea is very risky, in the sense that it could very easily go wrong!

However all four of them have managed to perfect this technique and come out with very original sounds, encouraging the movement of ‘scratch music’. They’ve produced one (very unique) album called “Tetr4”.

‘Happy’ is taken from this album and features Derek Martin. The song and video both have great Friday vibes (see below).

Enjoy!

*SPECIAL* #FeelGoodFriday: Avril Lavigne – ‘Fly’

Avril Lavigne Banner

I realise that this is the second #FeelGoodFriday post of today, but I felt that this one is ‘feel-good’ for a different reason and wanted to post about it as it’s just been released on iTunes and YouTube. Instead of the song itself being a catchy, feel-good anthem, the reason behind the track and watching the video, is what makes me feel elated.

Having spent some time out of the public eye, whilst battling Lyme Disease, Avril Lavigne has released her first track since 2013, ‘Fly’. It is dedicated to the Special Olympics, taking place in Los Angeles (2015).

Proceeds from the single’s sales will go towards supporting the Special Olympics, so please head over to the link below and get your copy from iTunes; we have 🙂

#FeelGoodFriday: Kelly Clarkson – ‘Heartbeat Song’

Kelly Clarkson Banner

I love this song!

Pop at it’s best; catchy, upbeat, feel-good, not to mention Kelly Clarkson’s epic vocal abilities. Sure, this may be cheesy, but I can’t get enough of it, the bridge through to the chorus is euphoric and as for the breakdown at the end of the song, well, amazing!

Whatever you may think of her (Katie Hopkins, Chris Wallace and Mike Gallagher!) this woman can sing!!!

#FeelGoodFriday: Jus Now featuring Blaxx – ‘Leh Go’

SONY DSC

Oh my days, this song! I discovered this song on the radio, about 6 months ago and just came across it again today! It instantly puts me in the best mood and just makes me want to dance. I defy anyone not to find the carnival-style rhythm of this song, make them want to dance and sing along. Bring it on, with the volume to the max!

What’s giving you that Friday feeling? Does this song make you ‘Feel Good’? Please reply to this post and share it with your friends.
