I recognise this is a dodgy blog post because music is a very subjective topic but for what it’s worth I’m going to give my opinion anyway on songs from BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. If nothing else, it’s a chance for you all to criticise my choice in music so take advantage while you get the chance.
Just for the heck of it give each song a ‘Yay or Nay’ so I can see who agrees with my great music choices.

Ed Round 2
I know I’m being biased here giving Ed Sheeran two spots in this list BUT this is merely a special mention because of the song he covers, ‘I’m In Love With The CoCo’ by OT Genasis. Too Good.
